    MLBTradeRumors' projectsion are running well under actual results so far for the Tigers... between 5% and 18% too low.

    It's basically everyone, part of it is always some of the oversized contracts we see every offseason that seem so out of whack.

    Matt Wieters - $4.6MM
    Signed for $5.5M
    Hunter Pence - $13.8MM
    Signed for $13.8M Gasssp
    Kendrys Morales - $4.8MM
    Signed for $5.25M

    Is it really surprising that the Tigers' players are signing for a little more, given that DD doesn't like to take players to arbitration? I would certainly think that the agents would know this and exploit it, while MLBTR overlooks it.

    MLBTR projection is almost always under what the Tigers sign their arb eligible players for. The reason is that their projections is based off of their fair value in comparison to every other player.

    They fail to account for the fact that the Tigers pride themselves on not going to arbitration and are willing to pay a little extra to do so.

    Tigers avoid arbitration with Boesch ($2.3M) and Coke ($1.85M).

    I never stood why more teams and players don't do this. Here are two numbers split the difference. Everybody gets a bit less/more than they wanted but in the end the two sides don't have to say bad things about one another. No fuss no muss.

    I'm not sure what you mean, because most team do this. The number of players that end up going to arbitration each year is pretty small. Though, as I have pointed out in the past, over a period of many years the arbitration system has leaned in management's favor. So I'm not sure why more organizations don't take their players to arbitration

    I'm glad Scherzer is resolved now.

    Because it's a dirty process that nobody enjoys. The million bucks they might save isn't worth it.

    I mean i don't understand why 1 players goes to arbitration. I can't imagine its fun for a player to hear that they don't deserve X dollars because they gave up Y number of hits or only hit Z. Not sure i'd sign an extension when my boss just pointed out all my flaws to save a few bucks.

    There are some teams the prefer to go through the arbitration process cause of what you described. But, i don't understand that thinking

    You also can't compromise. At least, the way it used to be. They would either give the player what he wanted or give him the team offer. Talking down your player really isn't in the best interest of the team, probably why DD doesn't do it.

    I'm glad Max was signed. But I really thought they were going to announce a long-term deal for him.
