It's time for the Mariners to make a bold statement about their future. It's time to sign Prince Fielder.
Let's assume that Ryan Braun is going to miss fifty games in 2012. That, folks, is not a judgement on his presumed innocence or guilt. The statement is merely based on the likelihood that Braun will beat the test result to avoid the downtime. Based on Braun's 7.7 fWAR last season, if you lose a third of that production, you are losing two and a half wins. Prince Fielder...

And that’s not to even put Fielder in the same...

The addition of Willingham, who turns 33 in February, would likely be for two-plus seasons and give the M's a right-handed bat they could use in left field or as a first base/DH type.
What it would not do is eliminate the team's quest to sign Prince...
While Prince Fielder entertains offers from much richer teams and Ryan Braun tries to talk his way out of a 50-game suspension, the Milwaukee Brewers have wasted no time with signing an alternative source of power.
As first reported by Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago, the club has come to terms on a three-year deal with Aramis Ramirez. The two sides have been flirting for quite some...
