PRINCE FIELDER IS NOT GOING TO CHICAGO
Tue, 17 Jan 2012 04:07 PM EST

With a made over front office and brand new boss, there’s a replenished perception of hope at the year’s Chicago Cubs fan convention.

Aficionados hoping the team would be filling its power void with the addition of Prince Fielder, nonetheless, had those wishes shot down on Saturday. Football lines

“There haven’t been any discussions with us for Prince, that’s not going to happen,” newly installed chief Dale Sveum said a room full of aficionados at a question and reply meeting Saturday. “We have our first baseman in Bryan LaHair and [Anthony] Rizzo waiting in the wings also. We’re doing OK with massive power left-handed hitters at this time.”

Team chief executive officer Theo Epstein wasn’t as severe when it came to dispelling the idea of Fielder becoming his trademark purchase this offseason. The Cubs ‘ new front office has been steady in pronouncing its focus is on taking players whose top seasons are before them. Football betting lines

Fielder poses a novel situation as a player heading into free agency right before his anticipated excellent years. While a lot of free agents are on the incorrect side of 30, Fielder will be 28 in May.

“His youth makes –Fielder – truly attracting to any club, regardless of where they’re in their own growth as a ballclub,” Epstein said. “There’s little doubt that [our] first objective is to expand a young basis, a nucleus of impact talent that we are able to build around.”

A first part of that core looks to be Rizzo, whom the Cubs purchased for pitcher Andrew Cashner last week. Epstein claimed they were willing to part with Cashner — who, at just Twenty-five, was also already viewed as an element of the Cubs ‘ young group of aptness — mainly because they projected him as a reliever over the long-term.

LaHair, twenty-nine, and Rizzo, twenty-two, had standout junior league seasons in 2011.

Rizzo batted .331 with 34 doubles, 26 home runs and 101 RBIs in 93 Triple-A games. LaHair, for his part, was named the Pacific Coast League MVP. Still, at age 29, LaHair is considered to be more of a finished product than a prospect.

Epstein acknowledged that much won’t be expected of the Cubs in 2012. However, he felt reliant that the team has more ability than its being given credit for.

“Just to be terribly honest with you, we don’t have ample assets,” Esptein, who preaches clarity, claimed. “We don’t have satisfactory good players; we don’t have adequate young players. We don’t have enough players whose contributions on the field surpass or complement their income. So we’re going to be scratching and clawing to obtain those blokes as we field a team that may maximize our competitiveness now and create that underpinning for long term victory.”
