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!
HookSlide talks with Rob Rogacki about Miguel Cabrera's surgery, Bruce Rondon's recovery, the Tigers' acquisitions of Alfredo Simon and Yoenis Cespedes, and the loss of Rick Porcello in the starting rotation.

New York Times Best Seller,
distinguished author of "The Four Agreements and mystic Don Miguel Ruiz. Discover
The Four Agreements for Life-Secrets to Success as Don Miguel opens up the vault
to the secrets ancients long ago disovered and how you too can tap into truth.
Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a humble family with ancient traditions in rural Mexico,
the youngest of 13 children. He considers himself very lucky, as this was where he learned
from an early age that everything is possible, if we really want it.
His parents, Don Jose and Dona Sarita, as well as his grandfather, Don Leonardo, all
believed that Miguel would continue their legacy in the centuries old Toltec tradition.
Instead Don Miguel attended medical school, and became a surgeon.
For several years he practiced medicine with his brothers, and he realized that what
needed to be healed was not only the physical brain, but the human mind as well.
A near fatal car accident changed the direction of Don Miguel’s life. He experienced
himself as pure awareness outside of the constraints of his physical body. He realized that
the Toltec wisdom of his family contained all of the tools needed to change the human mind.
Don Miguel promptly returned to his mother to finish his training and he became a Shaman.
Don Miguel moved to the United States to share his wisdom, and spent the next 15 years
exploring ways to heal and change the human mind. The result of this quest was The
Four Agreements®.Join us for an exciting Hour! www.TheBottomLineShowLive.com
On this episode we will review the year that was 2014. Athletes & domestic violence, Bill Cosby, Depression & Robin Williams, Democrats losing the midterms are just a few of the stories that have grabbed the headlines. There's also the secret service failings, Ebola, Boko Haram and the dissapearance of of Malaysian Airline 370.
The biggest stories though have surrounded race and the police. Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Bob McColluch are all names that will go down in history as the catalysts for much unrest in 2014. We'll explore all of this with the crew of #LFCRadio along with our Guest Dr. Tommy Curry.
