12/16 More Fielder talk
FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says it’s down to the Cubs vs. the Mariners for free agent Prince Fielder. Rosenthal says sources tell him the Cubs don’t want to give Fielder a 10-year contract but may try to lure the slugger with a six- or seven-year deal. A friend of Fielder’s told Rosenthal that the first baseman is “not in a rush” to settle on a new team. More rumors expected soon.
