And we think footballers are overpaid. Cabrera gets record $292M, 10-year deal • Story Comments LAKELAND, Fla. — This is one number put up by Miguel Cabrera that is not subject to debate. The Triple Crown winner agreed Friday to the richest contract in American sports, a $292 million, 10-year deal with the Detroit Tigers. "I want to finish my career here. I have worked hard to get better, and Detroit is like a house for me," Cabrera said. Cabrera has won the last two AL MVP awards, both times beating out Angels phenom Mike Trout in votes that set off heated disputes in the baseball world. Those in Cabrera's corner claimed his fearsome hitting stats and triple-digit RBIs were worthy. Those touting Trout argued he was a better all-around player and pointed to the value of his WAR, sabermetric for wins above replacement. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski and manager Brad Ausmus stood by Cabrera, flanking him for the announcement at the Tigers' spring training complex. "He's on track to be one of the ...

"When you have a star player, you're much better trying to sign them with two years on the contract rather than one," said Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said on Friday. "When you get to that one year away, that lure of free agency becomes very large for a player. "Secondly, they get additional pressures to test that market," Dombrowski said, adding that he thought it was the "optimum time" for the team to lock up their star. The Tigers did not disclose the financial terms of the deal, but multiple reports put the value of the eight-year extension at $US248 million ($A268.47 million) guaranteed. Add in the remaining two years on Cabrera's current contract, worth $US44 million ($A47.63 million) and he would make ...
My longwinded Ode to the Newest Worstest Contract in Major League Baseball: "You see, this profession is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherf*ers. Motherf*ers who thought their *** would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don't." - Marcellus Wallace (Pulp Fiction) The Detroit Tigers President, Dave Dombrowski, defended giving Miguel Cabrera a 10-year deal today, comparing the two-time MVP to some of the greatest, most sustainable players of all time. According to Dave, it's simple. Past behavior predicts future behavior. And maybe it is that simple, but over SEVERAL factors. In addition to the simple player-to-player comparisons, we have to factor in the competition-- the behavior of the competition as a whole, as well as peripheral factors, such as developments in technology, health & wellness, facilities, and even the cultural differences between, say, Hank Aaron's era and the one in which we currently reside.

It's good to see Dave Dombrowski and the Detroit Tigers show some loyalty to their star player by extending Miguel Cabrera to a 10 year, $292 million dollar deal so he can retire with the Tigers. It would be a shame to see the Tigers best player sign with another team...take for instance the Angels... after all that he has accomplished in Detroit. Good for Detroit for doing it the right way...The Tigers Way!

I'm a huge Miguel Cabrera fan but Dave Dombrowski is a total *** 10 year record breaking contract for a guy about to turn 31.
Cabrera agrees to 10-year, $300 million extension with Tigers: Miguel Cabrera, who has won two straight AL MVPs, has agreed to a 10-year extension worth “just under $300 million,” a source told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick on Thursday. The deal is pending a physical, which is why it hasn’t yet been announced by the team. Cabrera, whose old deal ran through 2015, will be 40 at the conclusion of the contract, meaning he’ll likely be with the Tigers the rest of his career. Writes Jon Heyman, “Cabrera has been playing on a $152 million, eight-year contract that would expire after the ’15 season. People close to him say he loves being a Tiger, and suggested he’s willing to take less than top free-agent dollar to stay in Detroit, although this will turn out to be among the biggest contract in baseball history. “Cabrera is the best offensive player in baseball, but he also has a major allegiance to the Tigers and their people, including president and GM Dave Dombrowski and his assistants, Al Avila and ...

The first step in the Tigers' arbitration process came Tuesday, when the half-dozen remaining eligible players filed. That move from starters Rick Porcello and Max Scherzer, outfielders Andy Dirks and Austin Jackson, reliever Al Alburquerque and catcher Alex Avila was procedural and expected. The next, and more important, step comes Friday, when the team and players are scheduled to exchange arbitration figures. Those are the two salary numbers between which an arbitrator must choose if a case goes to a hearing. More importantly, they offer a middle ground in which the two sides can negotiate. Six of last year's seven arbitration-eligible Tigers reached agreements on one-year contracts just before the deadline to exchange numbers, including Avila, Jackson and Porcello. The one Tiger who didn't, Scherzer, settled just before a hear ...

From Baseball America: DETROIT—Dave Dombrowski said he learned a lesson from Roland Hemond early in his career. Robbie Ray “Any time you trade the known for the unknown, it won’t be a popular deal,” Dombrowski said. So Detroit’s general manager expected some heat when he traded workhorse starter Doug Fister to Washington for three players, including lefthander Robbie Ray. When discussing the deal with reporters, Dombrowski said the 22-year-old lefty was the key to the deal. “We think this guy is a premium, young, lefthanded pitcher on the verge of pitching in the league leagues,” Dombrowski said. “They’re not easy to find.” Ray was a 12th-round pick in 2010, and in his first three years with the Nationals he didn’t show the hard fastball he flashed in high school. But last season Ray saw his velocity jump. So did the strikeouts. After averaging 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings at high Class A Potomac in 2012, he averaged 10.7 strikeouts per nine in 16 starts there in 2013. That helped ...

