The Orioles want Prince Fielder (updated)
Per Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, sources in the Orioles organization are indicating that the team wants to sign Prince Fielder next winter.
So, it's Baltimore's turn now to show up Ned Colletti in the off-season.
I miss the pre-McCourt days when the thought of the Dodgers signing a big free agent was more than just a distant fantasy? These days, we're fettered to an owner who has to dig between proverbial couch cushions to pay his current players.
McCourt will have to do a lot of digging if he expects to make payroll in June. It's a pathetic era for Dodger baseball when the owner has to call everyone in his black book for a quick and easy cash advance.
What an image! If you're a fan of Westerns, Tuco's frantic and circular search for Arch Stanton's grave in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly might come to mind.
