    Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers reached a preliminary agreement Saturday on an eight-year, $153.3 million contract extension, a source close to Cabrera told ESPNdeportes.com on condition of anonymity.
    The All-Star third baseman will undergo a physical on Monday to complete the deal, the source said.

    Wow! This is great news and I'll tell you why: A guy like Cabrera is gonna demand that this team stay competitive throughout his tenure. At least I hope he does.

    Inge is probably putting some shaving cream in Miguel's shoes right now.

    My Toronto Blue Jays just released Reed Johnson. I don't know what the Tigers' depth is like in the outfield, but perhaps with Granderson out for a bit, they may take a look at him?

    I LOVE Reed Johnson. He was my favourite Jay. The guy is just a pure baller. Tough as nails, always gives 100%, never complains, great defensively, solid hitter, good speed.

    He had a back injury early last season and was supposed to be out for the entire year. But he busted his butt to get back early (probably not the best choice in hindsight) and didn't finish the year very strong. But he has looked solid once again this spring.

    I'm very surprised that the Jays released him. The writing was on the wall though when they signed former Jay Shannon Stewart in the off season. I'd rather have Johnson than Stewart any day of the week though.

    I'm sure that someone will give Reed a chance. I hope he does really well - especially against the Jays.

    We have allowed 21 runs more than Cleveland, yet they are only 1 game ahead of us. That's not bad.

    We have to be happy where were sitting... as of 9am this morning after a start that most of us could have never imagined we are only 3 games behind 1st place in the lose column... I am not talking the division I am talking about all of the American League.

    Odd stat, were 0-8 in day games.... vs. 5-2 in night games

    The offense has arrived and if our starters pitch there normal selves we are right back into the thick of things.

    They are not going to score 12 runs in every game. Pitching has to pitch in (pun intended).

    Another good game by Galarraga. 3 hits in 5+ innings. 2-0 for the call-up.

    Jacques Jones plunges further into the abyss with a .178 slugging %.

    All of our hitters, besides JJ, Polanco, and Sheff are coming around. Looks like Shef might be a bust this year. We need Polanco and Granderson to return to previous form and we should be on our way offensively.

    Maybe Tigs should look at Frank Thomas or maybe even that former Giants slugger to fill in the DH spot?
