With Albert Pujols off the market it is now Prince Fielder's time to sign—and earn his own mega-deal. Scott Boras will undoubtedly press to net his client Fielder something in the neighborhood of the 10 years and $254 million that Pujols received from the Angels.
At this juncture, it seems that teams are waiting for Boras' demands to ease up and Fielder's price tag to drop, as ESPN.com's Buster Olney tweeted on Wednesday. In other words, no one's eager to sink the kind of money and years into Fielder that Arte Moreno just did with Phat Albert.
Market corrections aside, though, Fielder remains the best available free-agent bat. He will go somewhere and he will cost a ton. Bill Madden of the New York Daily News writes that Boras just needs to play his usual game of greasing up the market for his clients enough for one owner to splurge and be, as Madden describes them, "One Dumb Owner."
Who might that lone dummy be? Here are the latest rumors on the ten teams in the hunt for Prince Fielder and their respective chances of signing him.
