holy shit... well detroit is going to be a force now... although i still think about 4-5 years into this deal they will regret it, this makes them a top contender right now

Re: Tigers sign Prince Fielder to 9-yr/$214M deal

I don't know how they get him, Cabrera, and Martinez on the field at the same time in two years, but that is a hell of a group offensively. Not sold Cabrera can move back to third.

Martinez is out for 2012, and at his age I don't know if you can expect him to make a return. I'd be willing to bet that the Tigers didn't seriously start pursuing Prince until Martinez tore his ACL.

Re: Tigers sign Prince Fielder to 9-yr/$214M deal

Cabrera will not be moving to third. No way, no how. Am I ecstatic over this? Of course. Any time the owners open the pocket book for a premiere free agent you've gotta love it as a fan. Am I going to love this deal in 2018-19-20? Probably not. But hopefully they front-loaded it somewhat. We'll see what the exact terms are. Could be some buyouts up there at the end as well, although I doubt Boras would allow that. It'll be interesting to see how they juggle 2013 with Martinez returning from his ACL tear, but there are always teams willing to pick up a bat like his if Detroit wants to deal him for some pitching prospects (keep in mind by 2013 we'll be looking a lot closer to the end of Verlander's deal, and guys like Fister/Scherzer will be that much closer to free agency).

Re: Tigers sign Prince Fielder to 9-yr/$214M deal

There's no way on earth Cabrera is playing anywhere but 1B or DH. He couldn't do it very well 100 pounds ago, he certainly can't do it now. The Tigers don't have to worry about that for at least another year though, and no offense but Victor Martinez at his age coming off a torn ACL is not good enough to not make this move because of. More money than I thought he'd end up getting, but that's probably my fault for doubting Boras.

Re: Tigers sign Prince Fielder to 9-yr/$214M deal

Martinez still has 2 years and 25 million left even after he comes back. He'll be what, 33-34? I don't think he's going to just be put out to pasture and is borderline untradeable so they are going to have to do something. Even if they do move him they are going to have to deal with year round interleague play. I don't think they will want to sit them both in games in September.

I think we will see a fair amount of Cabrera at 3rd and maybe LF. He's going to be terrible at it, but I still think we'll see it.

Oh anybody that knows Jim Leyland knows we'll see it. But he's smart enough to leverage the situation and play him in games that really don't matter as much. Last game of a long stretch without a day off? Looking to rest some guys and figuring to lose one? Cabrera steps in for some innings at third as part of a set of moves that rest legs. (It'd probably be on the back of a day off for Cabrera, going into another day off)
