Detroit Tigers Sign Prince Fielder

Well, we are at it again according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Heyman suggests that we have won again, which we appreciate. According to writers like him, we are clearly having a stellar off-season. We did want to set the record straight.

Despite Heyman's claims that Prince Fielder went to the MYSTERY TEAM in this instance, he is sadly mistaken. As previously denoted, we would have loved to add Mr. Fielder's son to our team. However, it was not in the cards. The Detroit Tigers are a wonderfully run organization and are the team who have engineered this signing. We wish Mr. Fielder the best of luck at Comerica's Park and fine dinning establishments.

Also to add further clarifications to the article, we never signed Cliff Lee or Albert Pujols. Not that we didn't try, because indeed the MYSTERY TEAM tried. We hope to have future signings announced here on our team blog, team twitter, or team facebook.

Bartolo Colon

It has been quite a couple of days. Yankees GM Brian Cashman showed up once again to swoop in and make the kind of deals that he is known for. The kind of deals that are usually speculated upon first with the MYSTERY TEAM in mind.

The deals keep coming though. Bob Nightengale of USA Today twittered...tweeted...that Bartolo Colon has signed with unknown team. Now as we all know if it's unknown it is then a mystery. I would like to dispel any rumors that Mr. Colon signed with MYSTERY TEAM.

So now that we have confirmation that Bartolo Colon did not sign with MYSTERY TEAM, it should be concluded that the team he did in fact sign with is a known team. We hope Mr. Colon has a successful physical and the known team can become known to all shortly.

We here at MYSTERY TEAM still want our fan base to know that we will continue working diligently on securing the type of talent that you have come to know and love. Keep up on all the league goings on and always be a fan.

Prince Fielder

It has come to our attention that Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle has reported several unnamed teams are interested in the Prince of baseball (Source). Now this does stipulate most of these nameless teams are in the National League.

While it is widely known that the MYSTERY TEAM may or may not reside in the National League, our comments on the matter were not disseminated to Drayer. However, due to our inability to sign King Albert, certainly one would ascertain that we should seek some sort of royalty on our team.

Prince Fielder will remain a coveted prize to any team in need of a boost in power and a solid first baseman. We here at MYSTERY TEAM can only hope for further baseless speculation from reporters on alleged interest that Scott Boras or "not Scott Boras" tells them.

The Mystery front office thanks you for your continued support and we hope to add additions in the future. Keep checking with us on this blog, like us on Facebook, and follow us on the Twitter.

Coco Crisp

The New Year has truly rung in with Jon Heyman of CBS sports reporting our alleged interest in free-agent outfielder Coco Crisp (http://jon-heyman.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/33714192/34168175).

Mr. Heyman notes the Orioles may be a strong candidate in the Crisp sweepstakes as well as a plausibility in the Cards and Cubs, but who is the very first team Mr. Heyman denotes? Clearly there are leaks in the MYSTERY TEAM front office to let such matters be made public to Mr. Heyman.

However as the most active and prolific front office in Major League Baseball, MYSTERY TEAM understood it was only a matter of time before our team was linked to another free-agent to kick off the new year.

We hope Mr. Crisp makes a swift and just choice in his team selection. Be rest assured Mystery fans that we will be awaiting diligently by our phones if this outfield commodity chooses to return our call.
