After a disappointing early exit from the 2014 postseason, the Detroit Tigers are in a state of flux with their roster construction.

One of the major decisions that GM Dave Dombrowski will have to make this winter will be whether or not to re-sign of 2013 Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, who declined a 6 year/$144 million contract extension prior to the season starting.

Based on that fact alone, the 30 year-old Scherzer will be looking to get paid handsomely.

Since the Tigers traded for left-handed hurler David Price on July 31st, there have been rumblings that Price’s arrival may have spelled the end for Scherzer given the amount of money it would take to retain the services of both pitchers along with Miguel Cabrera‘s and Justin Verlander‘s hefty contracts.

Something has got to give, and that something appears to be Scherzer.

Not to worry though! Max will surely have plenty of suitors for his pitching expertise.
