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.

To understand Felixx, one must know that he marches to the beat of his own rhythmic drum. Groomed from an early age to be a southern gentleman, the Monroe, Georgia-native has mastered the art of distinction. An impressive hybrid of sophistication and warmth, Felixx’s disposition parallels his approach to music as well. A classically trained singer with influential energy from Mozart, John Mayer, Calvin Richardson, Prince, Justin Timberlake and Miguel, the R&B crooner is one of the few artists today to make records incorporating live instrumentation and does so with convincing passion. His moniker, taken from his birth name Felix Thompson with the addition of an “x,” refers to his “Clark Kent” ability to effortlessly transition from one genre to another while remaining GQ smooth.
Felixx’s self-titled debut EP features the lead single he co-wrote, “Applause.” The instrument-laden track, along with its soulful, brilliant harmonies and thick melodies, was inspired by a relationship. Other standout records include the Hip-Hop flavored “Life of the Party,” while “Give It To Me” is a slick, funky and sexy throwback-flavored offering that flirts on the border of Pop and Rock. Showing musical diversity and seamlessly tying together R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Pop and Rock, Felixx is contemporary art set to music.
The show starts with Recap from yet another stoppage victory by Gennady Golovkin over Martin Murray on HBO, Espn2 FNF Boxcino Heavyweight Tourney, & ShoBox on Showtime!
