Keeping it all in the family....
The Detroit Tigers have added one big—in every way—bat by signing former Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder to the largest contract in franchise (Tigers) history
. The son of Cecil “Big Daddy” (not the Tennessee Williams variety—from the Madeleine Sherwood
vehicle, which also features Elizabeth Taylor, whose remarkable Christie’s auction exhibit I [Evander] viewed, and Paul Newman) Fielder, Prince should have few problems rekindling the legendary family magic in Motown. On an annual basis, the nine-year, $214 million (I had heard another report of $217 million), budget-buster would make Prince the fifth-highest annual earner currently in Major League Baseball.
