Prince Fielder to the Tigers.....

By Fantasy Boyz Editor in Chief Corey Bugenhagen

Look for more Explosions like this in Motown in 2012

When the news broke today about Prince Fielder's mega contract my first thought was TO WHERE?  I had no inkling that the Tigers were players in the Fielder derby.  Teams like Seattle and Texas were the only names I had heard as serious players.  When Victor Martinez went down with a knee injury a few weeks back I wondered how the Tigers would ever replace that bat.  Well they did and in a MAJOR way.  I absolutely love this signing for two reasons.  For one as I had mentioned it replaces the huge loss of Martinez(who could possibly be back late in the season).  Secondly it adds some added swagger and intimidation to the middle of the Tigers lineup.  Martinez was a good all around hitter but he didn't strike fear in the hearts of opposing pitchers like Prince will soon be doing in Motown.  I would argue that Fielder/Cabrera duo is every bit as good as the Fielder/Braun duo was in Milwaukee.  Needless to say Detroit became a favorite to win not only their division but the whole damn thing.  I give them credit for making this bold move.  I don't have much to say about fantasy implications since Fielder is in just as good a situation as he was last year. 

We at Fantasy Boyz Sports want to thank you for the support our readers showed us during the football seasons.  It was a blast to put out our weekly rankings, and waiver wire reports.  We look forward to being every bit as active for the upcoming baseball season.  Remember Pitchers and catchers report in less than a month!!!

Look for our Preseason Baseball rankings coming soon.  We also want to get more involved with Twitter and will be creating specific Twitter accounts that point towards this site.
