Needless to say, Boras is going to try to get that money for Prince but I don't think its out there. Prince may get $20 mil for 4-5 years but he won't get the 7-8 Boras wants him to get.

Since Prince became a free agent I've repeated the same mantra in my head "Please don't sign him Tigers, Please don't sign him" When Martinez went down it was "If you can sign him for 1 year OK" Now it is just " what a colossus FU"

Ok, I am confused. Why don't you want him? I admit I now hate him cause I am bitter. But why don't you want him with the Tiggers? Too long a contract? What?
