Prince Fielder needs to grow up

Prince Fielder’s temper tantrum following last night’s 17-4 shellacking by the Dodgers in Los Angeles is the talk of baseball today.

Upset because Dodger reliever (and former Fielder teammate) Guillermo Mota drilled him with a pitch in the ninth inning, an angry Fielder attempted to barge his way into the Dodger clubhouse after the game to go after Mota.

Mota hit Fielder after Brewer reliever
Chris Smith nailed Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez with a pitch in the seventh inning. Fielder is either too stupid, too immature, or both to realize that as long as baseball has been around, if your pitcher hits one of their guys, one of their pitchers will retaliate.

Though Mota’s action was intentional, he hit Fielder in one of his large legs where damage would be just a few smarts. It certainly was not as dangerous as throwing at Fielder’s head.

You never, ever try to go into the other team’s clubhouse seeking revenge. Brewer players were seen right there with Fielder along with manager Ken Macha. It appeared some players weren’t even making an attempt to restrain Fielder. Nice leadership by the manager.

And speaking of the manager, why does he even have Fielder in the game in the ninth inning of a 17-4 embarrassment?

This isn’t the first time Fielder has gone crazy.

Major League Baseball is investigating. That means fines and/or suspensions. Fielder, who is having a nice season, wasn’t thinking about his teammates when he went berserk. He deserves punishment.
