Prince is a Tiger

Just a quick post...

Prince Fielder is going to sign with the Tigers.

Contract, 9 years and $214 million.

Scott Boras is a genius.

Prince in a Cubs uniform?  Not a chance.

In the end, even though this contract will become a nightmare for Tigers in about 5 years, I still think this is a great signing for them.  With the their lineup and pitching, the Tigers will likely be the favorites to win the AL Central for the next 4 years.  That gives them plenty of chances to win it all.  That will make this contract worth it.

For the Cubs, they may not have added anything significant pieces this off-season, but the subtraction of Fielder and Pujols in the NL Central is a very good thing.

So, Prince is a Tiger...
