    Fielder maybe seeking 8yr 200 million contract

    No particulars of the negotiations between the team and Prince Fielder's camp have yet become public, but one person familiar with the talks suggested the eight-year contracts of Mark Teixeira and Joe Mauer for $180 million and $184 million, respectively, are viewed by Fielder's people as mere starting points.
    And another person familiar with the talks suggested Fielder is seeking about $200 million over eight years, which would represent the biggest contract ever in the non-Alex Rodriguez category and only $23 million less than Mark Attanasio paid for the Brewers in 2004.

    Fielder has about as good of a chance to get that kind of deal that I do. Fielder isn't anywhere close to the player that Mauer is and won't get anywhere near the deal Joe did.

    How many batting titles has he won? 0. OK, how many MVP awards? 0 again. This guy should be thankful for the $100 mil contract he'll end up with.

    What do you even spend 100 mil on? Let alone 200 mil?

    I mean I can look at the number and go - "yep, that's a bunch" but I really don't have a clue how much that even is!

    Just insane!
