Honestly, Prince seems to be a little inconsistent with his seasons, and I don't think warranted such a phat contract.
Everyone was so ready to crown Detroit when they acquired Fielder. Nice acquistion, very good team. But Fielder, and players like him, really aren't the key. It's more about pitching, and for Detroit it's whether or not they have enough after Verlander to contend deep into October. And the jury is still decidedly out on that question.
