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!
On this episode of the Yanks Go Yard Radio Show, brought to you by KNODA.com, host and senior staff writer Ricky Keeler recaps the Yankees first series win of the 2015 season against the Tampa Bay Rays.

As of Saturday, the Tigers have the best record in baseball at 9-2. What aspect of the Tigers game has impressed Matt the most? They will also breakdown the pitching matchups, give you your hitters to watch on both teams, and discuss the great start for Miguel Cabrera.
Plus, how has Shane Greene done in his first three starts with Detroit and is the Tigers bullpen better without Joe Nathan?
