08:16 AM ET 12.18 | During this free agent winter, Anibal Sanchez was going to wind up a very wealthy man, but it appears he could have signed for more. Sanchez's agent, Gene Mato, said that Sanchez left money on the table at the winter meetings, when an unnamed team offered him a contract, but that Sanchez didn't want to make his decision on money, but rather comfortability. "Fortunately, he had a night to sleep on it," Mato said of the decision between the Tigers and Chicago Cubs, who reportedly offered a five-year, $75 million contract on Thursday. "The next morning, he called me early in the morning and said, 'Listen, I want to be a Tiger.' It was pretty clear from the beginning, to me, that Anibal really wanted to be a Tiger."
