    Default I'm calling 51




    In 1991, in a move that nobody saw coming, the Detroit Tigers signed free agent Cecil Fielder to be their first baseman, after hitting 38 HR's the year before.

    In 2012, in a move that nobody saw coming, the Detroit Tigers signed free agent Prince Fielder to be their first baseman, after hitting 38 HR's the year before.

    In his first 1,000 games, Cecil Fielder hit 232 homeruns.
    Through 1,000 games, Prince Fielder has 232 homeruns.

    Cecil Fielder is black.
    Prince Fielder is black.

    I could go on and on...

    I know we're all tired of the father/son nonsense, but some of these similarities are getting creepy. He's going to hit 51 this year. He certainly has the power to do it.

    I also read that the last six times that the Kentucky Wildcats won the NCAA basketball tournament, the New York Yankees won the world series the same year. Does that mean that it's gonna happen this year too? It could.

    Prince will be at the mercy of the guy and guys hitting after him..... If they do well, he will do really well. 51? yes it's possible.

    Prince can't stand Cecil, there was no way he was going to wear #45.

    Both their names are Fielder and neither is noted as a particularly good fielder.

    Early in their careers, both were named "Most Promising Prospect" by the American Grocers' Association.

    Both were named after legendary artists, Cecil the famed director and Prince the Machiavelli guy.

    Ironic. That would be like Brandon Inge being called Brandon Slugger.

    Let's just hope that the similarities end there and that Prince hits more than 90 HR and gets at least a few more than the 313 he has to get to catch up with papa.
