And Mike Illitch proves once again why he's the best owner in sports (cue Lions "fans" crying about why Ford can't fire Schwartz and pay that much money to get Jon Gruden to coach them). Sanchez stays with the Tigers with a 5 year, $80 million deal. They overpaid, but they need him.
I agree that we overpaided him... hopefully the Sanchez that pitched the last 2 months of the 2012 season shows up all of 2013 and more. Gotta wonder now though... do we move Drew or Rick to the pen? Could work out well if Fister or Scherzer get injured early again. I really don't see them needing any other players at this point as Jhonny is likely staying the SS. I'm hopeful that the Tigers actually perform this year
