I believe last year the payroll was around 60 some odd million right? It's 81 million today. Bottom line is, they're not trading their home grown stars for future potential stars. Romero wasn't dealt for a prospect, he was given a long term deal. Bautista wasn't deal for futures, he was signed to a long term deal.

They're spending money.

Looks like Prince is coming to the AL.

per mlbtr

The Tigers are "very close" to a nine-year deal with Prince Fielder, Yahoo's Tim Brown tweets. Fielder will join Miguel Cabrera in the middle of the Tigers' order to create more than enough offense to make up for the loss of Victor Martinez.

Should have the central locked down even if V doesn't get any action this year.

Opening day last year was ~65M. You must be including Teahen's contract in the $81M. In that case its only fair to add the 5M from the Wells trade to last years number bringing it up to $70M.

price deal is $214M, 9 yrs. #tigers

ROFL. Overpayment. So in a couple of years, they are going to have Cabrera, Fielder and V-Mart as their DH.

Caberea and Fielder should be awesome though.

Fielder is a real good hitter and all but that is a dumb deal because it means Prince will be a DH yet he still took it.

9 year 200 million dollar panic move because Martinez got hurt.

some saying that might not happen. But if they do get him, damn son. 2 superstar bats+an elite pitcher and a good #2 in Fister, pick up a SP at the deadline, and they should be one of the favourites for the WS. Ok, never mind saw that it's official now. God there good now.

Wow, good for the Tigers. They're a heck of a lot better today than they were yesterday.

Fielder and Pujols now in the AL....fml.

Has the extra wild card spot been officially confirmed for this upcoming season?

imagine if it isn't... god that would suck. At least there'd be a chance we make it with 2 WC spots, if there isn't, I just don't see how it's possible, unless our boys went crazy this offseason.

....It doesn't have a serious impact on us considering they're not in our division. It hurts everyone in the AL equally.

It's easy to see why Jays were never really in on Fielder. That term and money is flat out stupidity. He is a great player and all but he also has a bad body and likely won't age well. He's a bad fielder (lol) too. Best 1-2 punch in baseball though. They will need to win a world series for the contract to be worth it.

Pujols and Fielder in the AL... is just... damn. Jays really need to load up on pitching now.

9/214????



If the Jays came anywhere CLOSE to that offer, I'd tell Anthopolous he had lost his mind.

so they added 11M in payroll? And they're keeping their homegrown talents? Sounds good to me. If you think spending 9/214 on Prince Fielder was a good idea, you are out of your mind.

If anyone on here would have signed Fielder to that deal, you've completely lost your mind.

There are a few here that I can tell are already upset with us for not giving him that money.

I'm looking at Trellaine.

I never wanted more than 6 years, so I'm glad we didn't touch him. Make that Uehara rumour true, then I love our team, don't need our SP's to go more than 7 innings almost ever unless there on fire.

I wanted the Jays to go after hard after Fielder, but there's no way I'd want them to offer a contract like this (half that, then we'd talk). With that, the vindictive side of me would now like to see Fielder age not-so gracefully, have his talent erode rapidly and see the Tigers end up with an absolute albatross of a contract.

The AL got a whole lot more difficult, but best to concentrate on the division before anything else at this point.

This is what happens when you "must contend." One of your best players trips, falls and injures himself so you have to make a 9 year commitment in order to compensate for bad luck.

It was retarded. I kind of had a feeling they'd be in on Prince when V-Mart went down, but I didn't expect them to get that kind of a deal.

I wonder if Scott Boras could negotiate my life?
