Found January 23, 2012 on Tiger Tales:
In reviewing the history of the Detroit Tigers, I often think about the best seasons to be a Tigers fan.  So, I am writing a series of posts listing the top 20 seasons in Tigers history.  There is no specific formula for determining the best seasons, but there are some criteria which I consider carefully.  Playoff appearances, especially those leading to world championships are, of

DTW News and Notes

This is not the time of year when hope springs eternal;  it is more the time when things seem infernal. As we all know by now, the Tigers will be doing 2012 without Victor Martinez.  As if that isn’t bad enough, the interim between this disaster and the eventual response is being filled with headlines that do anything but inspire (Could Brad Penny be the Tigers’ No. 5 starter...

Miguel Cabrera Likely to Play Third Base, Prince Fielder First Base for Tigers

The Detroit Tigers shocked the baseball world by stepping in to sign Prince Fielder Tuesday. The deal is as hefty as the bulky first baseman — 9 years for $214 million, according to reports. The terms of the contract, as well as the structure of the Tigers’ current roster, makes the signing a surprise. Detroit already has Miguel Cabrera signed for four more years with $86 million...

A Tigers-Fielders tale

Prince Fielders relationship with his father, Cecil, might be strained beyond the breaking point, but the two men have followed a similar path in baseball.

Questions Abound Regarding Prince Fielder's 9-Year Contract With the Tigers, But Now Is Not the ...

Before I say anything, just let this sink in for a minute. That lineup is D-I-double-R durrrrrrty. With the addition of the non-inept version of Ryan Raburn and possibly even Victor Martinez come August (though I'm doubtful about the latter), there isn't a pitcher in baseball that would have a good night's sleep before facing this team. Of course, with any deal there...

Drew Sharp: Fielder makes a lot of sense for Tigers in 2012, but not beyond

It makes absolutely no sense paying two guys who basically are the same player more than $45 million annually. And anyone who thinks Miguel Cabrera "easily" could move to third base or leftfield, do you need a reminder of how badly that played out in 2008?

Prince, Tigers reportedly agree to nine-year deal

John Lowe: With Prince on board, lineup options hard but unlimited

Jim Leyland needs to sharpen his pencil and get more notepaper. The Tigers manager likes to jot down potential lineups during the off-season. On Tuesday, Prince Fielder agreed to join Leyland's lineup at first base. Miguel Cabrera said he's moving to third. So Leyland can start afresh on formulating his various lineup combinations for this season.
