    Miggy MVP. Caps off a truly great season for him and partially for the team. Jackson getting on base and Fielder protecting him were pretty helpful in his accomplishment.

    It's not out of the question to think that he might have a shot at the double triple crown next year with Jackson and Hunter in front of him and VMart and Fielder behind him.

    Injury avoidance will be big next year.

    In this division 1st place should be automatic. Every team should be a little better.
    Perhaps Miggy should protect Prince.

    Nashville, Tenn. — Boy, we all have different definitions of what's insulting.
    According to a report from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Tigers made an offer to starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez earlier this offseason — to the tune of four years, $48 million.
    And also according to Heyman, Sanchez's representatives responded by saying that would insult the 28-year-old right-hander.
    Never mind that Sanchez has a sub-.500 career record (48-51), no Cy Youngs or All-Star appearances to his credit, and has only made $14 million in his career.
    Yet, a $12 million annual salary was a slap in the face?
    Look, Sanchez is going to get a good payday, deservedly so, and nobody thought it'd take just $48 million to get him to sign on the dotted line. He really strengthened his resume down the stretch with the Tigers, with a 2.15 ERA from Aug. 22 through the end of the regular season, then three good postseason starts.
    Essentially, in that span, Sanchez went from being a solid free-agent option to the second-best starter available, behind Zack Greinke.
    So Sanchez's people have sent out the word that he wants a six-year deal[​IMG] in the $90 million range. (Justin Verlander, by the way, is in the middle of a five-year, $80 million deal.)
    And at that price, the Tigers, most definitely, will say "thanks, but no thanks.

    I certainly hope so. That is bizarrely high for someone who played well for half a season. Maybe we could do a sign-and-trade and fleece some other team.

    Sanchez and Stuckey must have the same agent.

    You want Dombrowski managing the Pistons, or JD with the Tigers?

    If Joe ran the Tigers, Brandon Inge would still be playing 3B and making $8.5 mil per year.
    Agents must love Joe Dumars because of the fact that he saves them a lot of time and hassle at the negotiating table.

    Tayshaun Prince would be the shortstop. He's the rug that ties Joe's room together.

    Tay would absolutely be dead last in the AL in put-outs among shortstops.
    On each ground ball, he would have to toss in 2 or 3 pump-fakes prior to throwing the ball to Fielder at 1st base.

    I picture many a double play opportunity ruined by Tay taking a ground ball out of the dirt and simply palming the baseball for several seconds before making the play.

    This would be something that Leyland would have to work on with him.

    He'd be one of the best ever in defending pickle rundowns.

    He would only pump-fake it if going to home, with his lenght he could just hand it to Fielder, ball still in the glove.

    Stuckey's career would involve a lot of these:

    Thing is, Rodney would be running the bases with his head down so it's pretty darn likely that he'd take out the center fielder by mistake.

    Imagine Stuckey playing Centerfield. There's a fly ball to the gap and you're the left fielder.
    You call for it, but here comes Stuckey. Do you still try to catch it?
