First the positive stuff: everybody's favorite first baseman was named NL Player of the Week for last week. Four home runs will do the trick, I think. Hardy, Suppan, and Villanueva were nominated as well. Funny things happen when your team is friggin' awesome.
Fun fact: during that week, Prince hit 440/533/960, for an OPS of a mere 1.493. He's also OPSing over 1.000 with runners in scoring position, in tie games, in one-run games, in two-run games, in the ninth inning, against relief pitchers, and of course, against the Pirates. Unfortunately, he's 0-2 (plus a HBP, of course) against Matt Capps. Something tells me that will change.
And the rest: Matt Capps has been fined and suspended for hitting Prince the other night. Frankly, I think remaining on the Pirates through his arbitration years would be punishment enough, but though MLB folks really want Prince to be healthy, and for that I salute them. May Capps continue to give up go-ahead runs to the Crew for many years to come.
