Found January 04, 2012 on Nationals Enquirer:
"Probably the best I can say, he’s a combination of Henry Kissinger and Frank Howard. He’s got brute strength power. He’s a diplomat in the locker room." (Scott Boras, via Nationals Journal, 1/2/2012) Ahem. And so, while you're sitting around wailing and gnashing teeth over a Tweet about Prince Fielder signing, enjoy the video above, when Prince Fielder tried to get into the Dodgers locker room after getting beaned by the immortal Guillermo Mota with 2 outs in the 9th inning of a 2009 Dodgers-Brewers blowout (17-4, LA). That's our guy right there! Unfortunately for Nats fans, there's still no done deal, obviously. Safe to say at this point: nobody really knows what's happening, except maybe Boras. Between the bluffing of Boras (is he waiting out Darvish and the Rangers, or isn't he? Pffft!) and Lerner's silence, your guess is as good as Prince's. "Hearing" (air quotes!) again from a person who is right more than he is wr...

Prince Fielder, Opt-Outs, And A Contract I Would Support

It’s no secret that I’ve been generally opposed to the idea of giving Prince Fielder a long term, big money contract. I think his value on the field is fairly overrated and the side benefits of having him on the team are mostly made up and unsupported by facts. In general, I’d rather the team spread their money around to fill multiple holes and upgrade the roster rather than...

Should The Nationals Sign Prince Fielder?

One offseason removed from signing Jayson Werth to a 7 year, $126 million contract, the Washington Nationals are looking poised to make another splash. They are going strong in the bidding for Prince Fielder, and considering that they are reworking their television contract to get at least double the amount of money they are currently receiving ($26 million/year), they certainly...

Mariners solidify roster needs as Prince looms

While Mariners fans continue clamoring for news on Prince Fielder, GM Jack Zduriencik and his staff will continue pursuing other avenues to improve the club as well.

Mets Face A Difficult Start

It won’t take long to figure out the 2012 Mets. The team entering spring training without expectations – at least positive ones – face a difficult schedule despite 13 games at Citi Field and ten on the road. That includes everybody in their division, so we’ll have an idea of how they’ll stack up against the NL East. I looked at their schedule this afternoon and if things...

Fielder Seeking Opt-Out Clause?

Yesterday we learned from Scott Boras that "there's a lot of passengers on the PF Flyer," and Prince Fielder is best described as a combination of Henry Kissinger and Frank Howard (courtesy of Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post).  The latest on the PF Flyer... Many in the industry believe Boras seeks an opt-out clause for Fielder, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX...

Looking Back: The Brien Taylor Story

Most of us spent the holidays with friends and family, celebrating the New Year and making resolutions we probably won’t keep. Brien Taylor was busy celebrating his 40th birthday the day after Christmas, two decades after the Yankees made him the first overall pick in the 1991 draft. “I’ve been through 28 drafts,” said Scott Boras back in 2006, “and Brien Taylor, still...

Cubs Trade Boosts Nats’ Chances for Fielder

In a move that increases the Nationals’ odds of signing Prince Fielder — thereby decreasing the Phillies’ chances of winning the NL East so comfortably next season – the Padres on Friday traded mega-prospect first baseman Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs for righthanded fireballer Andrew Cashner and slap-hitting 19-year-old South Korean outfielder Kyung-Min Na. (See CSNChicago...
