Fielder dropped some pounds over off-season
Prince Fielder came into camp noticeably slimmer after receiving a new contract. The Brewers said he is much more cheerful and easy-going after dropping the weight and with his new two-year contract. He vows to keep off the weight in 2009. It is unknown how much he weighs right now because he doesn't like scales. Video and article of Fielder here.
I'm feeling pretty good about Prince this year. I think having some economic security right now will help Fielder concentrate on only baseball. He said that he has been very happy. I think his stats will translate into what he did his rookie year.
