It's not like it used to be.
We grew up watching players come up with an organization, grow into manhood and then retire with the same team. Fewer players today are sticking with a club that long.
The enormous amount of money being made by modern players in big markets dictates that a player in a smaller market pursues free agency to cash in.
Such is the situation Prince Fielder finds himself in. He signed a $15.5 million dollar contract for 2011, but with the Brewers acquisition of Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum, they probably won't be able to pay Fielder what he can get on the open market.
Of course, that all depends on who pursues him. Every club doesn't have a need for Fielder.
Let's look at who might be interested.
