But who could that be?
The Baltimore Sun reported Friday night that Scott Boras and Prince Fielder were in the Baltimore/Washington area this month to meet with the owner(s) of a major league team in the area -- but not Peter Angelos. We're wracking our brains here to figure out who this team owner could have been. Can't be the Lerners; because the Nationals have Adam LaRoche at first base. Hmmm...via the Sun:
In an attempt to market his top free-agent client to major league baseball’s biggest decision-makers, renowned player representative Scott Boras took slugging first baseman Prince Fielder on a brief tour this month to meet with several club owners.
The duo did not meet with Orioles managing partner Peter Angelos. However, one industry source confirmed that Boras and Fielder were in the “Baltimore-Washington area,” meaning they likely spoke with representatives of the Lerner family, principal owners of the Washington Nationals.

Only a matter of time now until Boras gives up hope for a long-term deal and takes up the Lerners on a shorter-term, big-dollar deal? Still shooting for Prince, eh?
