I disagree whole heartedly. I was all for the Tigers letting DY hit his magic number last season and I'm still behind the decision 100%. I personally believe that it would have sent a horrible message to current Tigers players and future free agent targets had the Tigers sat DY for the rest of the season before he got 500 AB.
For example. Consider if you had a job that was performance based or was looking at accepting one. One of the companies you are considering had screwed an employee out of reaching an attainable performance platform just to save a few dollars. Wouldn't that seriously come in to play in your decision making on whether you would re-up or sign at all with the company?? I know for me if there were just as good of options out there I'm going to go somewhere that doesn't have a history of screwing it's "workers"..
I realize $8 million is alot more than a few dollars to you and I but to the Ilitch's it's a drop in the bucket to display some good faith on a player. As it stands now DY looks like the shmuck and the Tigers come out smelling like roses for a change.
