Nats Meet With Fielders Agent

Bill Ladson of MLB.com reported today that the Washington Nationals ownership have met with Prince Fielders agent, Scott Boras.

In his article, Ladson cites an unnamed "baseball source" for the information. This report only adds to the speculation that the Nationals are currently the front runners to land Prince Fielder.

Fielder is also reported to be pursued by the Mariners and Cubs.

This little chit-chat between the two parties could simply be for Scott Boras to pitch a few different deals to the Nationals ownership. The Nationals are more than likely waiting for the price to lower and that could also be one item thrown around in the meeting.

This meeting is one of the first moves that the Nationals have made toward acquiring Prince Fielder.
