Milwaukee Brewers Prince Fielder looks to the stands as he waits to bat in the second inning against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on September 5, 2011. UPI/Bill Greenblatt   But who could that be? The Baltimore Sun reported Friday night that Scott Boras and Prince Fielder were in the Baltimore/Washington area this month to meet with the owner(s) of a major league team in the area -- but not Peter Angelos. We're wracking our brains here to figure out who this team owner could have been. Can't be the Lerners; because the Nationals have Adam LaRoche at first base. Hmmm...via the Sun: In an attempt to market his top free-agent client to major league baseball’s biggest decision-makers, renowned player representative Scott Boras took slugging first baseman Prince Fielder on a brief tour this month to meet with several club owners. The duo did not meet with Orioles managing partner Peter Angelos. However, one industry source confi...

Prince Fielder Rumors: Friday

A player on the Nationals said the team was still in on Prince Fielder yesterday, even though GM Mike Rizzo recently said that Adam LaRoche will be their first baseman next year. Rival executives believe Prince will eventually end up in Washington, however. Here's are today's rumors about the best remaining unsigned free agent, with the latest news on top... Roch Kubatko...

Prince Fielder’s Weight Will Catch Up to Him

Did Prince Fielder make a New Year's Resolution to lose weight? Whether you run a major league franchise or a fantasy baseball team, Prince Fielder represents a risk to your team’s long term success. There has been much ado in the sports media recently about Prince Fielder perhaps joining a new team (or re-signing with his old club) as a free agent for the 2012 season. Armed...

Where Will Prince Fielder Land?

Happy New Year Everyone!  With not a whole lot to talk about today, I’ve got something to talk about.  Where will Prince Fielder land? It’s really surprising to see that Fielder has not signed yet.  We expected Fielder to ramp up his negotiations after Albert Pujols signed with the Los Angeles Angels. However, it appears that he has slowed down in his pursuit of a new team...

The Offensive Seattle Mariners

Even if they don't sign Prince Fielder, the Mariners can still expect to score a lot more runs in 2012. With a little bit better luck, a couple of bounce back seasons and full seasons from some of their young players, the club could come very close to being a middle-of-the-pack offense without any further roster additions. SeattleClubhouse shows you how inside.

SNYDER: Let's go crazy! Signing Prince Fielder would be a smash hit

ANALYSIS/OPINION Landing left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez was a big move for the Washington Nationals, addressing one of two major goals as outlined by general manager Mike Rizzo.

It's nearing crunch time for Fielder

HBT: It’s anyone’s guess as to where Prince Fielder will end up. But it’s January 2012, and probably closing in on crunch time for super-agent Scott Boras and his big fish client.

All of Free Agency Now Runs Through Scott Boras

It has been a quiet off-season so far for uber-agent Scott Boras.  Aside from some unnecessarily contentious negotiations between the Diamondbacks and Willie Bloomquist, the most successful (and reviled) agent in baseball hasn't really done anything.  But that is all about to change because as of today, Boras now has the entire free agent market by the short and curlies, which...

Hot Stove: Ethier, Oliver, Angels trades, Fielder

Here is the latest hot stove buzz circulating around MLB: The Dodgers could look to move OF Andre Ethier before the trade deadline. The Blue Jays agreed to sign LHP Darren Oliver to a one-year contract. Matt Garza‘s suitors now include the Tigers. The Angels have to trade Mark Trumbo and Kendry Morales, eventually. Prince Fielder recently visited with the Orioles.

Quick Hits: Madson, Phillies, Orioles, Hanrahan

It was on this day in 2009 that the Mets signed Jason Bay to a four-year, $66MM contract.  The deal was almost immediately panned as one of the worst moves of the 2009-10 offseason and time has proven the critics right; Bay has hit just .251/.337/.386 in two injury-plagued years in New York. Some news items as we head closer to 2012... Ryan Madson is "the loser of...
