Cecil Fielder Takes Another Chance To Rip Son Prince

Friday night, Cecil Fielder and Tino Martinez were inducted into the Ted Williams Hitters Hall of Fame. Which gave Fielder a soapbox. And apparently rumors of a rapprochement between Cecil and son Prince -- who recently signed with the Detroit Tigers, for whom Prince starred 20 years ago -- were greatly exaggerated. Marc Topkin:

Cecil Fielder said Prince has no relationship with any members of their extended family, including his ill grandparents; he "hides behind" agent Scott Boras' representatives to dodge discussing his family; and he shows no appreciation for those who helped him along the way.

For example, Cecil Fielder said: "We all knew the kid was obese. He had a hard time running to first base without getting tired. You don't transform your body by yourself, you've got to have trainers, you've got to have people cooking for you, there's a lot of things that go into that. ...

"There's a lot of people that wish he would get over whatever he's got going on with his self. ... And once he gets rid of that, I think those people he needs to reach out to other than me, I think hopefully he will."

Here's the kicker: Cecil Fielder also said (as he has before) that he's "going to take the high road".

All of which leaves me with just one question:

What, exactly, would the low road look like?
