Tigers' Cabrera gets long-term deal

Posted: Sunday March 23, 2008 1:42PM; Updated: Sunday March 23, 2008 2:34PM

 The Tigers have agreed to terms with superstar third baseman Miguel Cabrera to a seven-year extension for $20 million a year, [sign in to see URL] has confirmed.

The new agreement to keep Cabrera a Tiger through 2015 will bring their total commitment to Cabrera to $152 million, which includes the $11.3 million he was already set to make in 2008.

The deal is believed to be contingent only on a physical, which is expected to be a formality.

Cabrera's new contract, whether it's counted as a $140 million extension or $152 million in total dollars, would rank as the fifth highest in baseball history, behind Alex Rodriguez's deal ($252 million and $275 million), Derek Jeter ($189 million) deal and Manny Ramirez ($160 million).

Cabrera was acquired this winter from Florida by the Tigers, along with pitcher Dontrelle Willis, for six young players.

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.
