Though I think the Tigers overpaid for Fielder, I am concerned about him hitting the ball all over our pretty Target Field. We will have to face Fielder 20 times this season and we need to be scared, in a respectful way.
Prince Fielder hits a ton, but isn't the most fleet a foot, which benefits us if we can get a strong outfield in the game, every game. The Twins have played in 38 games against Fielder. In those games, Fielder is hitting .261 and has 8 home runs and 14 extra base hits.
Fielder will be a decent addition for the Tigers, but it helps that they paid so much for him. He may or may not be a difference maker in the Motor City, but either way the Twins should keep him in their radar. Just to be safe.
