Song urges Fielder to stay in Milwaukee

Among those rooting for the Brewers to reach the World Series may have been the band, the Baseball Project. While none of the members are Milwaukee fans (or Cardinals fans), they did have a gig lined up for the Milwaukee if the Brewers made the World Series -- but you know the rest of the baseball side of the story.

The group -- made up of indie rock veterans Steve Wynn (the Dream Syndicate), Linda Pitmon, Scott McCaughey (the Minus 5) and Peter Buck (R.E.M.) --  wrote some songs for the folks in Milwaukee that went unused. Still, the group did release a song from that planned set on its website. The song, well, the title speaks for itself: "C'mon Prince (Stay In MIlwaukee)."

Here it is:

C'mon Prince (Stay In Milwaukee) by The Baseball Project

You've got to give the guys credit, they're right when they point out to Fielder that he's "got nine more years of Ryan Braun hitting right in front of you/You think any other three and four hitters can do the damage you two will do" and "You'll have have money coming out of your ears/Even if you sign for just five years."

The band's website says its working on an alternate version: "C'mon Albert (Stay In St. Louis)."

Song urges Fielder to stay in Milwaukee

Is there a common sense when they got K Rod? i guess not. Wooing Fielder with a song or gifts will not matter just like what Lebron did with the Cavs. Based on his productivity i am sure the teams with a lot of money to waste won't have any second thoughts of getting him. No one is trying to fool anyone as i said try to get Pujols. It can be possible but it is up to the Brewers what tricks they can do to get someone to fill for Fielder if he leaves.

You're a fool if you seriously think the Brewers have a shot at signing Pujols.  If they cant afford Fielder how are they supposed to afford Pujols?  Common sense tells me that aint happening.

Not the end for the Brewers if does not come back. And even if he does leaves i think the Brewers can try getting Albert Pujols.

After hearing that song, I'd want to leave Milwaukee.

The Orioles are going to open the bank vault for Prince; Phat Albert will be a Cub or stay with the Cardinals; and as usual, the Dodgers will remain cheap bastards and get nothing substantive.
