The Prince is right….for Texas

Did the Detroit Tigers overpay for Prince Fielder?

Did the Tigers now pay too much or get too little in return for Prince Fielder when they traded him to the Texas Rangers for Ian Kinsler?

And why did they have to throw in additional $30 million to make Wednesday’s trade complete?

The trade does make sense and could be a good one for both teams.

The Rangers needed a left-handed power hitter. Josh Hamilton was missed last season.

And the Tigers needed a second baseman. Kinsler is no Lou Whitaker.

But Kinsler carries a bigger stick than Sweet Lou.

Are the Tigers done? Could Max Scherzer be traded next?

The Texas Rangers may be interested.

But for now the Prince is right for Texas.
