Well, I'd be more excited at a Michigan show, but this is pretty darn cool too! I remember little Prince hitting those early long balls, want to see some more now. Tigers really could go all the way this year. Guess it'll be a little easier to make it through the summer, until next football season, this way.

All those poor Red Sox fans who are going to be so sad this season!!

Detroit sports are definitely on the upswing......Lions, Tigers and red Wings are all highly competitive teams. The Pistons are pretty crappy but you have to have one bad team in town. I am a lifelong White Sox fan and usually go to at least a dozen games each year. We are officially in "rebuilding mode" having gotten rid of our coach and our ace pitcher Mark Buehrle. Guess I wont have to buy any tickets through stub hub this year!

I'm just going to keep re-reading this sentence all day, and pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. Because, insert huge smile, it's actually true!!!!!! Finally!!!!!

Wow thats a ton of dough. Good for DET (Sue)

If I got 200 mili , Have always said that i would ony need maybe 1 million for myself. Would give the rest away. Not just give ,but build schools, parks, gardens, ..........whatever comes up. Maybe even build a world-class venue like TRI in the midwest to attract the boys & company.

Oh, and I would feed all of the animals in shelters with the BIGGEST click donation the have ever seen

What are they going to do with Cabrerra? Put him at 3rd base?!? Just look at his stint in LA to see how well changing positions went....it was a freaking trainwreck!

While I like Prince (his dad was a masher in Detroit back in the day), the Tigers overpaid on this one. 45 Million PER YEAR just for Prince and Cabrerra (who both give you good O and horrible D) seems way to rich. If the owner remains committed to spending more money to shore up the bullpen and resign their starting rotation in the coming years it might be worth it. Welcome to the Luxury Tax Tigers!

I love my Tigers and hope this somehow gets them over the hump so they can pop the corks in October!

Fielder, Cabrerra, Peralta and Avila....that lineup is stacked.

I imagine they will have Fielder DH most of the time and Cabrerra stay at first. Victor Martinez is supposedly out for the season

I'm thinking more likely Fielder at first (runs in the family) and Cabrera as DH or in the outfield. So many .300+ hitters to juggle, what an awful problem! Although, when he's sober I have to say Cabrera can make some pretty impressive grabs on D too!
