MLB  > Milwaukee Brewers  > 6 Reasons why MIlwaukee is better off without Prince Fielder
September 23, 2011, 01:14 PM
Prince Fielder's untimely comments have officially been blown out of proportion, not to the surprise of Milwaukee Brewers fans.
The fact that Fielder would bring up such a sensitive topic when his own team is in the midst of a deeply competitive pennant race won't bode well with Brewers fans, either.
Will his comments derail what was once a steamrolling Milwaukee ballclub off the path of success? Is there still an outside chance of Fielder re-signing with the Brewers in 2012? Is he still a vegetarian?
These are all merely insignificant topics for discussion at this point.
Maybe I'm simply speaking out of utter disgust, but here are six reasons the Brewers are better off without Fielder in 2012.

I'm thinking it's his size and weight. This has been a touchy subject for awhile. He's a big guy, and that could translate to back, hip, knee....problems. Personally, I'd like to see the Brewers get another 1 or 2 left handed batters, and take the rest of the money to pay for the starting pitching. I'm interested in the end product, not the players themselves.

Looks like the players themselves got the end product your interested in. A div. champ. and a trip to the playoffs. And now you are wanting to get rid of players, bring new players in, and the effin playoffs haven't started. Jeez!!

We already have the players, but we can't afford a $200 million player, which is what Fielder will demand. SO, that being as it may, we have no choice, so the team needs to do what's best financially, and that is resigning it's pitchers, and getting MORE lefty bats....these are far more important at this time.

At the rate your posting, what, every 5 minutes or so, you should have no problem being the most posted individual here. I have no intention of dethroning you! Besides, "American cricket" will be over soon, and the whole place will be yours during the off season! LOL
