With his Agent, Scott Boras next to him and the key players of the Tigers brass, including owner Mike Ilitch, GM Dave Dombrowski and Manager Jim Leyland sitting at the table, after passing his physical, Prince Fielder was introduced as a Detroit Tiger in front of a packed crowd of media at Comerica Park.
As Columnist Mitch Albom points out the signing of Fielder is a BIG deal. Meanwhile, Michael Rosenberg points out that the Tigers are trying to keep everyone happy, for now.

You will notice that Brandon Inge ends up with the short end of the stick, which is nothing new for the longest tenured Tiger. Jason Beck noted that Inge found out the Fielder news through the media and not from the Tigers brass and he’s not a “happy camper”.
