Sure does prove your point.

On January 26, 2012 Fielder agreed to a nine-year, $214 million contract with the Detroit Tigers

Yep, And apparently during the offseason, The Tigers ALSO "didn't think he was worth $270 some odd million dollars they paid him", or they wouldn't have traded him.

 

Last I looked, Fatty Fielder was playing for the Rangers, and that sorta/kinda proves what I said above that teams didn't think he's worth that much. Detroit did, then they came to their senses and realized he was a flop, and(thankfully) traded him off to TX for Ian Kinsler, and in the process, saved over $70 million dollars. Maybe TX does, but they also thought ARod was worth $250+ million, and they didn't last long with that mindset. Now Detroit is off the hook from Fielders deal.

I bet the Nats are second guessing giving Werth all that money too.

Did you see your man Pujols hit his 500th today? You being an admitted Angels fan, you should be ecstatic. How's Bobby Grich doing these days?
