VIDEO: Leyland reacts to Tigers' signing of Prince Fielder

Color Tigers manager Jim Leyland shocked, flabbergasted and downright floored that the Tigers ponied up $214 million to sign Prince Fielder this week, after even he said the Tigers had been wondering just a couple weeks ago if they'd had enough wiggle room, financially, to bring in another pitcher.
"This boggles my mind, to be honest with you," Leyland said at Thursday's news conference at Comerica Park.
"I was kidding somebody. I said, about three weeks ago, we were talking about maybe getting an extra pitcher, a bullpen guy or something, and we said well we didn’t know if we had the finances to get that guy. And I said, ‘I don’t know what happened in three weeks, but Little Caesar’s did good, evidently.'"

Here's video of a portion of that interview:
