Found October 26, 2012 on NESN.com:
California is certainly no stranger to earthquakes, and that certainly includes San Francisco baseball fans, who felt the ground rumble beneath their feet just prior to the 1989 World Series. Well, the Richter Scale surely moved again during this Fall Classic in the City by the Bay, but this time it had nothing to do with tectonic plates. During the fourth inning of Game 2, Hunter Pence was at the plate and sent a pitch off the hands just wide of first base into foul territory. The ball ended up being out of his reach, but Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder sure gave 110 percent, diving for the ball on the warning track -- and ending up with his face in the dirt in the process. No confirmation on how much Fielder actually moved the needle, but we're sure they felt that one in the upper deck. Check out Fielder's swan dive in the video below.

Prince Fielder hangs out with Eminem (Video)

Personally, I didn't think that Detroit Tigers slugger Prince Fielder would ever hang out with rapper Eminem but I would be totally wrong. Check out this video of Prince hanging out at Eminem's studio at Eight Mile Road courtesy of the folks over at Windows Phone: Since the Tigers are now down 2-0 to the Giants, maybe Jim Leyland should pitch Marshall Matth (Courtesy of NESN)

Left fielder Gregor Blanco threw in to home as Prince Fielder was rounding third...

HaasStyle Interpretations: Detroits’ Fielder Rounds Third

It was only Game 2 of the 2012 World Series, but the Detroit Tigers had yet to hold a lead, and they had an opportunity to go up 1-0 in the second inning with a previously shaky starter in Madison Bumgarner on the hill for the San Francisco Giants.  Prince Fielder, listed at 275 pounds but probably closer to 300, was on first base with no one out, and ALCS MVP Delmon Young was at...

Breaks not going Tigers' way

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Tigers are supposed to win the World Series. Now they trail the Giants, two games to none, and their fans want to know whom to blame. Lets take a look at the candidates, shall we? Theres Justin Verlander. He had a lousy Game 1 and Pablo Sandoval didnt. Theres Gene Lamont. The Detroit third base coach controversially waved home Prince Fielder on Delmon Youngs...

This Feels Like A Trap

People are saying the Giants are getting all the breaks. In this World Series, I have to disagree.  Big time. So far, the Giants have outplayed and outperformed the Tigers.  And it’s not even close. Game 2 fell because of two coaching decisions on the Detroit side, and only one was really a Jim Leyland call.  You know what they are. Prince Fielder Going Home This will be the...

A Yankees fan World Series prediction

My predication is that the 2012 MLB World Series Champion will be the New York Yankees. Oh wait the Yankees lost, my bad. If you could please excuse me as I am trying to purposely forget the ALCS pummeling I had to witness last week vs. the Detroit Tigers, which anyone with a half-a-brain should understand why. But this is not about the Yankees, and admittedly that fact is still...

Ryan Vogelsong and the Pitches that Won the Game

You think of the Tigers and first and foremost you think of Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, and Miguel Cabrera. You think of the Tigers on a day that Verlander isn’t pitching and you think of Fielder and Cabrera. There are other guys on the roster — lots of them! — and some of them are good, but Fielder and Cabrera are the big offensive guns. They’re the players the Tigers...
OUTFIELD PATROL

Blanco makes two sweet diving catches

Pablo Sandoval and his three home for the Giants during Game 1 of the World Series runs wasn’t the Tigers killer. Left fielder, Gregor Blanco, made two very similar diving catches in the 3rd and 6th inning to rob Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder of base hits. (Top-Cabrera’s, bottom-Fielder’s)
