And now the moment you’ve been waiting for: Prince Fielder naked

26 Comments

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Prince Fielder is going to appear in ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue.” And, because this is all about publicity and buzz and stuff for that magazine, they’d be remiss in not releasing teaser photos. So here you go:

I’m sure lots of dudes with way worse bodies than Fielder’s will go on about how Fielder shouldn’t be posing nude and stuff, but if America means anything, it means the right to be hypocritical and lame. But please, if you’re gonna make some negative comment about old Prince here, please do us a favor and post your BMI next to your comment.

Seriously though: he looks better sans uniform than I figured he would. Maybe credit ESPN for some airbrushing and flattering angles, but this ain’t bad. If anything it shows you that MLB uniforms and the undershirts and stuff they wear aren’t the most flattering outfits around.

Yankees acquire A.J. Cole from the Nats

The New York Yankees have acquired reliever A.J. Cole from the Washington Nationals for cash considerations.

Cole was supposed to be the Nats’ fifth starter this year but that didn’t work out too well. He pitched in four games for the Nats, starting two, to the tune of a 13.06 ERA, having given up six home runs in 10.1 innings. That’s . . . something.

Don’t get too used to Cole on the New York roster, as this seems like one of those “give us an arm” for a couple of days deals, after which Cole will be DFA’d and will either accept an assignment to Scranton or be cut loose. Such is life at the fringes for a guy who is out of minor league options.
