No way that a middle of the road pitcher, like Sanchez, should be making $15mil for the next six years.
I'm just loving this info.......I like me some Brookens......What's Geno in charge of now? Making sure there is Bubble gum and seeds available for the players? That might still be to complicated for him......I'd put him in charge of the hot dog vendors.....His physique tends to lead me to believe he could be successful at that.
well not a FA issue. But, geno will no longer be at 3B. he is being replaced by brookens at 3b, with belliard moving to 1b. geno will be relegated to the dugout.
Lamont and Leyland are still on the team......I'm not going to move on till they get the same departure Raburn and Inge got.......We have only gotten rid of two problems and demoted one, but the big problem is still in charge of the team.
Wow. You would think someone could move on - past the Inge, Raburn, Lamont thing. But when you have limited knowledge of issues, I guess you stick with one thing.....forever.

The Hot Stove League is in full swing, and spring training is less than 3 months away - yet some "fans" are already starting on the "hating" thing. It's a sad thing that, today, the word fan includes those who spend all their time hating and bashing.
If Detroit has the money to offer Sanchez 15 mil a yearWho said the Tigers had the money to give Sanchez $15mil a year? They offered him $12mil for 4 years. Lohse is 34 and signing him will cost the Tigers a first round draft pick.
If Detroit has the money to offer Sanchez 15 mil a year then why not try and bring in Kyle Lohse. He may demand a little more but he is a bonefide SP that would solidify their starting rotation as a WS contender with basically the team they have now. Add a closer then and let's play ball.I would probably go in the different direction... Difference between the two is that we saw Sanchez pitch in AL and he was good. Lohse's AL numbers, albeit they were early in his career, are far from stellar. Neither is his recent interleague ERA. He does not K and gives up a lot of groundballs, which spells a >1.3 WHIP with our "speedy and sure-handed" infield. Tigers need a strikeout pitcher. If they can't get Sanchez, I'd rather they get Edwin Jackson and plug him in as No.4 or 5.
Without naming any names, what should a pitcher who could average 17 wins a year for the Tigers be paid?The player who COULD get us 17 wins (Hidoki Kuroda) just got signed for 15. I'd say there's your measuring stick. Now that was a one-year deal. Here's what I would not mind paying for the remaing FAs.
wow.......raburn.....GONE.......ingI feel vindicated. Haha, DD must read these boards. I prefer him to read them because he just blows up my phone during the day. Now that he's down here in Nashville he wants to take me to dinner and discuss possible FAs......I told him "if I could find some time on saturaday I would squeeze him in between 2pm and 3pm" He was estatic to get a hour of my time.
ONE.........delmon young.......GONE.......papa grande.......GONE......geno.....BEN
CHED........hmm, makes you wonder if the Tigers brass reads these boards......after a few years of complaining ALL the tigers garbage is GONE........i know a certain someone will be all negative since he thought all these players should still be starting for the tigers, but looks like someone in the tigers organization has agreed with "internet wanna be managers".......would still like to see peralta gone. never liked him in cleveland and have never cared for him on the tigers.
