Yesterday I watched the special segment of the PRINCE FIELDER signing on national television and here’s my thoughts:
Mike Ilitch isn’t fooling around in his quest to bring bring his Tigers to the World Series Championship! And neither should we.
All true Tiger fans should jump on board his wagon of shrewd thinking…now hear this…TICKET SALES ARE BOOMING!
How many sell outs will the THREE HALL-OF-FAMERS, Verlander, Cabrera and Fielder bring into Comerica?? All home games?
Perhaps. And even when they’re on the road? At any rate the money making attendance figures will soar. And so will the
Tigers. Their explosive lineup will explode. Runs should be plentiful for our starting pitchers to enjoy! And us too.
Speaking of pitchers…those free agent pitchers will now look at Detroit’s power and guess what? They’ll want in.
Also speaking of pitchers…Prince Fielder is not the first Prince to wear the English “D”. Look at the great Tiger’s statues
in deep center field and you will find the other one: HALL-OF-FAMER, SOUTHPAW HAROLD “PRINCE” NEWHOUSER. Will
Prince Fielder accomplish the mighty feats of Newhouser?? This new Tiger is a shoe-in if he continues with his bombing.
And you & I are going to enjoy every minute of it! Thanks to Mike Ilitch.
And how about Cabrera playing third? For those of us who have played 150 games of pro ball in one year, realize that
playing different positions in baseball IS NOT AS COMPLICATED as the average fan worries about. “Cabbie” will be ok.
Then there’s the tough LEYLAND job of welcoming Victor Martinez back into his lineup. Do you mean to tell me that visions
of FIELDER, CABRERA and MARTINEZ hitting doesn’t cause you a few glorious flip flops? Folks, if it doesn’t you should take your
pulse immediately. Oh yeah, that’s going to cause Jim Leyland fits….all good ones.
And then there’s all the FREE P.R. that’s already started for Dave Dombrowski and his gang to contend with. Already yesterday’s
WELCOME HOME PRINCE FIELDER TELEVISION PARTY was televised nationally on THE BASEBALL NETWORK live and then repeated
for the rest of the day! Millios saw it over and over with high-in-the-sky ratings. That exposure would have cost the Tigers
Billions of dollars but they got it all for FREE! Yes, I said billions. National TV commercials are out of sight, cost wise.
I’ll see you down at Comerica…if I can get a seat!
