The Dodger deal works out to 4 years around $105 million or 7 years and $165 million. So the Tigers deal is either an extra 5 years/$110 million or 2 years/$50 million on top of the Dodgers offers. Guess he figured he likely couldn't do better than that or it wasn't worth the risk.

    Plus signing with the Tigers gives him the option to DH. I'm sure that couldn't hurt.

    In the end, the guaranteed money probably was just too hard to pass up.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
