When do we worry about Prince?

Postby lastingsgriller » Fri May 21, 2010 11:28 am

I have had Prince Fielder on my team since the day he came into this league, so I have become accustomed to the early season struggles and reaped the benefits in June/July..

but I am honestly starting to get worried here.. it's almost the end of May here and still not BOOMSHAKALAKA!!! any reason why this year might be different from the past?

Chill out and don't make any rash decisions. He does have fantastic ratios for a "slump", and still has 6 home runs. Not great, but I am not worried at all yet.

Can't these dime a dozen threads get put in the Venting section so they don't clog this more used forum up?

Well.. I though about that.. but I'm not really venting here.. the year after prince hit 50 he had a very off year. is there any corolation between this year and that year. I am wondering if any has more insight than I do as to the reason for this. is there something different? is there someone that watches alot of Brewer baseball? is there someone that does a lot of looking into the the "deeper" numbers that may see something..

wanted to get the cafe's opinion on whether this is just early season prince or if something is different. thats what the cafe is here for.

so, no.. this doesn't belong in the venting forum.

He was complaining about playing with a hurt hand at the start of the season... but he's doing fine this month. I'd expect him to heat up as the year goes along. Prince isn't worrying me just yet. A few multi-homer games like he's capable of, and this wouldn't even be an issue.

Did anybody open this thread thinking this was about the man formerly known as the man formerly known as Prince?
