Architect of the franchise, Dave Dombrowski was signed to a four year extension today, keeping him contractually bound to the Tigers until 2011. Also this should dispel any rumors that he would leave Detroit to join pal Jim Hendry in his hometown of Chicago. Sorry Cubs fans. This ensures that the next signing will continue to be good news for the Tigers.
Also congratulations to the Gold Glove winning battery of Pudge and Kenny Rogers. It was Pudge's 12th, most by any catcher in Major League history. It is Rogers' third in a row, and his fifth overall. And no, there wasn't any pine tar on the glove.
Hopefully this is the start of many positive reports for this Tigers' off-season.
