The Tigers have been in discussions with Miguel Cabrera’s agent since they acquired him in a trade with the Florida Marlins.  Both sides wanted a long term deal in place before the season started.  Well the deal got done over the weekend and it is historic.  Not only is the 8 year 153.3 million the largest contract in Tiger’s history, it’s also the fouth largest in MLB history. 

This is a good move by Mike Illich and company because it locks up one of the brightest young stars in the game.  Cabrera is only 24 and hasn’t even peaked yet.  While his power numbers might take a hit(thank Comerica Park for being so fucking big), his OBP and clutch hitting will still be there.  It must be nice to have an owner that will do everything in his power to win.  The season is only a week away boys…here’s to baseball season!

    The last time the Tigers played the Cubs we swept them, and I don’t think any of the games were even close, granted you guys are better now, but so are we.
