Fielder has had hot summer in Motown, but not smokin'

By Scott Miller | Senior Baseball Columnist

SAN FRANCISCO -- Most entertaining moment during Tuesday's World Series workout day?

For my money, it was a priceless 30-second exchange with Prince Fielder.

Folks were asking about manager Jim Leyland, what Fielder has observed about him, how his first year in Detroit has gone with Leyland.

So I couldn't resist. I asked Fielder if Leyland's influence has caused him to take up smoking during the summer.

"No," Fielder quickly replied, grinning. "But I have gotten him some electronic cigarettes."

And does the skipper use them?

"Oh, he crushes 'em," Fielder quipped.
