Tigers Sign Marcus Thames to One Year Deal

The Tigers signed Marcus Thames to a one year, $1.125 million deal today and that gives the Tigers with an inexpensive homerun hitter coming off the bench.  I like the idea of Jacque Jones/Marcus Thames platoon because it plays to both players’ strengths.  There really wasn’t much urgency to sign Thames to longer term deal because he’s only eligible for arbitration in 2009 and 2010.

That leaves Miguel Cabrera and Bobby Seay as the lone arbitration eligible players to sign.  My bet is, Cabrera gets a five year deal and he becomes a cornerstone for this team for a long time.
