Prince Fielder

  1. Greetings from Day 3 of the Winter Meetings

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    In N Out

    In-N-Out in Dallas?  Who knew?  Baseball writers, that’s who. You could put them on an island in some far flung sea and they’d be able to find an In-N-Out Burger.  It’s just what they do. I felt obligated to go anyway. The lobby was getting to be too much for me last night.  The first…

  2. UPDATE: Mariners planning to meet with Prince Fielder tonight

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:55 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    UPDATE: Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Mariners plan to meet with free agent first baseman Prince Fielder tonight. 6:45 p.m. EST update: Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik characterized Bowden’s report as “misleading,” MLB.com’s Greg Johns reports. But then Zduriencik admitted that he’d “prefer to be low key on any discussion,” suggesting that he…

  3. NBC SportsTalk: What about Jimmy Rollins and Prince Fielder

    Dec 6, 2011, 9:35 PM EDT

    National League first baseman Fielder of the Brewers watches three-run home run in fourth inning during Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix

    More from this evening’s SportsTalk show.  Whither Jimmy Rollins and Prince Fielder?

  4. Report: Brewers giving up on re-signing Prince Fielder

    Dec 5, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    National League first baseman Fielder of the Brewers watches three-run home run in fourth inning during Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix

    ESPN’s Buster Olney chimes in with the news a lot of Milwaukee fans have been dreading hearing: Brewers indicating to others they are pretty much out on Prince Fielder, and are moving on. Moving on to whom is an open question. While the Brewers are believed to be willing to spend $20 million per year to keep Fielder, they’re…

  5. The Orioles are interested in Prince Fielder

    Dec 5, 2011, 1:07 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Corey Hart, Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks

    Dan Duquette said a little while ago that the Orioles are interested in Prince Fielder.  He was cautious about it though and told fans not to get their hopes up. I hate it when the GM takes my line. Every year the Orioles seem to fall into the same pattern with free agents. They talk to…

  6. Nationals not interested in Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols

    Last month some reports linked Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols to the Nationals, but that can safely be ruled out now. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post spoke to a Nationals source who classified the team’s alleged interest as “not even a good lie.” Washington already has $8 million committed to Adam LaRoche at first…

  7. The Dodgers are talking long-term deal with Clayton Kershaw

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:23 AM EDT

    Buster Olney tweeted early this morning that the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw are talking about a long term deal. It’s not serious yet — just the greetings and preliminaries — but this a signing the Dodgers need to make.  Stay out of the Prince Fielder derby if you want to, but locking up the future…

  8. Previewing this week’s winter meetings

    Dec 4, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    Expect the rumors to come fast and furious as the league’s top executives converge on Dallas. The winter meetings officially start Monday, but the general managers will arrive and start talking among themselves this afternoon. With so much of the free-agent talent congregated at a few select positions, there could well be more trades than usual,…

  9. Who will be the mystery team for Jose Reyes?

    Dec 2, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    jose reyes wide getty

    It’s hard to imagine Jose Reyes joining the Marlins for a relatively light $90 million over six years. Jon Heyman’s proposed $80 million over five years deal from the Mets isn’t all that special either. So, who might yet get involved in the bidding for the shortstop? Red Sox – Boston may not have as…

  10. The Marlins have discussed Prince Fielder

    Dec 2, 2011, 4:03 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder walks back to the dugout after grounding out to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 8th inning in Game 6 of the MLB NLCS baseball playoffs in Milwaukee

    Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi write today that the Marlins have “discussed Prince Fielder internally and done background work on his makeup.”  They add that “some club officials are indeed enamored of the idea” of putting Fielder in the same lineup as Mike Stanton. This is somewhat tepid, I suppose, inasmuch as it doesn’t sound…

  11. Tom Ricketts: signing Pujols or Fielder is Theo’s call

    Nov 30, 2011, 9:09 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein speaks at a news conference at Wrigley Field in Chicago

    Are the Cubs really looking at Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols? Are they just trying to drive up the price for St. Louis?  Are they looking to go big or are they going to cast out every player who isn’t nailed down and start from scratch? We’ve heard all of these things in the past…

  12. Giants unlikely to make a “big splash” for a hitter

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:32 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v San Francisco Giants

    The Giants held a conference call this afternoon to discuss the contract extensions for GM Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy. Asked about their offseason agenda by John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Sabean said he doesn’t plan on making a “big splash” to upgrade the team’s lackluster offense. While it’s not a surprise…

  13. Yes, the Mariners are going after Prince Fielder

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Corey Hart, Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks

    Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik confirmed to MLB.com today that the M’s are, indeed, going to make a play for Prince Fielder. With all requisite caution, of course: “There’s no question we could use a big bat in the middle of our lineup,” said the M’s general manager, “but where is your limitation and threshold? We’ll go…

  14. Nationals’ Chris Marrero suffers torn hamstring in winter ball

    Nov 29, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Florida Marlins v Washington Nationals

    Nationals first baseman Chris Marrero tore his left hamstring while playing in the Dominican winter league earlier this month and could miss the entire season, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com. Marrero repeatedly said that he doesn’t expect to miss all of 2012, but Ladson reports that the hamstring was torn off the bone and…

  15. The Cubs are entering the Pujols-Fielder sweepstakes

    Nov 29, 2011, 6:12 AM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    There was some question as to whether they’d get involved in big free agent game hunting, but according to Ken Rosenthal they are: the Cubs are pursuing both Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols. Well, either/or. They wouldn’t sign both of them because that would be silly. I think the why of it is more interesting…

  16. Nationals pursue Prince Fielder for first base

    Nov 28, 2011, 6:18 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    While the Nationals have long maintained that Adam LaRoche would reclaim the first-base job in 2012, they’ve always been looked at as potential bidders for Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder anyway. From Ken Rosenthal comes word that the Nationals have indeed engaged in talks with Fielder, but that those talks hit a roadblock today. Fielder, coming off a…

  17. Brewers hire Johnny Narron to replace Dale Sveum as hitting coach

    Nov 28, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    johnny narron rangers

    Dale Svuem taking over as the Cubs’ manager left the Brewers without a hitting coach and today they filled the position with Johnny Narron, whose brother Jerry is Milwaukee’s bench coach. Narron has lots of experience coaching and managing in the Brewers’ minor-league system and most recently served as the Rangers’ assistant hitting coach, working…

  18. The Cubs, White Sox are getting inquires about relievers Marmol, Santos

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    The White Sox are in a bit of a transitional period.  And a lot of people assumed that the Cubs would try to make a play for Prince Fielder or Albert Pujols or something like that. Maybe it’s more likely that both teams will simply be sellers. Here’s Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune: According…

  19. UPDATE: Loney/Broxton for Fielder trade debunked

    Dec 6, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    UPDATE: Since this rumor initially surfaced, it has been shot down by Steve Henson of Yahoo! Sports, and most importantly, by Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. And Colletti should know, because if this was a legitimate offer, he would have taken it in a heartbeat. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports hears that the Brewers approached…

  20. Brewers GM: “We’re not shopping Prince Fielder”

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    With one season remaining on Prince Fielder’s contract the assumption has been that the Brewers will look to trade him this offseason, but general manager Doug Melvin told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that “we’re not shopping Prince” and “I’d like to keep him.” Of course, regarding a new contract Melvin also said that the…
