The Detroit Tigers went out and made a big splash signing slugger Prince fielder to a princely contract this offseason. The Tigers potentially boast the best three-four punch in all of baseball, and a lineup that can make up for a pitcher who is having an off day.
Despite all the excitement about the lineup, there are a number of questions as well. Will Fielder be able to put up similar numbers in Detroit as he did in the smaller Miller Park?
Will shifting to third cause Miguel Cabrera difficulties at the plate?
Who exactly is playing second?
Will the real Austin Jackson please stand up?
Can Brennan Boesch continue to be the hitter he was before a torn ligament in his thumb ended his season?
Let's explore the Tigers lineup and see what to expect from each of the hitters.
