Prince Fielder

  1. Miguel Cabrera wants to play first base

    Nov 27, 2013, 4:51 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Venezuelan newspaper El Universal reports that Miguel Cabrera has told the Tigers that he wants to play first base. This is probably a relief to everyone in the Tigers organization, who you have to figure WANT Cabrera to play first base now that Prince Fielder is gone. And want to have third base open for…

  2. Quote of the Day: Prince Fielder admits he sucked

    Nov 26, 2013, 8:54 AM EST

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Six

    Prince Fielder was asked yesterday about his disappearing act during the playoffs this past season and the fact that the hometown folks started to complain about it: “Everybody was on me a little bit about my performance, but rightfully so,” said Fielder. “I sucked, but I didn’t have to be reminded of it. Hopefully, we…

  4. Wild rumor time: Robinson Cano might have met with the Tigers yesterday

    The Tigers were able to shed the monster contract of Prince Fielder earlier this week in the deal that netted them Ian Kinsler from the Rangers. Is it possible that the next step will be to pursue free agent second baseman Robinson Cano? That scenario seems extremely unlikely for a variety of reasons, but there…

  5. One thing Miguel Cabrera won’t miss about Prince Fielder: protection

    Nov 22, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Upon hearing the news that the Tigers had traded Prince Fielder to the Rangers for Ian Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera appeared to be mourning a bit on Twitter, posting a collection of pictures involving the two during their time in Detroit. It was a humanizing moment for a player who has given us no choice over…

  6. Prince Fielder’s no-trade clause could have blocked a trade to Texas

    Nov 22, 2013, 9:55 AM EST

    Prince Fielder

    If Rangers fans are missing Ian Kinsler, they can at least take comfort in knowing that Prince Fielder is happy to be in Texas. Datapoint 1: Evan Grant reports that Fielder had a no-trade clause provision which could’ve blocked a trade to the Rangers. He didn’t use it. As the Rangers were one of the…

  7. Miguel Cabrera appears to be getting pretty emo about the Prince Fielder trade

    Nov 21, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    Miguel Cabtera

    Go check out Miguel Cabrera’s Twitter page since last night’s Prince Fielder trade. He’s posting and retweeting pics of him and Prince Fielder like crazy. Usually without comment. It’s giving off a decidedly sad vibe, to be honest: pic.twitter.com/GPYyF070sv — Miguel Cabrera (@MiguelCabrera) November 21, 2013   I can almost hear those opening piano notes…

  8. Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, and mouthwatering moves

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Opening monologue: How many players in baseball history have a name as incompatible as “Prince Fielder?” Crazy, right? It would be like Bud Harrelson being named “Crown Batter” or Randy Johnson being named “Elfin Junkballer,” or Alex Rodriguez being named “Innocent victim.” Am I right? And what’s the deal with all the questions they ask…

  9. The Rangers may not be done yet

    Landing Prince Fielder is a pretty big move. But Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers may still sign a big free agent or trade one of their middle infielders: Source: #Rangers still want to add another bat. Could continue pursuit of free agents such as McCann, Beltran, Cruz, etc. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) November 21,…

  10. The Tigers and Rangers trade is just as much about past mistakes as it is about current need

    Nov 21, 2013, 5:34 AM EST

    Prince Fielder

    In case you missed the big news last night, the Tigers traded Prince Fielder to Texas for Ian Kinsler. Detroit is sending along around $30 million. The net result: the Tigers get Kinsler and about $70 million in salary relief, the Rangers get seven years of Fielder and a $138 million bill for his services.…

  11. Tigers win big in shedding Prince Fielder’s contract

    Nov 20, 2013, 9:01 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Give lots of credit to Dave Dombrowski; the potential nightmare back half of Prince Fielder‘s nine-year, $214 million contract is no more. Instead, Fielder and the $168 million he’s still owed is gone after two mildly disappointing seasons in Detroit, with Ian Kinsler‘s more palatable deal coming back. The Tigers sent along $30 million in…

