Tigers sign Joaquin Benoit to 3 yr/16.5 million contract.
So it begins. If he's 80 - 85% of what he was last year that's a good signing. If he's what he was last year then it's a great signing, he was rock solid here in Tampa. Any word on the Tigers signing Carl Crawford as well? Rays Index has said all along that it was the Tigers or Angels(no surprise) with the Tigers being the favorites.
Excellent, I'm surprised we were able to get anything for him. We had a crowded outfield and Raj never regained the form he showed the 2nd half of '09. He just stopped taking walks, almost reverted back to his '08 form. For Toronto fans, he has good range in the OF but makes the occasional boneheaded play. Should be good for a defensive replacement and pinch runner (really fun to watch him tear around the bases, he'll be a fan fav because of it).
