Little Fielder is also a Tiger!!

Cecil is quite fit to tie the sandle of his son, Prince

The Tigers reportedly signed Prince Fielder to a 9 year, 214 million dollar contract yestreday, pending the outcome of a routine physical. Kind of hard to believe, especially after Dombrowski said just last week that the son of former Tiger Cecil was probably "not a good fit" due to the length of contract Fielder wanted.
I can just see FSD eating this up, pairing Prince with Detroit's own Tayshawn to do cheesy commercials...

In seven big league seasons, Fielder has stolen 16 bases, struck out 767 times, hit 230 home runs and knocked in 656 runs. Career .390 OBP and .540 slugging  He was the first 23 year old to hit 50 homers in 2007. 3 time all star, 2 silver slugger awards...kinda glad the Rangers didn't get him...

In 2011, Fielder was 2nd in the NL in homers, RBI, OBP, and BB, and 3rd in the League in total bases, extra base hits, and slugging percentage.

Enjoy the ride, Detroit fans!!!
