Reactions To The Prince Fielder Signing

Scott Boras did it again. Just when it looked like the market for Prince Fielder had slowed late in the offseason, Boras got his prized client the fourth richest contract in baseball history. The Tigers agreed to sign the slugger to a nine-year contract worth $214MM today, giving them the most devastating 3-4 lineup tandem in the game. Here's a recap of what's been said about the deal…

  • "In some sense, I'm glad he got a good contract that he's satisfied with. We knew early on that we probably weren't going to be in it. I think Prince probably knew that, too," said Brewers GM Doug Melvin to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. Melvin confirmed they hadn't had serious extension talks with Fielder since Spring Training of 2010, and he credited the slugger with helping the team get back to being contenders.
  • Rival executives told Joel Sherman of The New York Post that they think the signing came from ownership, not GM Dave Dombrowski (Twitter link). He says deals for other Boras clients — Johnny Damon, Ivan Rodriguez, and Magglio Ordonez — happened the same way. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports heard that owner Mike Illitch influenced the signing "100%" (Twitter link).
  • The Nationals and a mystery team were strongly in on Fielder, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (Twitter links). The Mariners, meanwhile, told teams they didn't have money to spend on a hitter of Prince's caliber, which is why they traded for Jesus Montero according to Sherman.
  • Andrew Baggarly of The Mercury News says (on Twitter) that the Giants were never really in on Fielder.
  • ESPN's Keith LawDave Cameron of FanGraphs, and SI.com's Cliff Corcoran agree that Fielder will improve the Tigers in the short-term, but the last few years of the contract could be messy.

Am I wrong in thinking this came about mostly because of Victor Martinez’s injury? It’s hard to imagine another team taking on that kind of contract, despite their needs. Even the Nationals seemed to be waiting for the price tag to come down.

Waiting to see how both the big 1B contracts turn out towards the end will be quite intriguing.  Unless you’re a Tigers or Angels fan, of course.

This signing has illitch all over it.

He wants a WS so bad, he has almost no regard for money. He understands he has a 3 year window in which he has the best hitter and pitcher in the game today and is willing to give whatever it takes to give them a more than stellar supporting cast. I love this move by illitch. It puts them all in; and his timing isnt that bad. If the tigers are looking at a three year window, then imagine the devastation when their 3-4-5 hitters are mig, prince, and vmart.

The only players that will be rotating in the next 3 years are some supporting utility guys and some bullpen arms. The staff and core are locked in. This was a good signing; an overpay, sure. But if the guy who spends the money doesn’t care, then neither do I.

mmiller54
3 years 6 months ago

By best hitter you better mean Cabrera.

Pawsdeep
3 years 6 months ago

Correct.

And prince would be ‘supporting cast’. And if prince isnt the best hitter in a lineup, and it’s my team, I’m a happy camper. A very happy camper.

mmiller54
3 years 6 months ago

Absolutely. Cabrera’s hitting ability is profound. I’d probably pick about 15 hitters over Fielder for now and the future. However as your second best hitter… Watch out.

Pawsdeep

Could argue third best when vmart returns…

Youre right. BBBBUUUUUUTTTTT, any lineup where vmart is your THIRD best hitter….

Agreed – that’s just absurd. The Tigers have long been my favorite AL team, and it killed me to see them lose to the Cardinals in ’06. I really hope the Prince signing works out for them long-term.

It should be a good 3 years, but after that I really feel Kansas City will need to be reckoned with.  They are building an organization that has all the makings of an Atlanta like sustained run. But…so many things happen…a good day to be a Tigers fan.

Pawsdeep

No arguements here. KC will soon be scary good. Which is why I’m stoked they are going all in now.

I feel like it is going to be almost obligatory of DD to trade turner of he doesn’t have an immediate contribution after spring training.

Jim McCormick
3 years 6 months ago

Ha, I don’t forget about KC. They have a hell of a good young team and I think they will make a run at the central this year but they just won’t have a rotation to keep up. Let’s not forget the rotation the Tigers have. This pitching staff(the minor league young guys too) with this lineup for the next few years will be great.

Another Dream Team.  

3 years 6 months ago

Holy crap, he traded for Jose Bautista and Roy Halladay?!

JacksTigers
3 years 6 months ago

Verlander is better than Halladay and Cabrera is better than Bautista, in my opinion.

Lunchbox45
3 years 6 months ago

Cabrera yes.

Verlander, not yet atleast. the potentials there.. but Verlander needs to have another 5 or 6 good seasons before we can say he’s better that Doc

Pawsdeep
3 years 6 months ago

He’s better than doc right now. Verly is on the up and doc is going down the other side of the hill. No disrespect to Halladay, but verlander isn’t 35 and on the back end of his career.

Lunchbox45
3 years 6 months ago

but Doc has a better year than Verlander last year, so how does that work?

and ofcourse going forward you take the younger JV..thats obvious. 

but if the argument is then best young pitcher in baseball, do we not look to kershaw then?

