Buster Olney was talking about Prince Fielder yesterday, and in doing so he quoted some unnamed executives who were waxing pessimistic on Fielder’s defense and body type. That got Fielder’s agent — Scott Boras — angry. He emailed Tom Haudricourt about it. In addition to taking issue with the assertions about Fielder on the merits, Boras said:
“It’s all hearsay. I’m tired of unnamed sources. No one put his name on
those comments . . . I’m tired of negative comments about players from unnamed sources.”
Boras then had to quickly sign off to take phone calls from five “mystery teams” and to respond to Jon Heyman’s “got anything for me?” text.
