Sounds pretty specific, right? A done deal?
Not so fast, tweeted Jim Bowden of ESPN/XM Radio:
The Nationals continue to work on a deal for Prince Fielder…BUT THERE IS NO DEAL repeat NO DEAL as of tonight according to sources
The non-deal was also noted on Twitter by Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt:
A very good source just told me there is no deal in place between Nationals and Fielder. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen at some point.
Source: Orioles trying to squeeze $$$ out of Peter Angelos for Prince Fielder. Heard Showalter met with owner late last week & asked for $
That would be a big splash for the Orioles, especially since they share a market with the Nats. As always, we await further developments.