Amakiir
3 years 6 months ago

No, Verlander clearly had a better year last year.  He outperformed Halladay in almost every category.  All except walks and homeruns, basically.

Keith Richards
3 years 6 months ago

What are you smoking?  You can’t just throw out nicknames and expect us to gobble up your bs.  Can you say MVP?  Halladay didn’t win the NL MVP, did he?

101andCounting
3 years 6 months ago

No he didn’t. But Jeter won the Gold Glove. My point being, of course, that awards are mostly meaningless.

The_Silver_Stacker
3 years 6 months ago

Jeter is a very good fielder, terrible example.

101andCounting
3 years 6 months ago

He certainly *was* a very good fielder, but according to UZR, his defense has dropped off a cliff in the past couple of years, including 2010, when he posted a -5.4 UZR and still won a Gold Glove.

The_Silver_Stacker
3 years 6 months ago

Well if you want to bring range into play, I will admit Jeter is below average in that regard.  Jeter fields the balls he get to very well and rarely cost the Yankees games with his defense.  I just go by what I see on the field.

Stuart Brown

Look, I’m a Tigers fan too but if you think Halladay is spiraling downward I don’t know what you’re looking at. Sure he’s getting *older*, but he has been getting better since 2007. The man’s unbelievable.

3 years 6 months ago

Last time I checked, Halladay hadn’t won an MVP AND a Cy Young in the same year. Hall of Famer for sure. Best in the NL, definitely. Best in the game? Arguable.
And Cabrera might not be the best hitter in the game – but he’s definitely better than Bautista.

Lunchbox45
3 years 6 months ago

Omg halladay didn’t win an MVP an CY Young in the same year what a bum!!!

seriously, who cares about awards. I bet you JV barely cares either, only one thing matters, the last game of the world series.

Cabrera is obviously a magnificent hitter, but Bautista has been the better offensive player the past 2 seasons, with Miggy coming in #2. And also, I would take Halladay over Verlander

That takes defense and speed into account. This is the best hitter debate.

Thanks for playing.

3 years 6 months ago

hahahaha… bautista is no where near the threat cabrera is. quote as many meaningless stats as you want, 100% of the owners in the league would take cabrera over bautista. you cant just look at one number and sum it up and say oh hes better. put bautista on any other team and any other field and hes just a normal everyday power hitter, nothing special. the reason he walks so much (which artificially inflates his % stats) is because no one else on the team can hit. who cares if he can hit a home run, cabrera is a real hitter.

holladay is definitely at the top of the heap but jv has earned his spot up there too, in shorter time. hes 27 you cant tell me you would take holladay at this point in his career over jv.

3 years 6 months ago

So Fielder plays first, and Cabrera DHs and V-Mart plays??? There is no way Cabrera goes back to third, and no way V-mart catches for any significant period of time. V-Mart is a trade candidate not an everyday player

Pawsdeep

Well see. I’ll take aramis aramis type defense from Cabrera at third in trade to have those three bats in the lineup. I’d do that gladly.

..and Lincecum’s isn’t as good as Verlander’s!  =P

3 years 6 months ago

Actually it was just as good when he came up.  He was throwing 101 all the time and that was a two seemer.  Righetti told him, like Cain, to back off their fastballs for control.  Both can reach back to 97, but choose not to.  I wouldn’t argue that Verlander had better year than Lincecum, but Tim could throw 100 if he wanted to.

Hoosierdaddy92
3 years 6 months ago

People need to remember there isn’t a slugger nearly as good as Fielder hitting the market next year. The year after, Youkilis and Wright are already on big-market teams and have serious injury risks and age concerns. Votto is going to have many suitors. The Dodgers and Mets will most likely go after him with deeper pockets. The timing of the VMart injury just gave the Tigers the reason necessary to jump on it and go after a perennial All-star.

LUWahooNatFan

Josh Hamilton just gave you the bird

mmiller54

And in the process hurt himself… I really like him and his story, but he is as fragile glass.

Hoosierdaddy92
3 years 6 months ago

Very valid point. As Matt mentioned below me, he is extremely injury prone. Additionally, after missing out on Prince Fielder, I find it highly unlikely Texas doesn’t resign him. But I have been wrong before. However, you are right, he is an elite hitter who would have fit the Tigers’ needs in LF in 2013 (hoping we don’t resign Delmon and overpay).

Uncontrolled spending like this is ruining baseball. The other teams in their division can’t compete with billionaires like Illitch who just throw their checkbooks around. I’m hoping Bud Selig can void this deal and force Fielder to re-sign with the Brewers, where he belongs. For the best interests of the game.

inleylandwetrust

Do you not realize that pretty much every owner is a billionaire? Don’t blame Illitch for actually wanting to WIN A TITLE, and investing a ton of his personal wealth into his product. Blame your own owner, not MLB.

