    Re: Miguel Cabrera 10 year deal with tigers $300M

    Did he really get that much?

    What a brutal deal for the Tigers, going to cripple them as a franchise. Already had to trade Fister, wont be able to sign Scherzer. In two-three years when miggy starts breaking down this is going to look awful just like the Pujols and A Rod deals

    Only guy id give this type of contract to is Trout since he is already worth that type of money and actually will be for another ten years. Giving this to a guy over 30 is brutal and is just paying him for previous accomplishments

    Hell id give this deal to Harper before Miggy. Spend money on guys with their primes in front of them, not behind them

      When you lose a playoff series because of lack of offensive production then no member of your team should be eligible to sign for that amount.

      Damn

        They had him under contract for two more years. This extension makes no sense.

          Where does Detroit get this money ? There is no way they can be operating in the black in that market. Must have a passionate owner willing to go deep into his own pockets.

              They do. Mike Ilitch, of Little Caesar's fortune.

                seems pretty crazy to handicap your team vs the salary cap in the later years of this contract

                        These 10 year deals never work out well for the club. His stats are awesome, but I'd not want to go over 5 years/ 150MM. He is kind of a big guy that likely wont age well past 35. Possible primary DH in a few years, lot of money for a guy not too great with a glove.

                            Tough call HT: He certainly is deserving of a big payday like everybody else, but I doubt the second half of that contract looks good in a few ( 3-5) years from now ? Not too many guys are elite after 35 and he seems to 30.

                            Can't blame the players for signing these contracts. If I were the player I'd not seek every last dollar for an ego trip, I'd rather play where I wanted to live, Like say SD instead of Detroit.Play my best and if the team sucks it ain't my fault if I produce. I really would put the ring thing down the list, as long as I gave everything I had on the field trying and secured the financial stuff well enough first. I doubt many players care about being champions .

                              I thought Yankees had a good sign in Texiera

                              he wasnt too old, plays gold glove defense and seemed a natural fit to the short RF fence. but he has stopped hitting much

                              many horrid contracts teams would like to be rid of Carl Crawford, Pujols, Josh Hamilton just three off top of head. this one seems destined for that territory

                                funny thing about pujols and hamilton is how bad they went fast

                                seems like once these guys are set to be very very very rich around 30-33 yrs old many of them dont much care anymore about the game

                                    They will regret this contract. The question is when they start regretting it. In 3 years or in 5 years?

                                    What long term big money deal given to a player over 30 has ever worked out?

                                      This guy hasn't even reached his peak.......

                                      He is a young 30 and will be one of the best hitters for at least the next 5 years and maybe a lot longer as he could play the DH after 5 years.

                                      Who in the world else are they going to sign that is as good as him? There is no one and he deserves every penny.

                                      The owner obviously loves him and thinks he is worth it..... And so do I ... There's nobody close to his worth in baseball........

                                      Good for him...........

                                        This deal does seems a bit odd, but with all these long-term, big-money copntracts being thrown around lately, the baseball execs must see something on the horizon (new collective bargaining agreement?) that makes them think salaries will soon explode even higher than they are in the present-tense.

                                        Regarding Cabrera, he's in his prime at the current moment (the last 2 years, anyway), and if his health holds up then he'll be among the top hitters in baseball for probably several more years. He has plenty of room for regression before he eventually drops out of the upper-echelon.

                                        I wouldn't sign him to this kind of deal (especially when he's still under contract for the next couple of years), but it's probably a good bit safer than the Pujols and Josh Hamilton deals of recent years.

                                            He turns 31 next month. Players don't get better at that age.

                                            He's past his peak.

                                              How is a guy whose been up since 20, and a guy who is overweight as well as once having a drinking problem, a young 30?

                                              Trout is worth more money than Cabrera as well. So saying no one is close is crazy.

                                                Baseball has great local market ratings. Everyone is signing 1-3 billion dollar tv contracts. That's where all this money is coming from.

                                                    The dude is getting better .............

                                                    Why do you people constantly ignore reality?

                                                    Nobody is close to this guy..... Even Pujols wasn't this good EVER!

                                                    This guy is not slowing down ......

                                                    The guy has earned this contract whether you guys like it or not.....

                                                    The money is there ... He's the One I would give it too ......

                                                    I also said the Pujols and Hamilton contracts were foolish and for good reason..........

                                                    This one is not!

                                                      Mike Trout is obviously close to him in terms of value, and many would argue he's more valuable. Trout also much younger, and has many more peak years left.

                                                      Trout more deserving of a contract this large and you are saying no one is close to as deserving. Puzzling stuff.

                                                        This contract is very foolish. It's even worse than the others because they had him under contract for two more years anyway.

                                                            Regarding Cabrera, he's in his prime at the current moment (the last 2 years, anyway), and if his health holds up then he'll be among the top hitters in baseball for probably several more years. He has plenty of room for regression before he eventually drops out of the upper-echelon.

                                                            I wouldn't sign him to this kind of deal (especially when he's still under contract for the next couple of years), but it's probably a good bit safer than the Pujols and Josh Hamilton deals of recent years.
                                                            salaries cant go higher or fans wont be able to attend games. The Yanks had a lot of empty seats last year for every game. Regular people get poorer every year, you can't spend several hundred dollars to take your family to the ballgame unless you make big money these days.

                                                                      There was no rush to get a deal done - Tigers had him signed thru next season. Now they're stuck with a player in decline and the extension hasn't even kicked in yet.

                                                                        other moronic deals were given to guys who were actually free agents.

                                                                        In this case, the Tigers had a player at the beginning of his decline with TWO YEARS LEFT ON THE DEAL. They chose to give him a monster contract for years when he probably will miss a lot of games, and even when he plays, won't be at his peak.

                                                                          What made it even worse was they also gave Victor Martinez a long contract.

                                                                          The Tigers had two guys who couldn't play defense or run, and in fact every time they jogged, they were at risk of pulling a muscle, and they decided they needed to sign both to big contracts to keep them until they were 40.

                                                                          The absolute height of stupidity. I can't understand how they thought this was going to work out well.

                                                                          Victor Martinez is making $18 million this season. Miguel Cabrera is making $30 million.

                                                                            Who in the world else are they going to sign that is as good as him? There is no one and he deserves every penny.

                                                                            The owner obviously loves him and thinks he is worth it..... And so do I ... There's nobody close to his worth in baseball........

                                                                            Good for him...........

                                                                              Since 2014, he played 119 games in 2015, 158 in 2016, and 130 in 2017. This year, he has been in 38 games...and he's done.

                                                                              Now he can deal with the kids he had with a mistress who is suing him for $100,000 per month child support, and she is claiming he pays more attention to his 3 kids with his wife than he does with his 2 kids with the mistress.

                                                                                other moronic deals were given to guys who were actually free agents.

                                                                                In this case, the Tigers had a player at the beginning of his decline with TWO YEARS LEFT ON THE DEAL. They chose to give him a monster contract for years when he probably will miss a lot of games, and even when he plays, won't be at his peak.
