Tigers Acquire Prince Fielder

So as we all know, Prince Fielder finally chose his future destination in our division rival, the Detroit Tigers. After viewing the comment sections in other posts, it seems as though many Twins fans are unhappy and discouraged. I, for one, am glad Detroit added approx. 24 Million a year to their roster at a position of no need. Neither Cabrera or Fielder are athletic enough to play 3B. This means that either Fielder, Martinez, or Cabrera will have to sit on the bench regularly. Unless, they want to replace a great catcher in Alex Avila on occasion.

Don't get me wrong, this move can only make the Tigers better. Significantly? No. They would have been better off adding starting pitching to a rotation that is awful minus the AL MVP. What I'm getting at is he really isn't worth $214 to a team like the Tigers. Especially in the later years in his career or if (more of a matter of when) he lands on the DL. I'd honestly rather see them add Prince Fielder instead of Edwin Jackson. The positive thing for the Tigers is that he fits their mold of a slow position player with no glove (mind Austin Jackson). There is no salary cap in baseball, but you have to believe that this type of acquistion limits what the Tigers' front office is willing to do in terms of future free agents.

Below is a Twins related poll. Justin Morneau says he felt concussion symptoms last month and still has problems with his head. This is clearly not good news and my gut tells me he's "done." Your opinions?
