Prince Fielder is your newest Detroit Tiger at 9 years/$214 million.  Early word suggests that Miguel Cabrera may be moving back to third base.  Brandon Inge was last seen wandering down Detroit side streets muttering to himself sadly.

I couldn't be more surprised if I woke up this morning with my head sewn to the carpet.  More on this later after I change my underpants.

Hopefully Cabrera would end up at third or outfield.  The chuckleheads at mlb.com are reporting that "Presumably, Fielder will play first base and Miguel Cabrera would DH"  

Lot of chatter about it but I'm with you, I didn't see this happening for a dozen reasons.

I was in drivers training class when I heard. I have never smiled while listening to stories about horrific car crashs until today. This is crazy.

Me, outside smoking, reading my twitter feed at noonish today:  "Oh, Buster Olney, you ignorant bastard, Prince Fielder is not going to sign with the Tigers."

Me, checking mlbtraderumors a few hours later: "Well played, Olney.  Well played, indeed."

Followed by,


country strong is back.  rod has already confirmed this.

I was at work and got a text from a White Sox fan. Said reports saying Tigers were getting Prince. I responded that no, that's was Olney's rumor starting nonsense, followed by the obligatory "White Sox suck" statement. Two minutes later it was everywhere and I was flipping out.
