    Bobby Higginson is the biggest rip off in baseball. He is the highest paid player on the Tigers at $8.5 million a year. He only starts about half of their games. Right now he is batting .077, 1 RBI and 6 hits on the season. Why on earth would they have given this guy such a huge contract. He had one decent season a few years back (when he was most likely juicing), and now the guy plays like a high school bench warmer.

    He's right Higginson is a waste. I dont even think his "Big Year" was that big, at least not to demand the kind of $ he got. I think the Yankees were about to get him before he stayed w/ the Tigers, right?

    I used to love Detroit... back in the 60's ......... They had some great teams...... THE CATKING !!! :)
  5. I lived in Detroit in the late 60's and lived and died with that team. Signing Bobby Higgenson was more of a PR move. They were losing fans by the thousands and he was a real popular guy up there at the time.
    They're doing a little better now, but they've still got a long way to go. The owner seems to be spending a little money on the team now that the Red Wings are shut down.
