Prince Fielder Not On Miami Marlins' Radar?

Albert Pujols hasn't yet signed with the St. Louis Cardinals or anybody else, but what we know about the Pujols negotiations is that the Miami Marlins are out. They made their push Tuesday, and it didn't work, so they were removed from the running. Immediately after word spread that the Marlins were out on Pujols, there were rumors that they were turning their attention to Prince Fielder. You know - that other free agent first baseman who is amazing.

But! Here we have Clark Spencer and Joe Capozzi. Spencer is the Marlins beat writer for the Miami Herald. Capozzi is the Marlins beat writer for the Palm Beach Post. It stands to reason that Spencer and Capozzi probably know about the Marlins' plans better than most. And:

Beat writers have been wrong before, obviously, but this certainly sounds definitive. No sources. No whispers. Just flat-out declarations.

Surely Scott Boras wouldn't just use the Marlins' name to try to drive up the price for his most-prized free agent, would he?

The Marlins have signed Heath Bell, Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle. They're working on C.J. Wilson. Prince Fielder? It doesn't look like the Marlins are chasing Prince Fielder. Even though to chase Prince Fielder would be [deleted, fat joke]
