The baseball world is holding its collective breath as Max Scherzer decides his future. Detroit Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski is over it.
"I would say no, probably not," Dombrowski said about bringing back Scherzer. "We've been in a situation where we're pretty well set with our starting pitching. We've got five starters we're comfortable (with). I guess you never tell what happens, but we're not in any type of active pursuit of any other pitching right now."
Scherzer turned down a six-year, $144-million extension from the Tigers last spring, and is reportedly seeking a deal in the $200-million range this winter. Scherzer's agent, Scott Boras, is notorious for waiting deep into the winter in order to maximize value for his clients.
Scherzer, 30, has compiled a 91-50 record with a 3.58 ERA over seven seasons and was the American League Cy Young Award winner in 2013.
The New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals are believed to be the front-runners for Scherzer's services.
I really hope the Yankees don't blow all this money on another pitcher who will suck in 3 years, especially when we still desperately need offense.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