--from Woody Woodriffe So here we are again, the Tigers making another off-season move. This time it's adding Joba Chamberlain and not re-signing Jose Veras-- at first I was completely content to let Tigers G.M. Dave Dombrowski assemble all of the pieces before I commented on the puzzle, but tonight I'm starting to worry that the final picture will not have nearly enough in it to be recognizable!! Now there's still work to be done, but the question is do you still have TRUST in Dombrowski? Or are your nerves getting the better of you? - Opinions, please!!!
Once thought of as a star of the future for the New York Yankees, Joba Chamberlain agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Tigers on Thursday, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney. The deal is worth $2.5 million, $500,000 less than what sources said the Arizona Diamondbacks offered the right-hander Wednesday. Chamberlain had spent his entire seven-year career with the Yankees. He exploded on the scene as a 21-year-old in 2007. In 19 games, he posted a 0.38 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 24 relief innings. The Yankees then tried to turn him into a starter. In 42 games and 12 starts the next season, he posted a 4-3 record and a 2.60 ERA, again with more strikeouts than innings pitched. But things went downhill from there. Injuries and ineffectiveness ended the starter experiment, and Chamberlain never really developed into a reliable bridge to Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera. Last season, Chamberlain appeared in 45 games and posted a 4.93 ERA and 1.74 WHIP. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski had recently i ...

Dave Dombrowski: Bounce back by Andy Dirks would be 'ideal solution' for Detroit Tigers in left field
Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski reportedly almost traded Justin Verlander and Doug Fister for entire Houston Astros organization but decided he'd be less embarrassed getting fleeced by anyone else.
When asked about the criticism DD is receiving regarding the Doug Fister trade, and reports that other GMs didn't even know that Fister was available and would have offered more... "Well, first of all, I would love to hear the GMs that said that... secondly, I feel we did a tremendous due diligence. (DD apparently lifts a sheet to show a list of young pitchers in the league). I called all the GMs of the players on this list." -Dave Dombrowski (Stephan)
Tigers' Dave Dombrowski still has dealing to do: Dombrowski and new manager Brad Ausmus still need another rig...
Doug Fister Dealt To Nats, Jim Johnson To A's by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS December 03, 2013 2:36 AM NEW YORK (AP) — On a night usually dominated by news of players let loose, the Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics filled pitching needs with trades. Washington obtained right-hander Doug Fister from Detroit for infielder Steve Lombardozzi and left-handers Robbie Ray and Ian Krol on Monday. Oakland acquired closer Jim Johnson from Baltimore for infielder Jemile Weeks and a player to be named. Fister was 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA last season for the AL Central champions, who last month traded slugging first baseman Prince Fielder to Texas for second baseman Ian Kinsler. "It gives us some flexibility for some other things we want to do," Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said, insisting the trade wasn't made to free money for a long-term deal for AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who can leave after next season. Fister joins a talented Nationals rotation that already includes Stephen Strasburg, Jord ...
Drew Sharp: Tigers' Dave Dombrowski deserves benefit of doubt on Doug Fister trade
Secret photo of Dave Dombrowski dealing with the Nationals over Doug Fister.
Not super excited about the Doug Fister trade. I understand we are making cap room for other players, but I loved having four starters that I had complete confidence in. Smiley will most likely be our fourth now. I like having a left-hander in the starting rotation, but I also liked him out of the pen. I am hoping there are more moves in the works. Right now I do not think we are a better over all team than we were last year. Just better on payroll, but not on the field. I am sure Dave Dombrowski has something else up his sleeve.
Can't wait to hear Dave Dombrowski's press conference and how he explains this one!! Doug Fister.. a VERY good starting pitcher for 3 nobodies (actually). Must be something else coming? Has to be? Or??? Are they cutting payroll? FIELDER- GONE..FISTER - GONE.. INFANTE - GONE.. PERALTA - GONE.. But hey they signed Kelly to another contract.. I am sure that makes my wife.. Robin.. happy !!!
Still trying to process the Nationals' trade for pitcher Doug Fister. You have to give up something to get something, and it's clear the Tigers are trading for the future with Ian Krol and Robbie Ray the key components. I know Nats fans love Steve Lombardozzi, but he's really just a utility guy. Any time you can swap a utility guy and a couple of prospects for a guy who's as gifted at getting ground balls as Fister, you do it. In a heartbeat. That said, Dave Dombrowski, the Tigers GM, is smart and sees something he likes on his side of the deal (even if it's just payroll flexibility). Remember, it takes a few seasons to properly judge a trade. So don't let the emotions of the night cloud things. But on the surface, looks like a good job by Nats GM Mike Rizzo.
To everybody who doesn't know: Brad Ausmus isn't doing the trades, it's the GM Dave Dombrowski... so
