When I started this blog, he was about the most feared slugger in the game. He hit 50 home runs in 2007 as a 23 year old for the Milwaukee Brewers. It seem like there would be no end in sight. I definitely thought he was a 450 home run guy we were looking at.
Now, Prince Fielder is going to retire per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
He will retire – ironically – with 319 career home runs just like his father Cecil Fielder. Prince always seemed like an upstanding, good guy. We liked Prince Fielder. We will miss Prince Fielder; although he was not very good to us during fantasy ownership through some seasons.
It’s been a crazy week.
