Tigers and Jeremy Bonderman agree on 4 year contract

Postby Dannomyte » Mon Dec 18, 2006 5:15 pm

One of the youngest stars for the Detroit Tigers will be wearing the Old English 'D' for a long time to come. Just a few weeks after extending Brandon Inge's contract for four seasons, the Tigers reached a four-year agreement with starting pitcher Jeremy Bonderman Monday afternoon according to Sports Radio 1130, WDFN.

Financial terms of the contract are not yet available.


I'll post the details and other info when it becomes available.

Tigers pitcher Jeremy Bonderman has signed a four-year contract extension, the team announced Monday.

Financial terms were not announced.

The right-hander is now signed with the Tigers through 2010.

Bonderman was 14-8 with a 4.08 ERA in 34 starts for the Tigers in 2006. He was second in the American League with 202 strikeouts.

"We are thrilled Jeremy Bonderman will remain part of the Tigers organization," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "He is developing into one of the top young pitchers in baseball and we expect him to be a big part of our rotation for years to come."

A good deal.

All I can say is Gil Meche @ $11 million per year for 5 years: Hahaha
Give me Bonderman any day of the week over Meche, Lily, etc. I'll even take Bonderman over Zito, who's going to be making a killing soon.

Bonderman could have gambled that he stayed healthy long enough to be a FA and made a ton more money, but I'm guessing he likes it where he is.

Here are a few quotes that back up your theory that Bondo likes it right where he is.

For his part, Bonderman said he was very involved in the process. The idea of going on the market wasn't all that tempting, he added, if he could get the deal he wanted in Detroit.

"There's always the idea of free agency," he admitted, "but I love the guys here. I love the team. I love everything about playing for the Tigers right now. They're a great organization."


"They gave me a good offer that will make my family comfortable," Bonderman told The Associated Press. "We had a lot of success this year and I get along with all the players and the coaching staff, so this wasn't that hard of a call for me."


You also have to love the confidence Bonderman has in himself and his pitching!

"I just feel like every year I've gotten better,'' said Bonderman, who had a 14-8 record with a 4.08 ERA and 214 innings pitched, then pitched three outstanding games in the postseason. "It's about time that I need to take a big step forward, and put my name up with some of the big ones.

"I don't have any doubt in my mind that I can pitch as well as Johan, or as well as Oswalt.''

I just love this deal. You can tell from those quotes and others that Bonderman is just a normal kid with a family that wants to live comfortably and pitch for a team that he likes. Now if he could just master that change-up.

This was a great deal for the Tigers. Just looking at the other silly signings out there and it wouldn't be hard to imagine the Tigers being able to trade Bonderman if he doesn't develop as they'd like.
