    Tigers sign Polanco to 4-year extension

    Polanco signs extension

    This is insane. Polanco is a player you sign for maybe two years. He's 29, by the time the deal is near the third year, the Tigers will be begging other teams to take him.

    I think he's very solid, but has the weirdest shaped head I've ever seen. Anyone ever check out his temples?

    Four years for Placido Polanco? Has the world gone mad or just Detroit?

    Sounds stupid on the face of it. Maybe less so depending on what the dollars are.

    I dont see whats so unreasonable about this contract? Its about 4 million a year for a very versatile player that can hit more than his weight. So its not a terrible contract to move if necessary.

    I'll say it here now..

    The Tigers will never win a world series in that stadium.

    Not that I blame the stadium, but it's going to be about 40 years

    i don't kno if i'd sign him to a four year deal but they need to extend him he can play every position in the infield if he has to and is a very versatile guy at the plate

    The very same could be said about the Reds in GAB.

    Every year, there are players available on the waiver wire for the league minimum who can give you offensively and defensively just a notch below Polanco.

    WHERE'S PRINCETON??? hELLO, pRINCETON.

    Remember the thread where I said Dombrowski had lost it... you said the great ones never lose it?

    Well...

    He's lost it.

    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    DanO dreams of the Carlos Guillen and Kyle Farnsworth acquisitions

    I like Polanco, BTW. That 4th year is stiff, and the money would have been better spent on Farnsworth. But the market is shifting up and Dombrowski's been ahead of that curve often

    a much better criticism of Dombrowski is the rushing of Verlander and the fact that the return on Farnsworth sounds eerily similar to the Reds' nonreturn on Reitsma. But Farnsworth was walking (unlike Reitsma) plus given DD's track record, I won't be surprised to learn that he got a lot more than a Bubba Bong

    I challenge you to name those players. I think Polanco is a VERY valuable commodity.
