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...
Rangers Ballpark should also be a better home for a lefty slugger than Comerica, so at least the near future for Fielder looks better than it might have in Detroit.
