Prince Fielder is officially done for the season with season ending neck surgery (herniated disk). I always liked Fielder and wished the best for him, despite his lackluster playoff showing in 2013.
But with the full benefit of hindsight, the Kinsler for Fielder trade looks pretty good right about now. In addition to losing what is clearly now dead weight (hah!) in Fielder, Kinsler has performed well so far both at the plate and in the field. The ripple effect of moving Miggy back to first, having a capable second baseman in a fielder's (double hah!) park, and unloading Fielder's bulky (triple hah!) contract is making Dombrowski look pretty smart right about now.
I hope Fielder recovers well and returns to form for the Rangers, unless we see them in the post-season.
