Prince a Tiger

Prince Fielder has agreed to a nine-year, $214MM deal with the Tigers. It’ll offset the loss of V-Mart for 2012.

I don’t know if Prince will DH or play 1B. Miggy Cabrera could move back to 3B, but the Tigers lose out defensively there. Of course, Wilson Betemit just went to the Orioles, and Brandon Inge hit only .197 last year. (Update: Prince plays 1B, Cabrera to 3B, DH or RF).

Which reminds me of yet another DH candidate still out there… Magglio. (There are lots of them, aren’t there?). You wonder how low some of them will drop in their salary demands.

More to come.

Oh yeah,…. like father (Cecil) like son. I still remember Cecil hitting balls over the old Tiger Stadium roof.

Francisco Cordero goes to Toronto. He’ll be 37 in May, has 327 career saves, and was 5-3, 2.45, 37 saves for the Reds in 2011.
