Well, it’s been a quiet mid-winter weekend here in Michigan. We’re all still buzzing about the Tigers new acquisition – Prince Fielder. You would not believe the stunned, and very pleased, reactions among my Facebook friends. While spring training may be a ways off yet, there appears to be genuine excitement surrounding Prince Fielder. Personally, I can’t imagine a more meaningful move by Tigers’ management.
It all goes back to those long ago days in the early 90s when Cecil Fielder, Prince’s father and one of my favorite Tigers of all time, reigned supreme. It is wonderful to see Prince Fielder return to the team he hung out with as a child (see article). I can’t wait for this baseball season. It’ll be interesting to see how Prince and Cabrera work together. Spring can not come fast enough.
As for baseball, I’ve been working on a definitive baseball post for months now. It is that good. I now hope to post it the date of the Tigers’ first spring training match-up, March 2, 2012. I may not reflexively know the standings of the Tigers and White Sox all baseball season long, unlike my boyfriend Brian, but I am interested. I love the fact that baseball allows you to come to it when you please. It is just always there in the background… waiting.
