Boras is an ass and I am sure he will have some interesting new statistic to defend Fielder's fielding ability and his weight "No one in his weight class has the range that Fielder does!" Buster Olney is a great writer though, he and Jayson Stark are the only baseball writers at ESPN who have a rough idea what they are talking about and I suspect that soon both will be at MLB Network.

I heard Boras on MLB Network Radio (XM) today. He implied that Fielder is worth more than Mauer because he's hit far more home runs than Mauer had at the same age.

No mention of three batting titles. No mention of playing a much more demanding and important position. Just home runs. If you're starting a team tomorrow, and can only have Mauer or Fielder, who would you take?

Did Onley respond to Boras' claims about defense and his unnamed sources?

No GM is going to go on record and bad mouth any player that is currently on a major league roster. If Olney had unnamed sources saying Fielder was the best all around first baseman in baseball, Boras would have no problem with it.

A friend of mine who is a Brewers fan has said that Fielder is awful at first base, I don't watch enough games to know though.
