Prince Fielder Blacked Out Before Going After Guillermo Mota

MLB News and Rumors

Er. Um. Apparently.

Fielder had said he didn’t “remember” his delayed reaction after reliever Guillermo Mota, a former teammate, hit him with two outs in the ninth inning of the 17-4 Dodgers win, presumably as payback for Chris Smith grazing Manny Ramirez with a pitch two innings earlier. ESPN.

But despite not “remembering” his childish, effeminate hissy fit, Fielder still had the wherewithal to acknowledge that he didn’t handle the situation well.

“I don’t feel I over-reacted [to being thrown at], but I feel like my actions probably weren’t the best,” Fielder said, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I know there are better ways of handling it. I’ve learned from it.”


The better ways include:

1.) Sending a letter; or

2.) Eating a beet sandwich; or

3.) Acknowledging that there’s no way you felt the impact of the pitch through that bulbous growth you call a thigh, and move on.
