    I guess Prince can handle living in Detroit for 3 months per year.
    Every time you play a hand of you poker you wanna run through a mental check list. Head Position Hand Position Neck Position Breathing Posture. More than 25 items. It's a lot. And that why I've come up with a handy mnemonic device. Just one word: HPHPNPBPECMSPAMDCPAFTSTTL. It's easy.

    And Prince is only 1 year older than Cespedes. To get this guy at age 27 along with Cabrera and Verlander also in their primes - amazing.

    Obviously. He's the face of the franchise. They called him first. Typical DD though. If anyone wants to ever read into his stupid press conferences again, I don't know what to tell you.

    You can almost set your watch to DD. If he tells me water is wet, I'm going to double check to make sure it isn't dry.

    Well I'm sure Miggy would agree to play LF (or RF - he has a good arm) or 3b in a NY minute. He loves playing the field - he'd play short again if they would let him. DH is another matter totally.

    wonder if Miggy is playing 3rd or left again? they have to have a long term thought process. Next season you have Victor, Miggy, Prince and Avilia for 3 spots 1b, C and DH I know Alex is the odd man out in that scenario, but they all gotta play right?
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    Anyone want to find out when he flys in and meet him at the airport with signs welcoming him in? I am serious....mostly.

    Fielder will play first base and Miguel Cabrera will change roles, Heyman tweets. Victor Martinez will miss most or all of the 2012 season with a torn ACL, so it's possible that Cabrera will DH this year. He has only played 14 games at third base since being traded to Detroit after the 2007 season, but a return to the hot corner seems to be a possibility for Cabrera.\\

    I'm going to be Debbie Downer:

    I like the acquisition but don't like the length of the contract.
    On my head there is a battleground. The peaceful indigenous peppers are being invaded by the cruel and aggressive salts who have sought to commit genocide on the peppers. The peppers have managed to starve off the salts to the north which has unfortunately resulted in some uninhabitable areas in the backwoods area. The salts now claim ownership to the temple and beard regions. VT

    Miggy could DH this year. The last two years of Victor's deal play a corner outfield spot or 3B then go back to DHing.
