True, but I'm not sure trading Fielder was the answer either. There's a DH spot and another tradeable player there that makes more sense to move. Having both split DH/1B and getting more rest seemed the most logical.
Part of me is also biased because Fielder's been a real steady player his entire career and very healthy (despite what projections say should have occurred). On top of that, he's a mostly stand-up guy (especially compared to dirtbag Cabrera). But hey, anything that makes the Tigers worse...
