I haven’t heard any mention of this in the mainstream media, but word on the virtual street is that Prince Fielder is eating meat again.

During a recent chat, someone with the screen name “Prince Fielder” jokingly asked ESPN’s Keith Law,Which vegatables (sic) are good with ketchup and mustard?” To which Law replied, I was told Fielder’s back on the carnivorous side of the fence. And welcome back, Prince. Life’s better over here.”

First of all, Keith, you’re not fooling anybody. Eat all the meat you want, that won’t change the fact that you are a Jane Austen fan.

Personally, I was excited to hear about Prince’s vegetarianism. I offered him some tips on living a meat-free life and I defended his diet when people were attributing his home run decline to a lack of protein. Now I’m bummed that he’s gone back to the dark meat side.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Fielder’s inability to keep his hands off the dead animals is indicative of a player and a team without discipline. Milwaukee showed some patience at the plate in their Game 3 win over Jamie Moyer, but as soon as Game 4 rolled around they were back to hack, hack, hackin’ away. I’m not aware of any vegetarians on Philadelphia’s roster, but you can rest assured that if Pat Burrell ever decided to go veggie, he’d go all the way. Every time a meat craving attacked, he’d patiently foul it off until he saw the salad he wanted and then — wham! — he’d devour that salad until it was back, back, back, gone!

    Sarah, who knows that Coley knows she loves Jane Austen and knows that he knows she knows he knows, refuses to rise to the bait.

  2. Prince looks like a birthday cake kinda guy.
