Prince avoiding dad's former teams?


08:37 AM ET 11.28 | Some have an interesting theory on Prince Fielder's possible destination: That because of his well-known alienation from his father, Cecil, Fielder wouldn't want to play on one of his dad's former teams and expose himself to more comparisons. That would rule out the Tigers, Blue Jays, Yankees, Indians and Angels.

Way to hold a grudge, fatty. Cecil has no involvement with any of these clubs anymore -- and hasn't for more than a decade -- and yet you refuse to even listen to offers from them?

You're a bigger idiot than your gambling father.

Good thing the Tribe has learned in advance that Fielder wouldn't be willing to play for them because his pop did -- they were just about to offer him an 8yr/$215m contract. Guess they'll have to focus their efforts on Pujols now.

Didn't realize there was a "well-known" sappy soap opera between these two, you think they could just break bread(and Pasta) and straighten it out

Ridiculous! Who cares if he played on those teams, they are willing to make you very rich.

DETROIT do not need him!

I doubt most Indians or Angels fans even remember that Cecil played for those teams at one time.

I don't pretend to know what's going on in that family but it does appear to me that Prince himself is far from perfect and holds his dad to standards that he don't live up to himself sometimes. Holding grudges can be bad for your mental health.

Stay in Milwaukee!

So what they're saying here is that Prince should eat some bacon.

That is my understanding.

November 28, 2011  11:10 AM ET

He 100% won't go to one of these teams..... unless they offer him slightly more money than any other teams.

November 28, 2011  11:15 AM ET

I bet his mind can be changed for between 18 and 25 million one dollar bills per season. If not then he is dumber than I could ever have imagined.

Stupidest T&R ever. Fat boy will play for whoever pays him the most. Still think it will be the Cubs. Epstein is doubtless dying to make a splash. Most teams have got to be wary of Prince's weight - sooner or later it will start breaking down his body.

Stay in Milwaukee!

Agreed! If he goes to the Cubs, he is just going there to die in their non-contention pasture. Besides the Brewers, I wouldn't mind seeing him in Texas. That way they can DH him once his body goes and he isn't the greatest fielder as it is. Imagine that line-up with Kinsler, Cruz, Hamilton, Prince, Young,!

RUN Forrest/Theo/Jed RUN!!!! as far away from this **** prima donna as fast as you possibly can without looking back. Cubs needs total overhaul from Class A Short Season to the Friendly Confines and this lardass has the body type that will NOT age well. RUN!!!!! Let the kids play and put that money into the draft, international scouting (just opening an academy in the D.R. to run year round), and player development. He's not worth $20 - $25 M/per and he will languish in a line-up without the protection of Braun and others. Best place for him ... Milwaukee with the rest of that young and hungry team, but there's no "i" in team and **** is all about the 'i"

DETROIT do not need him!

I think you meant to type "Detroit ain't need him."

A story about "some have an interesting theory"???

Here's the translation into what the supposed reporter is actually saying..."I don't really have any inside information on anything. So I will make up an issue about Prince Fielder, and since I have nothing or anybody to quote...I am just saying that some have an interesting theory"

How much do these morons get paid?

November 28, 2011  12:26 PM ET

What a sick dude....either grow up or stop the idiocy.
Your Dad made some horrible mistakes,so now you are holding the teams
he played on responsible.

Think of what a horrible person this jerk has to be,his dad gambled globs of money away,
so this creep thinks the best thing for him to do is not to forgive & try to make his dad a better person thus setting a humanitarian example for his kids but to be even a bigger assh*** than his poppa.

He has to be one of the biggest jerks in the sports.

Way to hold a grudge

you shouldn't hold grudge againts nobody, why would care or worry about your father's past?
rather make a new beginning with the same teams and whatever happens happens!!
