you miss read what i said. Pujols is in another tier by himself... that is obvious. however i dont think i would take Howard, Tiex or Morneau over Prince. all their ceilings are close and Prince is 5 years younger then the rest or close to it.

i just dont think people are giving Fielder the credit or value that he carries. much like Gonzo.


I agree. I would easily take Prince over those guys you mentioned right now. He's a beast.

Not sure if you guys saw it but when he scored the game winning run against Capps, man he's got a lot of fire to go along with all that talent. He's gonna be a stud.


I personally didn't like that. It reminded me why I don't watch basketball.

I think projecting 40HRs is probably a bit ambitious. He prides himself on being a complete hitter and not just a power hitter. He doesn't swing for the fences every time up. He's more a .300 hitter, 30 HR guy despite his amazing power.

That was a horrible trade. You are going to regret it.


lol thats funny. at the time i made the trade, i doubt you would have said that.


Actually I probably would have said it wasn't a good trade since Rolen is a decent 3B and Fielder's ceiling is higher than Teixiera's.


I said the same thing about The Prince of Power and Teix having the same ceiling halfway thru last year and i was laughed at. I wonder if they are still laughing now. ...Still, i cant get over how far Teix has fallen. i dont htink anyone saw that coming

i dont think he's really fallen per say i mean he still put up respectable #'s last year after a slow start....

he's still young so he could have a few more career years too.

Prince on the other hand has imense power, he has a large compact frame and he just launches bombs all over the field. the kid(he's only 23) is gonna be good, and really good for a long time to come imo.

.287 10hr 29rbi 22r already for the early going.... 40+ this year is not far fetched as people think.
