Miguel Cabrera inks big contract

23 03 2008

This may not seem to pertain to the Brew Crew, but Miguel Cabrera signed an eight-year, $153.3M contract with the Detroit Tigers.  This may sound like a huge contract, and it is…but it’s not quite as much as I thought he would make.  The market has been inflating lately, and a young stud like Cabrera should have made A-rod or Jeter money.  He didn’t, however.  In fact, Derek Jeter signed a contract that is about $30M more than Cabrera’s.

What does this mean?  This means that Prince Fielder may not cost quite as much as people think.  Perhaps Mark Attanasio will pony up the cash for him.  This scenario is still incredibly unlikely and I would prefer to see Prince traded in a couple years for a slew of prospects, yet the Brewers may try to make a PR move to appease their fans.  I really did think Miguel would get more than he did.
