Will they regret it in 5 years? Maybe
Will they regret it in 5 years if they win a WS? Not likely.
Eh, they would have had him the next 2 years no matter what. Probably the worst thing that could happen for us is that he rakes this year, still rakes in 2015, but shows a slight decline, and they trade him mid-2015 for a big group of good, young players that make them divisional favorites for the next 10 years.
At least now we know that when he does decline, he will be doing it with the Tigers while getting paid $30M/yr.
