9 years 214 mil, Bob. No opt out clause, either. He's here for the long haul.

RE: O/T Prince Fielder to Tigers
Amazing signing !

What do you guys think happens to the infield now ? Split DH time with prince and miggy ? miggy back to third ?

What about when Victor gets back ?

So many scenarios that could play out, and this puts the tigers right in the WS talk for next year.

Ilitch is getting up there, and this is an obvious win at all costs move.

Cabrera spoke with espn deportes and said he will move back to 3rd. Hopefully that gets him to lose some weight. Could be a very effective third baseman if he sheds 25-30 pounds. It shouldn't be that hard for a professional athlete to do.

Sam, that's a lot of weight. I wouldn't want him to lose power.

RE: O/T Prince Fielder to Tigers
He's overweight, though. I'd say he's about 260 right now, so losing 25-30 lbs would put him at, say, 235 at the most. That's enough bulk to maintain power. He was that powerful of a hitter back in Florida when he was slender. He'll never be thin like that again, but he can at least be "big and fit" now with some hard work.

Wow.

I still wonder if VMart will be back late in the season?

Could Ilitch become an EMU fan and drop a few millions on our football program? 03-melodramatic

Ilitch is 83, he ain't waiting around, he wants to win now! Considering Domino's started right across the campus, maybe THEY could drop a few million...
