Heavy Hitting Prince joins Tiger$
It’s been a little over 24 hours ago that the shocking news broke that the Detroit Tigers were the team to land the last ‘big” free agent on the market; Prince Fielder.
It’s been 7,008 hours since I updated Tiger Tizzy. That number just might be the same number of errors that get committed by the Tigers infield during 2012.
Obviously the injury to Victor Martinez created a hole in the lineup that GM Dave Dombrowski and Owner Mike Ilitch decided needed to be filled, and fill they did.
Of course, within minutes of the Fielder signing, twitter and Facebook both exploded with the humorous announcements “Little Caesars Hot N Ready pizza’s was $5.99 now $59.99” etc, etc.
The AL Central was the Tigers to lose for 2012, with the Twins and White Sox losing ground to the Tigers in 2011 and in the off-season, with the Twins biggest signing being Josh Willingham, or is it Joel Zumaya?? , and losing Michael Cuddyer, while the Sox only signing (thus far) being Jason Frasor.
Here’s to the start of 2012 on Tiger Tizzy and there’s nothing better than some big news to kick off the baseball season and what I honestly hope will be one of the most entertaining blogs in all of baseball.
My plan for 2012 is to make sure that the 2012 Detroit Tigers season coverage and Tiger Tizzy site gets updated at least once a week. I have NO EXCUSES for not doing so before but the past is just that…the past.
Keep reading and I will keep writing about your favorite baseball team, the Detroit Tigers here on Tiger Tizzy.
