Mike Ilitch pays a king's ransom to land his slugging Prince Fielder


Big.

You can't avoid the word.

Big deal. Big name. Big contract. Big man.

Big money. Big risk. Big upside. Big story.

"Big" is hardly a new adjective when it comes to Prince Fielder. Some of us remember him as an oversize schoolkid wandering around the Tigers' clubhouse in the early 1990s. He would sit by his dad Cecil's locker, eating the post-game food -- a Prince on a throne -- and the word we whispered then is the word we scream today.

Big.

Only now it's not "big for his age," it's big bat, big home runs, big RBIs and a really big contract. A nine-year deal in the vicinity of $214 million that easily smashes the record for Detroit players and makes the 27-year-old slugger a focal point for the entire baseball nation.



Can't wait! :rock:

What? It's a better pickup than the Angels getting Pujols.

Sucks for any hope the Dodgers had getting him. Tigers looking pretty good to make it to the series next season.

If I was a player I wouldn't even consider the Dodgers yet. I would wait until they have all their [expletive] in order and with a new owner.



But can't wait to see how this season is going to turn out, I'm so damn excited.

How?

Because he's younger?

It's a great move, just not the best.
