The Brewers travel to Scottsdale tomorrow to take on the Giants during the first week of spring games. It’s not yet known whether Prince Fielder will make the trip, but if he does, it will be his first appearance against San Francisco since last Sept. 9, when he hit a game-ending homer in Milwaukee. At issue: the method of celebration utilized by Fielder and his teammates, which was not taken well by many in the Giants’ clubhouse.
There’s no prediction of retaliation here, but keep in mind that spring training is a popular time to settle old scores; because games don’t count, there’s little need for timing to be dictated by game situation.
Needless to say, we’ll be watching.
