Fielder Guesses That 2011 Will Be Final Year In Milwaukee

In a fairly peculiar move, Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder told TBS in an interview that "this is probably my last year" playing with Milwaukee. The Brewers are currently in first place and are legitimate contenders to win the World Series this season, making the timing of the comments particularly odd.

Fielder is one of the elite players on the market for first basemen this season, and is arguably the top player on the entire market, so obviously his intentions are big news these days. He later told Colin Fly of the AP that nothing has changed regarding his status with the Brewers and the team's current state in general, but he's already unnecessarily put the spotlight on the club as they prepare for an incredibly important two-month span for the franchise.
