Simers is a Genius

It only took him five weeks to figure out and write what I wrote on December 13, 2011:

If Prince Fielder really wants to come to LA, and I think he does, he and the Dodgers can still make it happen.   Two of his best friends play for the Dodgers, namely Matt Kemp and Tony Gwynn, Jr.

The Dodgers have been “one-upped” by the Angels with the addition of Albert Pujols, and McCourt knows that having a Prince in his court would maximize his return on investment.

He would have to sign a deal that year one would be $12-15 mil for year one and then escalates after that.  If he REALLY, REALLY wants to come to LA, he could be a game-changer and lead the Dodgers   The Dodgers could shed some payroll by trading Ethier or Loney.  Ethier would saved them $12 mil (probably).  Loney and Ethier have value.

I would recommend that the Dodgers seriously consider back-loading the deal and get it done!  The season ticket surge would more than pay for it, and the Dodgers would immediately become relevant again.  – LINK

Well, at least he finally figured it out. Here’s what he wrote:  http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-simers-20120122,0,2500480.column

To tell you the truth, I believe more than ever that Prince Fielder is coming to LA.  There’s a process that is going to have to happen, but I think Boras and Prince are waiting on the Dodgers.

The fact of the matter is that the Dodgers could sign him in March and keep Ethier and Loney.  At the trade deadline they could be in a really nice position.  Stay tuned…

    Bringing prince would bring back hope for dodgers fans.

  4. SpokaneBob says:

    I also believe that it will happen especially if Boras believes that the new owner is the only one who will pay what he is looking for.

    The bids are due tomarrow. Everyone knows the team will be sold. Jamie is due her $$$$ by the end of April.

    It will make us the Favorite in the NL west.

    Check out the link to John Weisman’s Blog. He believed that Prince would/could be a Dodger 3 months ago and there is a link to Hardball Talk that has some interesting information.

  6. Bobby says:

    do you have that link?

    You people are soooooo gullable. There is no way Prince is coming to LA….I repeat, there is NO WAY PRINCE IS COMING TO LA.
