Had to come AL :facepalm:

Steady as the she goes, Mr. Anthopoulos...steady as she goes

BertCorbeau 01-24-2012 02:27 PM

Scott Boras does it again.

You have to be crazy to think he's worth the contract he just received. AA gets out of stupid deals, he doesn't make them.

Kamal007 01-24-2012 02:31 PM

lol he got 9 years lol

mooseOAK* 01-24-2012 02:31 PM

Hopefully Type 2 diabetes doesn't set in before 9 years.

MoreMogilny 01-24-2012 02:34 PM

Stickied, carry on.

NeilYoung 01-24-2012 02:35 PM

If anyone wishes the Jays gave Fielder that your 100% completely insane.

Jaysfanatic* 01-24-2012 02:37 PM

Mr. Illitch is going to need a lot of Little Caesar's every post game for Prince and Cabby.

I can't even begin to imagine how much money he has.

What a joke. Rip-off. MLB needs a cap. *gripe, *****, moan* et all.

Swervin81 01-24-2012 02:45 PM

This means that Miggy is going back to 3B when V-Mart is back.

Shimso 01-24-2012 02:48 PM

Wow....9/214 is nuts.

BertCorbeau 01-24-2012 02:49 PM

Don't the Tigers know they can't have more than 1 DH in their line-up? :sarcasm:

ROFL. Can you imagine that tub of lard playing 3B?

Macoun4life 01-24-2012 02:49 PM

Tigers have the best team in a extremely weak Central. Not out of the question that they finish with the best record in baseball this upcoming year! Verlander, Cabrera and Prince...THAT IS LETHAL!

Can you imagine the Jays making the playoffs...

:badidea::whaaa?::loony:

That's some contract.

Yes. I can. Any team can look dangerous on paper. You still have to play the games. The Jays will get there soon enough.

Can you imagine making a contribution to the discussion. Guess not.

Didn't see this posted anywhere. Lincecum signs a 2 yr 40.5mil deal. Sounds like he wants to hit free agency depending on the team's outlook at that time.

ForzaZuffa 01-24-2012 02:53 PM

Scott Boras is the best agent in the world in any venture, any sport. This is now confirmed. As much as I want Rogers to spend, I don't want them locked into a 9 year contract for over 20/yr AAV for a fat dude

lmao, that would be hilarious and that would make Detroit with the worst in-field defense. Could actually be one of the worst defensive clubs as a whole because they have Young, Fielder, Cabrera, Boesch, Peralta... yikes.

ryno23 01-24-2012 02:56 PM

At a glance 9 years 219 is crazy money but lets see how the deal was structured before everyone goes batty on it.

What if the Tigers paid him $35 a year for the next 5 years which takes him to 32 years old and he performs just like he has done up to now which is not a stretch. Then the last 4 years are worth 44 million so that would be $11 a year and not bad even if he slips a bit in productions easy to get rid of $44 million in today's mlb.

Who knows if there is an opt out clause for the team at a certain point or vesting options.

Let's see the full deal before calling it atrocious which is a high possibility but I think Fielder will be worth it right up to his 35th birthday and then you will see a decline.

No matter what his stats are he could go .300 25 hr and 110 Rbi's and people will think its a bad contract.

Nasty Nazem 01-24-2012 02:59 PM

AA should go into ninja mode and trade for Cabrera. Bad ass fit with a solid contract that takes up his prime years.

Jaysfanatic* 01-24-2012 03:01 PM

Some feel he might have an opt out clause in there. Could be as soon as a year or two.
