Early last offseason before Victor Martinez blew out his knee, the Tigers had a big glaring hole at third base named Brandon Inge. One of the free agents that they could, and should, have made a run at was Aramis Ramirez from the Cubs who instead ended up in Milwaukee hitting behind Ryan Braun.
Ramirez signed a three-year deal with the Brewers for $36 million with a mutual option for 2015 and is only making $6 million this season. Fielder on the other hand is signed for nine-years and $214 million and forced Miguel Cabrera to play third base. The question Tigers fans, are you still happy with Prince or will the Tigers regret not going after Ramirez?
Here’s a few more facts about their seasons so far, Prince is currently hitting .314 with 19 home runs and 81 RBI’s in 112 games so far in his first season in the American League. Ramirez on the other hand is currently hitting .294 with 15 home runs and 70 RBI’s hitting in Fielder’s old spot in the lineup.
So for an extra $18 million...
