Texas Rangers: A breakdown of Prince Fielder’s quietly great start

An American League leading 54 hits, top 20 in the league in RBI, and second in the league with a .348 batting average. No I am not talking about Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. I am talking about Prince Fielder. The big man has put forth some remarkably loud numbers in a seemingly quiet fashion so far in 2015. Fielder has placed himself among the MLB’s top hitters this year, but...

Hanley Ramirez Looking To Break Out Versus Wandy Rodriguez, Rangers

Hanley Ramirez is hoping a familiar face will help him get out of his worst slump of the season. The Boston Red Sox left fielder doesn’t have an RBI this month, but he probably feels good seeing Wandy Rodriguez on the mound as the Red Sox complete a three-game series with the Texas Rangers. Ramirez is 10-for-24 in his career against Rodriguez with a home run. Shane Victorino,...

Return of the… Prince?! Fielder Resurgent for Texas Rangers

When Prince Fielder signed his 9-year, $214-million deal with the Detroit Tigers, fans of the game immediately crowned him as the best power hitter in baseball. At that time, fans thought that Miguel Cabrera would be the protection in the lineup for Fielder, but what ended up happening was the other way around. Cabrera won the Triple Crown and Fielder became his protection in the...

Bear or Bull: Full Speed Ahead for Avisail?

Miggy Jr. Fantasy sleeper. Future stud. Prince Fielder look-alike. These are just some of the terms and phrases that have been used to describe Avisail Garcia over the past few years. Ok, maybe not the last one. I'm pretty sure that was just a poor attempt at making an excuse for certain indiscretions by Fielder's ex-wife. But the other terms have been thrown around for awhile now...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles — First Basemen

View image | Why should I bother reading this? Catchers are one thing, but first base is the dumping ground for guys that can’t handle the glove. At least that’s the general consensus. With catchers we looked at all of the current regulars with at least 2000 innings. Since first basemen play more often we can up the ante to 3000 innings. One of things you...

One of the best parts about baseball is that not every player looks the same. There’s not exactly a prototype for how a player is supposed to look. Sure, it doesn’t hurt to be built like Mike Trout or Giancarlo Stanton, but then there’s also guys like Pablo Sandoval or Prince Fielder who have performed at the highest level despite not looking like American Gladiators.

Billy Butler Hits Ball Out of Minute Maid Park

486 feet. Officially, that’s the longest home run ever hit at Minute Maid Park in Houston…a solo shot by Prince Fielder back in 2011. Billy Butler’s blast Monday night against the Astros might just have it beat. While the official distance hasn’t been tallied (yet), I’m guessing the Oakland A’s slugger’s bomb landed somewhere outside of Austin. And, yeah, before you...
