Victor Martinez says return to Detroit was his first choice
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez said returned to Detroit was always his first choice, according to mlive.com.

Martinez reportedly pulled general manager Dave Dombrowski aside late in the season to express his desire to remain a Tiger. Dombrowski confirmed the two sides had the conversation, but said he wanted to wait and see how the season concluded before negotiating a deal. 

Owner Mike Ilitch also felt strongly about retaining Martinez. Ilitch told Martinez, "Victor, you had a fantastic year. You displayed great sportsmanship, you never seem to lose your cool and I'm going to take care of you next year."

Martinez brushed off questions about how many other teams attempted to sign him during his press conference. He said he was "just happy to finish my career here in Detroit."
