Tigers Exercise Pudge's $13MM Option

According to Baseball Digest Daily, the Tigers have picked up Ivan Rodriguez's $13MM option for 2008.  It was a $10MM decision for the Tigers given the $3MM buyout price.  The Detroit Tiger Weblog is OK with the decision, given the lack of better alternatives. 

By my count, the Tigers have roughly $83MM on the books plus maybe another $6MM for those making near the minimum.  Ballpark it at $90MM, which is $5MM below their Opening Day '07 mark.  The Tigers have some holes to fill, but it wouldn't be surprised to see payroll rise past $100MM.  The Tigers passed the 3MM attendance mark this year for the first time ever.
