    Bless You Boys Podcast 105: Miguel Cabrera is a very rich man

    in Sports

    In an episode all about the Benjamins, Al and Hookslide cover the fallout from the Tigers' historic contract extension with Miguel Cabrera, Max Scherzer's contract negotiations ending in futility, the acquisition of ancient shortstop Alex Gonzalez and Forbes estimating the team's worth at $680 million.


    Bless You Boys Podcast 105 has a running time of 1:03 and features Al Beaton and HookSlide. Kurt Mensching will be back next week.


    Topics:
    Tigers, Cabrera formally announce 8-year extension, commit to 10-years and $292 million overall.
    MLB execs disgusted over Miguel Cabrera extension.
    Fans of advanced metrics are calling the Cabrera extension the worst contract ever. What a surprise!
    But is it really that crazy of a contract in retrospect? $30 million may look like chump change in ten years.
    Tigers were between a rock and a hard place. Let Cabrera walk in free agency, the fans get upset. Sign the best hiotter in the game to a contract locking him up for the remainder of his career, the fans get upset.
    Tigers' GM Dave Dombrowski contended it's better to extend a pending free agent early on the process, believing a player is more likely to leave the longer you wait.
    The Tigers may not be all that worried about the long-term ramifications of a contract extension thanks to the ridiculous amount of TV money MLB teams earn.
    Max Scherzer and the Tigers cease contract negotiations.
    Scherzer's agent Scott Boras claims it was the Tigers who rejected a deal.
    Tyler Collins makes the team as a left fielder.
    Tigers obtain shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Orioles for utility man Steve Lombardozzi.
    Forbes values Tigers at $680 million, 15th overall in MLB. Anyone else think that figure sounds low?
    Doug Fister will start the season on the DL. The Tigers win the trade!

    UN Representative Salasaca Aymara National President Nicolas "Miguel" Chango

    in Religion

    Salasaca Aymara Elder Nicolas Chango


    Past Salasaca National President Nicolas "Miguel" Chango at the United Nations--Indigenous Leader from Ecuador

    By Steve Grove


    June 16, 2004


    In one way or another, Nicholas Chango has been preparing for leadership since the day he was born. The elders of his tribe in Ecuador, the Salasaca, predicted that Chango would be a great leader, and commemorated his birth with many ceremonies. From an early age, Chango says, they put him through an intense training program that sometimes lasted 15 hours a day.


    Brought to a cornfield in the early hours of the morning, Chango was taught to listen to nature and pray to the sun.


    "[The elders] helped me to understand that all the land is interconnected, " Chango remembers. Later, these elders (called yachaj) wanted Chango to learn how to represent the Salasaca in Ecuadorian society. So they sent him to high school outside of the village.


    There, Chango came into contact with non-indigenous Ecuadorians and a society that has a long history of oppression of indigenous peoples. Spanish conquistadors came to Equador in 1534, taking control of the land and weakening the indigenous population with disease. Many Salasacan women were reportedly used as forced laborers. In the 21st century, conflicts between the groups have continued, as indigenous groups wrestle with the mestizo population for a voice in the country’s tenuous democracy.

    TDSS 5/3/15: Tigers/Royals Postgame/Recap, Tigers/White Sox Preview

    in Sports

    The Tigers pick up a 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium to split the series and reclaim first place in the American League Central Division over KC by a half game. Anibal Sanchez picked up the win but not before the 7th and 8th innings made the game very interesting, and Joakim Soria picked up his 10th save out of his 10th save opportunity. Miguel Cabrera (2-run home run) and Alex Avila drove in 5 of the 6 runs scored for the Tigers, and the other run was scored on an error.


    I preview the Tigers/White Sox series at U.S. Cellular Field in Chiago.
