(Prince Fielder is a pretty good bowler, too. Screencap via this TWCSports video.)
And so, we couldn't help but re-purpose the opening sentence of Bill Ladson's "Nationals unlikely to sign Prince at current price" report from Wednesday afternoon...
There is a "99 percent" chance that the Nationals will not sign free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder, according to a baseball source.

...and make our own headline, which reads just as ridiculously as that time in 2008 when we ran with a tip from an anonymous source who told us Dmitri Young was pregnant.
The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore reported that the Lerners met with Boras at the owner's meetings in Arizona Wednesday night. Wonder if Boras apologized to Lerner for shopping his generous offer around? Wonder if Ted Lerner said anything about his last, best offer still being on the table?
Meanwhile, a person who knows stuff and is usually right mentioned to us that Mike Rizzo is all hot and bothered about Yoennis Cespedes again (or maybe he would just like Scott Boras to think he is?) Again, your guess is as good as ours.
