Prince Fielder will start making the big bucks right away with the Detroit Tigers.
Prince Fielder is among the best left-handed hitters in baseball, and Cubs fans are excited today because of Tuesday’s news of the Detroit Tigers signing the All-Star first baseman out of the National League Central.
The Tigers weren’t content with just winning the AL Central in 2011. No, they needed more.
