Well, it looks like Dombrowski signed Anibel Sanchez for a 5 year hitch at $80M. I'm very curious to see what happens with Porcello now that Sanchez is wrapped up for the foreseeable future.
I thought Sanchez was (imagine Ernie Harwell voice here) long gone. Looks like more evidence to support the theory that Mike Ilitch is in "win now" mode. I wonder if this is a deal the Tigers will regret at their leisure - Sanchez is below .500 in W/L for his career, although sabremetricians will quickly point out there are better measures of a pitcher's worth than W-L. In any event, Ilitch gets a lot of credit for investing in his club and giving Dombrowski the ability to do deals like this.
