Congrats to Prince
There aren't words for what I think of Prince Fielder since he's
stepped up in the past week or so. People have talked about his loss of
power, his lack of leadership and a whole lot of other demeaning
qualities, but I feel like this week's performance tells everyone
that's disparaged him to sit down and shut up. While the rest of the
team is slumping and seemingly ok with losing out on the playoffs,
Prince pretty much single-handedly gave the team power.
And for his effort, he was named NL Player of the Week and received an engraved Swiss timepiece (no, I'm not kidding).
Look at the numbers:
12 hits, 6 doubles, 11 RBI
6 runs scored
Total Bases: 27
