I read somewhere that he is schedule to make $4 million this season, but will probably make closer to $7 million or $8 million after arbitration.
I would have rather seen the Tigers trade away Rick Porcello.
I know Rick Porcello will only be 25 years old next season, but I think he is only slightly above average.
Are they moving Fister in the hopes of signing a bigger named FA pitcher this off-season? That was a stupid move for them. Fister was relatively cheap compared to what they might pay on the market (15 mil a season) for who is out there.
