Close, But Not The Same - According to this piece over at JSOnline, the Chicago Cubs have the best odds of getting Prince Fielder once MLB Free Agency starts. So, a Wisconsin-based team icon going to play for another team in the same division, sound familiar? I’m sure someone or somewhere the Favre & Fielder analogy has been made, but is it an accurate one? Let’s see:
- Two players who played who helped lift their teams to prominence.
- Two players who came into their own while playing for those teams, becoming league super stars in the process.
- Two players who mean a tremendous amount to their respective teams.
So maybe it is a fair comparison, but I think only on the face of it. The big difference between the two situation is that with Fielder, whether we wanted to admit it or not, we all knew he’d be leaving at some point. With Favre, we always thought he’d be a Packer. The emotional buy-in was much greater with Favre & I feel pretty sure we won’t see a Melvin/Brewers’ fans vs Fielder fans schism the likes of which we saw between Favre fans & Packers/Thompson fans in 2008. Will it suck to see Fielder go, only to see him several times a year in a Cubs uniform? You bet. Will it be the gut wrenching experience we experienced see a purple clad #4? Hardly.
