I traded Fielder for Hamels, Atkins and Dye at the trade deadline in my keeper in an effort to win this year... That was a bad trade but at least I am in the finals right? Right? :-o

That makes 50 for Cecil's son.
What are his chances of getting the NL MVP award? Do the Brewers have to make the playoffs for him to have any chance?

I tend to think so. I believe the same goes for Matt Holliday and Jimmy Rollins if either player's team squeaks by into the playoffs. Definitely, all 3 are big-time contributors down the stretch and leading their squads into contention.

As for Prince, I'm glad to have him, M-Cab, and Rollins anchoring my infield in my dynasty league. I thought he had the potential to bust out for 40 HR this season, like a number of folks here and I was on the optimistic end of the spectrum that he could turn in a Ryan Howard-like year, but at any rate, he's been flat-out brilliant. 50 HR's at age 23, wow. Even his old man had to make a stopover in Japan to turn into a good slugger, let alone, a great one.

He's now the youngest player to hit 50 HR in a season (Willie Mays was the youngest prior to Prince). With a number of games left, he could surpass his father's mark (51) and could conceivable catch A-Rod. I'm still at a loss to understand why he's getting almost no press or hype for this incredible feat. I thought he was underrated coming into 2007 and he may STILL be underrated in 2008, if it's possible to be underrated after hitting 50 HR.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
