Things got heated with the Cardinals last week. What happened?
Prince Fielder: [Brewers reliever Takashi] Saito hit Albert [Pujols]—obviously not on purpose. Then, I don't know if it was on purpose, but one got away from their guy. They gave us a warning, and it was over after that.
The Cardinals' Jason Motte hit your teammate Ryan Braun. Did you know they were going to try to plunk someone?
PF: It's in your mind. It's not that big a deal. Obviously it sucks being the one getting hit. Braunie's all right. Nobody got hurt. You don't want to make too big a deal about it. Then you forget what the real goal is.
How many teammates would it take to hold you back if you got hit?
PF: I don't get mad anymore. I've given that up.
