He wont last 3 years... strike that ...2 years. A true one dimensional player that will fill in once in awhile at 1st base. 20 million a year for a dh? I wonder what the over under is for this guy being 300# in two years? What a slob.

I hope you are right. I hope he gets busted for REAL steroids.

I don't care anymore. If the Tigers want to sign Fielder so be it. I hope I'm wrong. Lets see what happens in the next 9 years. I think biggest mistake ever. When we signed Cabrera the big question was his weight, he had to trim down a bit to figure into the roster. Now he only has to hang out with Prince... I can see both balloon up.

First, Fielder is an athletic HUGE dude. Not "fast" athletic, but not FAT either.

Second, he will be playing first base all the time. Not a part-time 1st base/DH (according to what he reportedly told Tigers before he signed.)

Inge is likely going to be replaced by Cabrerra, and when Martinez comes back next season there could be a whole different scenario to look at.

I think it's great that they picked up an exciting player that can hit like he can! If the pitching holds, and we can get a few more base hits and home runs (or even just the THREAT of either one!) Tigers could be a scary team to play for anyone!

The length of the contract is obviously a bother, but he's still young, and while he is admittedly a 1-dimensional player, that actually is in his favor for a long term contract, since you wont' have to worry about him losing speed or range.

Don't forget Boesch is coming back. If HE can hit as well as he ought to...

Fielder just gets on base. Whether it be a hit (a lot of the time a homer) or a walk, he produces runs. Remember all that talk about him and Braun being the dynamic duo in baseball, well Detroit, now there is a new dynamic duo, Fielder and Miggy. You know have a potent as hell offense for years to come. The long contract doesn't hurt an AL team as much as a NL. If he stops making plays at 1B, toss him in the DH spot. Also he was hitting balls into the upper deck in Detroit when he was 12, cmon! I wouldn't worry about the contract. He's a better deal than Pujols at more money for longer. Pujols is 32, Fielder is 27.

I had already made my peace with Fielder being gone at the end of the year. Tried to enjoy him being on the team as much as possible this year. Even though I knew it would happen, it was still a sad day. He played a big part in turning our organization around and he will be greatly missed (especially if Gamel can't get his **** straight).

Let's see if they can go out and win a WS now instead of choking it away again.
