Prince Fielder will bat third for the Rangers

Nov 25, 2013, 4:06 PM EDT

Prince Fielder was introduced as a Texas Ranger today. Aww:


Almost like two years ago. They grow up so fast. Prince’s son is much older too:


In non-looking at Prince Fielder’s kid news, Fielder will number 84 for the Rangers, representing the year he was born. Or the last time the Tigers won the World Series. Whichever you prefer.

Also: Ron Washington said that Fielder will hit third in the Rangers’ lineup, which is a change from the cleanup position he’s occupied for most of his career. Fewer RBI, but a few more at bats you figure.

    Does he look really slimmed-down there? Is it just because the jersey isn’t tucked in?

      It’s from Ron’s coke diet!!

    Wow Prince’s son looks at least two years older in the Rangers picture, wouldn’t you say Craig?

    1. This hurts me. It hurts me deeply. I can’t stand to look at it. He looks adorable, and it’s not right!
    2. Did he get a haircut? I like it. Do the Rangers have a look policy? Let’s hope he rubs off on others there, so they don’t all look like Bubbas dipping at the fishing hole anymore.
    3. WTF with having the Arlington Medical Center logo posted behind him with the Rangers’? Are we announcing his debut or checking him in for treatment?
    4. What’s with giving his jersey size? Hey, Andro, why don’t you post yours too? Rude. That’s a stat that does not matter — especially when he starts banging them in.
    5. That little WS dig was cold, Craig. Colder than the bitter wind outside today. Clearly, you sleep too soundly, and that needs to be rectified.
    6. Nooooooo!!!!!! 😦

    Do you see at least a future MLB player in the picture?
    I do!

      Nope. I see a child song and dance star in a revival of a Broadway musical about the Jackson 5.
