    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.

              He kept car ads up in the stadium even though they couldn't afford to pay for them anymore.

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

                    Some of these contracts confuse me.

                        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
