08:13 AM ET 02.21 | Chemistry class is underway in Lakeland. Maybe it was the way Prince Fielder showed up four days early for spring training. Or maybe it was the massive home run he hit during batting practice -- a ball that soared at least 450 feet, smashing into the trees high over the rightfield fence, shattering a branch and prompting Miguel Cabrera to scream: "You hit that alligator!" ... Or maybe it was the way Fielder and Cabrera seemed to build an instant connection. They were inseparable on their first day together. They played catch together and batted together and stretched together and did sprints together and at one point, after most of the clubhouse had cleared out, they stood arm in arm and took several pictures of each other.

Next thing you know they'll be brushing each other's hair and talking about who you want to ask you to the dance.

Is Michigan a Same-sex marriage State? If not, is florida? If florida is and Michigan is not then will they be recognized as such in Michigan?
This could end up to be quite the story.

As long as Cabrera stays on his side of the buffet table it could work out.
