I have been really hoping that the Tigers would use the savings on the Fielder deal to sign a big bat, with my preference being Choo. Today he signed with the Rangers for 7 years and $130M:
I would much rather have the Tigers not signed Nathan and Davis in order to sign Choo (even if they had to go to 7/140), even if they end up re-signing Scherzer.
I can't think of too many extensions for pitchers that worked out. Even Tim Lincecum ended up justifying the Giants decisions to go year to year with him, despire possibly the best ever pre-arb career for a pitcher.
What do y'all think?
