Prince Fielder Joins Detroit Tigers; Why This Won't Be Tigers' Last Move

As fans called in to 97.1 The Ticket, Detroit's local radio station, to gloat about their now-vindicated LSD-laced call-outs from a week ago ("We should sign Prince Fielder and move Miguel Cabrera to third,")  I was surprised to find my thoughts, not fixated on the biggest bomb to drop in Detroit since Kwame's pants, but wandering much further down the path into the land of YetToCome. 

Believe me when I say this:  The Detroit Tigers are not finished.

This may seem like a move befitting of a desperate man looking to please fans after their star gets injured.  But, Dave Dombrowski is no fool; this is the beginning of a master, "win now" plan put in place by the ever-determined owner, Mike Illitch: Fielder is the first freefall of a much larger avalanche. 

Let's take a look how the presence of Prince Fielder re-shapes Detroit's landscape going forward.
