Miguel Cabrera is Filthy Rich

Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers have reached a ginormous agreement to keep the tough-slugging third baseman in Motown through 2015.

We're talking eight years, $152 million, including the $11.3 million he was already going to rake in for 2008. All he needs to do is pass his physical Monday.

As one of the top young players in the game, Cabrera will receive the richest deal in Tigers history, not to mention the fourth highest contract in the history of the game, behind Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Manny Ramirez, respectively.

Traded along with Dontrelle Willis this offseason by the Florida Marlins for a handful of young prospects, the 24-year-old Cabrera joins a hardcore Detroit lineup that includes Carlos Guillen, Magglio Ordonez, Gary Sheffield, Edgar Renteria, Ivan Rodriguez, Placido Polanco, and Curtis Granderson.

Yeah, even their bench is kinda' scary.

The Tigers have a great thing going - on paper. Their rotation is pretty weak sauce too. But they've done a good job with signing their young players to heavy deals.

It will be interesting to see how it pans out. I hope they can keep things moving well. We all know money can't buy a winning team (Hello - NYY?) but it sure can't hurt.

They are definitely a very PRETTY team at the moment though.
