Elmer FlickAt one point, prior to Cobb's first batting title in 1907, the Detroit Tigers offered their young outfielder to Cleveland straight-up for Flick, but Cleveland refused. Detroit was not sure the high-strung Cobb would ever settle down and fit in with his teammates. Of course, it proved to be a wonderful _non-deal" for the Tigers.
