Rangers meet with Boras
The Rangers met with Scott Boras on Wednesday. They expected to talk with him because Boras represents left-handed reliever Michael Gonzalez.
Prince Fielder’s name also came up, as first reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. That is not surprising as well, even though Rangers officials keep saying they are not going to get involved with Fielder.
Fielder has not been a hot topic of conversation here at the Winter Meetings. Most of the attention has been directed toward Albert Pujols.
That would suggest there has been little interest in Fielder. Boras insisted, not surprisingly, that is not the case.
“I’ve spent the last three days sitting in a hotel room going through a flurry of teams making presentations how they could fit Prince into their team,” Boras said. “We’re going to take in all the information, go back to Prince, come up with an approach and further negotiations with teams.”
So Boras is saying there is great interest in Fielder. There are Rangers officials who say Fielder doesn’t fit into their budget.
