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.