Jakmagic

As a Brewer fan, for that kind of cash the Tigers can keep him! He isn’t worth that contract. I personally think he is worth maybe 5yrs 19 million per year. The Tiger may have made themselves better for a couple of years, but their defense just took a major blow if Fielder is at 1B and Miggy at 3B. I don’t see Fielder putting up nearly the numbers he has if he is moved to DH. History tells us that! 24 million for a DH is staight up crippling! Adding I still don’t see the Tigers coming out of the AL to the world series. Rangers, Angels, Red Sox, and prolly even the Yankees are more poised to come out of the AL. I will miss seeing him mash balls in Miller Park, but not at that price! What does that signing say for the future of Miggy? Miggy is way more valuable than Fielder! I can’t see the Tigers paying Miggy after this signing.

inleylandwetrust
3 years 6 months ago

This shouldn’t impact Miggy. There is no way they would be that shortsighted to push Cabrera out the door when his deals up…at least I hope.

YODA777
3 years 6 months ago

Are you myopic or what.  Fielder will play 1b and Miggy will play 3b with Young as the DH. 

Jakmagic
3 years 6 months ago

Well let’s see what the future holds when the Tigers infield produces more errors than anyone in MLB having Fielder at 1B and Miggy at 3B! Then after that happens VMart returns from his injury. Then what happens?

verlander
3 years 6 months ago

Maybe they trade VMart and put Cabrera at DH.

Even with this signing, the Tigers payroll is still below quite a few teams.  They had $23 million coming off of the books so I bet their payroll is still under $125 million.  Now, go trade Turner for Garza and World Series here we come.  I dont think even JL can mess this up, unless he trys to sit Fielder and play Raburn at first lol

Last season the Tigers won their first divisional title since Michael Ilitch bought the team in 1992. Detroit has made only two postseason appearances over that span and finished as high as second in its division only four times.

The tigers payroll still will be under 130 mil after collecting money on VMarts insurance, barring they doesn’t sign anyone else. 130 isn’t that outrageous.

Keith Richards
3 years 6 months ago

In order for them to collect, does he have to be ruled out for the entire year/post-season?

Pawsdeep
3 years 6 months ago

I believe it is depending upon the percentage of games as to what the insurance pays out.

If Vmart doesn’t play a game this year my math had tigers opening day payroll at 119.2 million, if all my information was accurate and granted the don’t add any more payroll; which they could still do with relative ease. I’m not sure where people are getting off on what the tigers are spending. Their payroll is very reasonable when you look at the names on the roster.

Lunchbox45

I dont know about this.. I mean, I like that the Tigers are being aggresive and trying to improve an already strong club.. but I feel like so much of this stemmed from vmarts injury..

I mean wouldnt the tigers have been better off overpaying for a Jose Reyes, Beltran,  Ramirez, or Wilson?

If the Tigers win a World Series in the next two years, none of this chatter will mean the slightest.  Tiger fans are salivating over the prospect of a starting staff in 2013 that will (hopefully) include Jacob Turner, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Rick Porcello.  If Cabrera can manage to not embarrass himself too much over at 3b, this might not be too awful.  People are comparing these Tigers to the 90’s BoSox. I don’t think Boston had quite as good a pitching staff then, as Detroit does now.  Team owner Mike Illitch has worked so hard to get this team where it is.  He’s pretty old, and he’s a for real Tiger fan.  He even played a little minor league baseball in the Tigers minor league system back when Honus Wagner was an All-Star (ok not really but close).  He’s going all in.  I respect him for it.  As a life-long Tiger fan myself, all I want is for my beloved Tigs to win a World Series sometime in the near future.  I want to see Verlander hoisting that trophy over his head, in an Old English D, not a Sox (either kind) or (gag) Yankee uniform!  ’nuff said.

Cubbie fans said the same thing after the Soriano signing, knowing it probably wasn’t the best long-term, but the shot at the title was worth it. I personally have no problem with owners realizing they have a window to contend and taking their opportunity while it’s there to be had. As much as people can hate these contracts, it’s part of the cost of winning. Not every team can compete year after year.

Keith Richards

Lanidrac

At least Fielder’s contract will be up when he’s 36. The Cubs are stuck paying Soriano (or at least most of his salary) until he’s 38. It’s especially better than paying a guy $30M at age 41.

Mike Ilitch might have lost his mind and Scott Boras helped him to do so, but Mike is paying for this himself and he will not raise ticket prices!

Here’s what i’m thinking. In 2013 we got Cabrera, Martinez and Fielder. Which means Miggy has to play third. In that case we either have to keep Constanellos down in the minors or we could deal him. So why not deal him, Turner and maybe someone else this year for Garza to fill that fifth spot in the rotation. With Cabrera and Fielder and a rotation that includes Verlander,  Fister and Garza the pennant is as good as ours

I would take that deal in a heartbeat. I suspect the Theo Trio would too.

A nine year contract for that much money had to go to an Amarican League team. I think Fielder will be great for the Tigers and Im just glad Washington was in the mix, still showing they have money to spend. Now use the money on the young players we have like Zimmerman, Espinosa, Strasburg, Harper, Ramos, Zimmermann and the rest of the young core in the future. Congrats to the Tigers, you guys will be fun to watch.
