In Michigan Struggles
MONEY BALL: In Detroit, Lynn Henning wrote with the Tigers required to finalize their 25-man roster next week, Ilitch "should decree that roster decisions in no way be influenced by money." Ilitch "can acknowledge that it was a mistake for" Tigers President, CEO & GM Dave Dombrowski to extend the contracts of Ps Nate Robertson and Dontrelle Willis, but "what matters is not the $39[M] Ilitch owes two pitchers for the next two seasons. What matters is winning." Ilitch "must emphasize that neither money, nor the extensions, nor Dombrowski's desire to yet make two contracts look valid, can influence for one moment the team's decisions" (DETROIT NEWS, 3/26).
