I just don't think Fielder is as sure a bet as Kinsler is to regress significantly over the next few seasons. At the end of Fielder's deal? Sure. But for the next few years, I think Fielder's the better bet to remain highly productive.
I see what you're saying about Prince/Kinsler straight up, but I think you are undervaluing the effect this will have on Cabrera to be able to play a much less physically demanding position defensively. Miggy had a 60-point BA drop, 70-point OBP drop, and 100-point SLG drop from April-June and July-October.
