    Prince Fielder denounced his vegiterianism and purchased the contract of Hamburger.

    He was quoted saying, “It was a delicious pick up”.

  6. I guess him and the Astros must’ve had some sort of beef.

    How bad must a player feel when he is being demoted to AAA from the Astros? Not even good enough to make it on a team that is struggling to even touch the 50 win mark

    perhaps a team will pick him up to beef up their bullpen. I guess he needs some more seasoning before being put back in the fire of pitching in the big leagues. At least in Houston he wont be grilled by the media about the demotion. Hitters were just licking their chops to get in there and he got eaten so this had to happen. Perhaps he could call up Steve Frey for some advice and they could work together a little to combat the issues…………… I know im missing some here.
