Quote of the Day (Michael Rosenberg, on Prince Fielder)

“[Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince] Fielder has the kind of body that an eight-year-old might draw: enormous round shoulders, thighs that look like torsos, and a face so large that it could double-park. He also has short arms, giving him an impossibly quick and compact swing, which helps explain why, after the [Texas] Rangers walked [teammate Miguel] Cabrera, Fielder smacked a 95-mph sinkerball so hard, it reached the centerfield fence on one bounce. Double. Three runs in.”—Michael Rosenberg, “Men at Work,” Sports Illustrated, June 17, 2013
