That's sad. Great player and all but the 3rd player ever to get 200M+? That's crazy but I gotta hand it to Boras. Sold Prince well and got what he wanted even when the market wasn't big for him.

Seems like Detroit made somewhat of a desperation move after losing V-Mart as they didn't seem to be in on Pujols.

I'm looking forward to next year's FA and hoping the pitchers hit the market because I really really really want Hamels.

EDIT: were they even on Reyes or Wilson?
