Most baseball pundits believe the Detroit Tigers paid too much for Anibal Sanchez. But they also believe that was the price they had to make if they were serious about winning now. Sanchez agreed to a 5-year, $80-million contract with Detroit on Friday, equaling $16 million per season. His career numbers aren't exactly stellar -- 48-51 with a 3.75 ERA -- but the right-hander's value skyrocketed after posting a 1.77 ERA in three postseason starts and a 2.43 ERA in the month of September for the Tigers.
