give him what he wants. Verlander is as good a pitcher as there is in baseball, and they need to do whatever it takes to keep him in Detroit.

2 questions

One

Should the Tigers sign Verlander long term at 9+ million dollars a year, or try to talk him down to around 8-8.5 for one year at a time till 2013?

two

What should their staff look like? Rotation? Middle relief? Long Relief? Who should throw setup?


9 million won't be enough to keep verlander. I think you gotta go somewhere like $15-18 million per year for Verlander. He would get a contract like that in the open market.

But yes, he is a #1 pitcher and should get paid like one.

Verlander has 5 years total 80 mil. Great move by the Tigers.

Wow, haven't been on this site in forever. Fail.

I got the privilege to meet Dan Dickinson this past weekend. Super nice guy! He joked around how he can't wait for spring ball to start because he can get away from his old lady. Anyways, he said he would be really surprised if the Tigers don't get Johnny Damon. Thought I would pass it along. I didn't ask if he had inside info on this, or just a gut feeling. We didn't get too chat long since we were both working when I got to meet him.

I really don't know how to feel about this team. They could finish dead last, or they could win the division....nothing would surprise me.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y
