If there were Tigers fans unreasonably expecting Carl Crawford to sign with Detroit, they can start the grieving process. According to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox and Carl Crawford have agreed on a deal.
Source: The Red Sox have a seven-year, $142 million deal done with Carl Crawford.
The good news here is the Tigers don't have to worry about the Red Sox nabbing Ordonez, which was a legitimate threat considering Crawford's inevitable out of sight price tag.
As Ian mentioned earlier, Ordonez is seeking at least a two-year deal worth $20 million, which I don't think is too exorbitant for the Tigers.
