Deal worth up to $75 million, whatever that means.

Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal are now saying the deal is not yet official and the Tigers are still very much in the mix.

They blew the deal for Dempster to Atlanta. They blew the deal with Los Angeles for Haren. Who the **** in their front office loves being "an anonymous source" so much that they can't keep their ****ing mouths shut?

Honestly? I suspect it's Theo.

Bob Nightengale is saying that the Tigers have a chance to match the Cubs 5 year offer. Last offer the Tigers made was 4 years.

I agree. Have to hope that the Tigers do not pull this one out.

LOL.

The best part of this is watching Kaplan ejaculate all over himself on Twitter and then have to back-pedal.

I'm pretty sure Crane Kenney is Kaplan's guy.

Kap should probably stop trusting the non-baseball executive.

I don't understand why a team whose GM claims are deeply committed to a full rebuild would want to give a mid-rotation, when healthy, pitcher 15 million per season.

I know he was once a Red Sox product, but it still doesn't make much sense.

Would be a very weird move for the Cubs.

I don't get the love affair for Anibal Sanchez. He has never pitched 200 innings and we are 7 years into his career.

I think he's a pretty good pitcher (his numbers aren't much worse than Greinke's), but as said the concern with him is health. The last 3 seasons have seen him pitch 190+ innings, but we'll see if he can do that going forward (whether in Detroit, Chicago, or elsewhere).

LOL! Only the Cubs would now sign a guy to make ~$45M over the next 3 years and lose 90+ games each of those years. Hopefully this happens and the Tigers are left with Smyly and Porcello in their rotation.

Did I miss the news about Verlander being kidnapped by Martians?
