He just lined one off of Hamels pitching arm for a single, so another reason for a bunch of people to hate him! Hamels had to leave the game.

The shot off of Hamels was a rocket line drive. His next AB was an opposite field 3 run double. Both were off of lefties. Looks like he is coming around.

There is always a player or two that gets selected a couple rounds later than a guy with comparable numbers. Usually this means that people think player A has a good chance of improving his numbers while Player B has a good chance of failing back a little. I would say that is the case here. Most people don't think AGone is will quite match his numbers from last year. Either way, Fielder will be alright just don't expect him to hit 50 HR.


Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think most people bring up the veggie diet as a joke. But for the record 50 to 34 HRs is a pretty big jump IMO. Your talking about a 32% decrease in HR production. Like most people have said this comes down to expectations. Some people have most likely over valued him after that 50 HR season...

QFT. The difference between 50 and 34 is comparable to the difference between 30 HR and 20, which everyone agrees is a HUGE difference.

I wasn't trying to say that there isn't a difference between 34 HR and 50 HR. Yes, it is a big difference but you really shouldn't expect 50 HR maybe 40 but not 50. My main point was that there was a reason he got select higher than AGone and that we shouldn't be worried about a couple weeks. He will come around.

Ok so he can't hit homeruns but he can hit starting pitchers and knock them out of the game

I see Fielder as a legit consistent 40 HR hitter, he may get to 50 again at some point but I doubt it. In all fairness he was absolutely robbed of a grand slam by Reed Johnson, which would have given him a much better stat line.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Traded Fielder along with Paplebon for Pujols :-)


(sorry, I had to say that somewhere, lol)

But in all honesty, I see Fielder having about the same stats he did last year, which are good but many people were expecting him to have better numbers. He is getting a lot of walks and has hit the ball well this season, so the HR's will start coming soon enough. I do worry he may be walked a tad too much though.
