Prince Fielder Free Agent News: 10 Ways He's a Horrible Fit for Chicago Cubs

Prince Fielder. Albert Pujols. Chicago Cubs. The three have been interchangeable since the beginning of free agency, and rumors have run rampant about which piece is a good fit for each other. Simply put, neither Pujols nor Fielder are a good fit for the Chicago Cubs.

Albert Pujols is 32 going on 34 (supposedly), and he has never been a serious part of the Cubs' free-agent discussion. Fielder has been put under a microscope for weeks and no one can get a good read on what the future holds for the left-handed power hitter. With the big-spending teams (Yankees, Red Sox and Phillies) seemingly set for years to come at first base, that does not bode well for Fielder's wishes of a monster contract.

While the Cubs have money to spend on free agency, it shouldn't be an excuse to blow money on a player who isn't vital to the future of the Cubs.
