10:56 AM ET 01.26 | New team, new look for Prince Fielder. He has dropped weight. He has dumped the dreadlocks in favor of a high-and-tight haircut. He will move into the featured No. 3 spot in the Rangers' order. "He's going to get the MVP," Adrian Beltre said Friday night during the club's awards gathering at the Gaylord Texan. "It's his time to win it. My job is to protect him so that he gets there."

Ruh Roh! When guys drop weight like that they have stopped putting something in to their bodies.

Interesting changes, will be fun to see if on-field production improves, or not?

In Prince's case, I'm guessing he stopped putting food in his.

Even though it took a while, its good to see a guy realizing he needs to get into better shape to sustain his career.
(unless 50 is right)

Not true, Prince himself said he only tried that for a few months several years ago. That whole thing got totally overblown, probably because it is so incongruous.
Maybe the shock of getting traded made Prince rethink his priorities...more power to him if he turns his weight situation around. I know the guy has a big build and will never look like Ichiro, but he's still been carrying a LOT of extra weight around since day 1 in the majors. It's not like he's an offensive lineman who is better off professionally carrying some extra pounds.

Overblown is an interesting adjective to use when talking about Mr. Fielder.........

Prince is vegetarian, not vegan.

Man, it's really nice to have a place to come and just get really good, accurate information from you.

I presume that was tongue in cheek?

I was going to say that since Prince is vegetarian, he does not eat cheeseburgers and would only be giving up Twinkies...

But lord only knows what is in a Twinkie...

Actually, I stand corrected. I think Indrid is right.
