Detroit Tigers Sign Prince Fielder for 200 Mil

#115305 2 years, 9 months ago
The Detroit Tigers announced they have signed Prince Fielder to a 9 year 200 Million dollar contract.
What would YOU do with 200 Million?

It's a lot of money but it might be well spent. Fielder hit a lot of home runs last year and many of them were in clutch situations. A situational hitter with that kind of power? Not many of those around.

He hits when it counts yes and The Tigers are now the favorites to win the World Series and many in Detroit think our owner has lost his mind but at the same time are happy with the excitement that comes with this signing. The GM said 2 days ago that Prince wasnt a good fit, then the owner stepped in and BAM, the Tigers now have him. I can remember watching him hit bomb after bomb during batting practice when he was 11! Should make for an interesting summer in The D. Now if we could only get Furthur to play Michigan....

Seen him play many times against the Phillies. Very exciting. He's the kind of guy you could build a whole team around, regardless of whether he's a "good fit" or not.

He finally got his money. That's all he's ever cared about. He hung that over the Brewer's heads the whole time he played there.

I'm glad the Cardinals didn't get him. We can't afford to pay these large contracts. Pujols got 250 million over 10 years. Sooner or later his production won't be on that level. I like to see the Card's spread it around, and have a better over all team.

Best of luck with Fielder, I'm sure he will provide lots of excitement.
