cubs definitely in mix for prince, who at 27 makes more sense than pujols for them. needs: 1B, LH power, cleanup hitter.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 12, 2011
Not sure how much this advances things. But in a subsequent tweet, Heyman says the Mariners are the most serious competitor, with the Rangers and Blue Jays "thinking hard about it". http://twitter.com/#!/JonHeymanCBS/statuses/146273794833657858 I hope the Cubs get him. Fielder's gotta figure that it would be more lucrative to be a baseball player in Chicago than it would be in Seattle. And neither team was a contender last year.