  12. Tigers, Rangers agree to trade involving Prince Fielder and Ian Kinsler

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:24 PM EST

    Ian Kinsler

    Minutes ago, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that the Tigers and Rangers had been discussing a trade involving first baseman Prince Fielder and second baseman Ian Kinsler. Apparently, talks progressed quickly because both teams have agreed to a trade, Heyman reports. Another player could be involved in the trade, but that has not been…

  13. Tigers, Rangers discussing trade that could involve Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that the Tigers and Rangers have discussed a trade that would send first baseman Prince Fielder to the Rangers and second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Tigers. In terms of OPS, the Rangers had the second-worst production from their first baseman in the American League, beating only the…

  14. Trout? Cabrera? Doesn’t matter much. They both had MVP seasons

    Nov 15, 2013, 11:47 AM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    A quick thought on the Miguel Cabrera-Mike Trout MVP race. As you might know, I had a vote this year. And I voted for Trout. I suppose that won’t be a shocker for anyone on this site. I’ve never hidden my strong opinion that while Cabrera’s the best hitter in the game, Trout is the best…

  15. The Tigers win baseball’s Philanthropic Excellence Award

    In 2010 Major League Baseball came up with the Commissioner’s Award for Philanthropic Excellence which, as the name suggests, was created to recognize the charitable and philanthropic efforts of MLB Clubs. The Red Sox won it the first year. The White Sox won it in 2011. The Blue Jays won it in 2012. This year?…

  16. The Tigers will pursue a closer, will not bring back Jhonny Peralta

    Nov 4, 2013, 4:28 PM EST

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Five

    As is usually the case, the Tigers closer situation is uncertain heading into the offseason. That’s because the guy they finally got to stick in the role this past season — Joaquin Benoit — is a free agent.  Dave Dombrowski addressed the closer role and other matters yesterday, and John Lowe of the Free Press…

  17. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EST

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

  18. Forget the ‘one great player’ structure for this World Series

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:59 AM EST

    2013WSLogo

    BOSTON — There seems to be quite a bit of talk about continuity going into this year’s World Series. Well, hey, it’s the Cardinals and the Red Sox again. Fourth time. That was the matchup in ’46, with Stan Musial and Ted Williams, Enos Slaughter and Johnny Pesky, Red Schoendienst and Bobby Doerr and that…

    While I’m sure many Red Sox fans were looking forward to a rematch of the 1916 World Series with the Brooklyn Robins (what, you don’t remember that?), the Red Sox are matched up with their historically most familiar World Series rival: the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the fourth matchup between these storied franchises. They met in…

  20. Prince Fielder: “It’s over, bro”

    Oct 20, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Six

    Prince Fielder was by no means the biggest reason the Tigers lost to the Red Sox in six games in the ALCS. But the Tigers are paying him $214 million over nine years and he had just four hits (three singles and a double) in 24 trips to the plate against Sox pitching, so he…

  21. The Tigers storm back to take the lead in the 6th inning of Game 6

    Oct 19, 2013, 10:35 PM EST

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz didn’t have enough gas to get through the sixth inning of Game 6. After shutting the Tigers out through five, he showed diminished velocity and command, as he walked lead-off batter Torii Hunter on consecutive 88 MPH fastballs. He then surrendered a single to Miguel Cabrera through the hole between…

  22. Leyland: Seeing Miguel Cabrera play hurt “kind of breaks your heart”

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera played with a sore groin throughout most of the second half of the season, limiting his ability to defend his Triple Crown. The soreness has continued to bother him throughout the post-season both at the plate and defensively at third base. Opposing teams have considered attacking him with bunts, but…

    The Tigers pulled within one run of the Red Sox in the bottom of the seventh inning, but they squandered a chance at a bigger rally. Jose Iglesias and Torii Hunter hit back-to-back singles off Junichi Tazawa, setting up Miguel Cabrera to hit with runners at first and third and nobody out. However, the air…

  25. Tigers on the board against Red Sox in Game 5 of ALCS

    The Tigers still have some work to do, but they are on the board against the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS. The suddenly-hot Austin Jackson led off the bottom of the fifth inning with a single and was bunted over to second base by Jose Iglesias. The bunt required an excellent play…
