Since piggybacking off my reporters is what I do best — just ask them — I decided to break down Dan's list and examine why I think each player would or would not be a good signing for the Orioles. These are purely my opinions and should not be taken as an indication of the likelihood of any player's coming to Baltimore. Because you're busy people and brevity is not my strong suit, we'll break this into three installments of four players each. Here goes:Prince Fielder, 1B, Milwaukee Brewers: Much like Dan, I don't see Fielder ending up with the Orioles for a variety of reasons. But even if Fielder for some reason had his heart set on Baltimore — maybe he really likes the cartoon bird; he wouldn't be the first player — I just don't see him working out well with the Orioles. We know he'll be looking for a huge contract, both in terms of length and money — perhaps as much as eight years and $200 million. The chances that the Orioles, or any other team, actually get what they paid for from Fielder over an eight-year deal of that size are virtually nonexistent. He's just 27 and thus entering what should be his prime years, but players' prime years don't last until they're 35. Yes, that's speaking in generalities, but your general major league star also isn't listed (perhaps generously) at 275 pounds. Field has been remarkably durable so far, having played in 157 games or more each of the past six seasons, but his body type — to say nothing of simple luck — leads me to believe he'll break down before his contract is up. Additionally, there's nothing to lead me to believe the Orioles will be contenders for the next few seasons, when Fielder's performance is peaking. Having the big guy in orange and black, regularly hitting majestic home runs onto the Camden Yards flag court, would be a lot of fun, but one power hitter can help a team only so much. It doesn't make sense for the Orioles to guarantee Fielder either the money or the years he's looking for in a new contract.
