Prince Fielder signs with the Tigers

Wow, I did not see this coming. I guess it feels good to go home. As a Brewers fan I can say that I am disappointed that Prince left, especially with the Braun situation that is still ongoing. Being a realist though I knew it was inevitable, we simply could not afford him. This is a great move for the Tigers only if Miguel Cabrera works out at third, not sure he can do it but also not sure he cannot. I do look forward to seeing how this team plays this year. I am glad our owner didn't pay Prince what he wanted because we have a bunch of young talent that can bring us similar(not the same) numbers as Prince did at a budget price. However that being said I am glad to see Prince get the contract he wanted because honestly what our organization was paying him was a joke. Very reminiscent of the Cards and Pujols monetarily early on.

Prince I do want to thank you for the time you spent with us here in Milwaukee it has been six great years that have brought a feeling of "Hey we got a shot!" in to a baseball team that was terrible for many years. Thank you for helping our team get back to winning more than we lose and for staying classy the whole time. Best of luck with your new place in life and new team, I will probably make it over to Detroit to catch a game or two this year so I have a chance to see how this all works out.
