No, I'm just happy that 1/2 of the 130 starts that he's not on the mound will be left to Smyly and Porcello.

It's the price for pitching in modern baseball. ****, the Red Sox DFA'd Zach Stewart and they were able to find a team to give them something for him.

Given this market, $15 million per season for Anibal Sanchez does not seem so bad to me.

Not sure about 5 years, but any kind of pitching for them is welcomed.

I don't know how the Cubs keep jumping the gun on so-called deals, but they better change something to avoid being a laughingstock in another area.

Tigers have matched the offer and now the Cubs bumped it way up to 77.5 million.... twitter peeps suggest he'll take the Tigers offer.

$16 Million a year for a guy who was 9-13 a year ago, has won double figures twice in his career (high of 13) and is 48-51 lifetime. I hope this one REALLY backfires for Detroit. Just because he pitched well for a short time (in the playoffs) last year, he gets this kind of payoff. Too bad Phill Humber didn't finish up strong- maybe the Tiggers would have given him the bank!

This is getting pretty funny. I wouldn't believe them if they leaked a story about hiring a beer vendor for the Outfield Terrace section.

As long as Ilitch is alive he'll spend whatever he needs to spend to win a World Series.

I think you're right, Lip. It will be interesting to see what happens after Mr. Ilitch passes and the Tigers still are paying out on all these big contracts.

Really surprised the injury-prone Sanchez got five years, but hey, the market for starting pitching is pretty thin this year. Sanchez was probably the best remaining guy out there after Greinke signed.

The Tigers are obviously in win now mode. I think three or four years down the road this contract is going to be an albatross for them, but I doubt they'll care too much if they win the World Series in 2013.

Sanchez would have made no sense for the Cubs at those years and dollars. Don't know what they were thinking. Probably all they accomplished was giving Sanchez a little more leverage to extract more $$$$ from the Tigers.

I know he was once a Red Sox product, but it still doesn't make much sense.
Contraire, they showed on TV that he has nearly the same splits as the overrated Zack Greinke. I think he is underrated personally.
