08:46 AM ET 10.04 | Thanks to Gary Sheffield, Pudge Rodriguez, Magglio Ordonez, Edgar Renteria and Jose Valverde, the Tigers are on the hook for more than $10 million in 2011. Now, toss in an estimated $1 million to $2 million in deferred money for various other players. That gives the Tigers roughly $13 million in deferred payments next year. Of course, there is also some deferred money on next year's payroll -- most notably, $2 million of Carlos Guillen's 2011 salary -- but not too much. So the net result is around $11 million in deferred payments next year.

I think the Tigers have deferred Sheffield money going out until like 2014...

Ugh.

Smooth Double D... Real smooth...

I can't believe how many games we've lost in September & October this season. I'm hopeful of another World Series title but I sure as heck am not going to expect it to be so. Sure we have a good overall ball club but we're not strong enough in the starting pitching category.
C.C. is great, and Andy does a great job in post season but he's a little rusty...Huhges is a bit of a question mark this year because of so-so 2nd half and he's not really been tested like the post season will test a guy, and the other two starters won't even make the roster. No doubt we need to do some shopping before next season.

I was going to say. It seemed like a pretty random (and obvious) comment

Especially when $11M gets you one or two good starting players

October 4, 2010  01:06 PM ET

SO, what exactly is this saying?

October 4, 2010  01:28 PM ET

that's what happen when a team sign players to a long term without knowing the out come of the player luck, best way to approach any deal nowdays is to sign any player based on their good talent and skills a two years deal, the team at least will get one good year out of that player and that's a guarantee deal, because the first year the player will play so- so, but the second and final year on the contract it will be played at all speed, as driven as many runs, hitting up to forthy homeruns, and god knows what else this player could do, just remember every player will do the very best workout at that team, because as we know he will become free agent and their actions speak louder!

thankfully actual active players coming off the payroll this winter includes over $60 million, Bondo $12, Willis $10, Robertson $7, Inge $6, Maggs $18, Damon $7.... lot of $$$ to re-tool the roster.

It's gonna be a very busy hot stove season for Detroit.

Im pretty excited actually- we are bringing back Inge at prolly 2 years and Peralta is being renegotiated at lower and prolly 2 years.

Lotta youth on this club- I hope we can snag a free agent or two... and well... RELEASE CARLOS GUILLEN

I'm in favor of dumping all the veterans except for Verlander and Miggy, and starting from scratch with some solid free agents and the promising youth on deck.

The Detroit Tigers do seem to have alot of young talent availible to build around. Think Peralta will end-up playing a really big part in the Tigers re-building process for success. With a few added breaks in Free Agency Detroit might only be a few years out from contending for a playoff spot.

There will be plenty of dollars left for the Tigers to bid for Yu Darvish
