Fielder: "I'm going to be better than my dad"

This is a measuring stick Prince Fielder could do without -- the inevitable comparisons to his father, Cecil Fielder. The subject raises questions of a broken family relationship the Milwaukee Brewers slugger would rather not talk about. And besides, Prince Fielder says with a twinge of disdain, the matter is clear. "I think we're just two different players," he said. "One, I think I'm going to be much better than him. And two, there's no real comparisons because I just try to be best in all aspects of my game." And then Fielder hints at the reason he is working to become known for more than just his big, bad bat. And that gets back to his father, who played much of his career as a designated hitter. "I just never want to settle to just be a DH," Fielder said.


I got this from my CBS Sportsline Fantasy page under Fielder's player news. I don't think I can link to it but I'll see if I can find this from another source. Nice to see that he doesn't want to just be a DH.


EDIT: Oops, this article is in the article tracker thread. My mistake. Should have looked there first!

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006
