08:12 AM ET 12.05 | Heading into the weekend, a report indicated Doug Melvin had not upped the offer for Prince Fielder, and, coming out of the weekend, the free agent had a list of suitors. With the Major League Baseball 2011 Winter Meetings about 36 hours away from starting, a big name has reportedly narrowed his choices of where he will play in 2012 and beyond down to three. First baseman and possible DH if he lands in the AL Prince Fielder has narrowed down his teams to three according to reports, with the three teams being the Toronto Blue Jays, the Texas Rangers, and his old team, the Milwaukee Brewers. Reports say that as of right now, the team that resides in the lead for his services -- the Jays.

You have to think he would play 1st for Texas. Pretty thin there. In Toronto, it depends what they'd do with Lind. The two could alternate, although AA made pretty clear that Encarnacion earned a spot in the lineup with his play last year. Who knows.

They wouldn't be thin there anymore.......;).........<rimshot>

He could help the Jays get into contention in the AL east. If they had some sort of pitching staff, with the signing of Fielder they would be real good!

He's said several times he won't DH. We shall see.

Awesome. He can go to Toronto and just disappear.

Cubs? They're solely concentrating on getting Pujols? Marlins seem ready to make another splash...maybe.

I have to wonder about this guy's mental state when he hates his dad so much that he won't even consider playing for any team that his dad played for. That sounds crazy to me. Not that my team would need him or want him but if you were going to need a guy like him would you not at least wonder?
