The National League Central just became a tighter race when an expected free agency announcement came down that Prince Fielder was leaving Milwaukee and signed with Detroit for nine years. While it seems as though every team in the division has a lot of questions, with Albert Pujols and Fielder out of the picture, NL pitchers should breathe a little easier.

On this Pressbox Podcast, I spoke with Justin Hull. He’s the afternoon host at WSCO Radio in Appleton/Green Bay and I’ve been on his show several times during the baseball season to talk Cardinals/Brewers baseball. We talk about what the division will look like and if these nine and ten year deals that Pujols and Fielder signed are really bad deals for those teams.

Justin and I also think that in the long run the Cardinals and Brewers will be OK and suffer no long term fallout for not signing these marquee players.
