The (potential) solution to Prince Fielder fantasies.


Am I the only one who thinks Jason Kubel would be a much better pickup than Fielder? Yes, he's Prince Fielder and all...but Kubel would be a solid "low risk, high ceiling" type of deal. He's a lefty who can hit for decent average (.275) as well as dingers (20ish per season) and slugging (approx .450). His OBP isnt too shabby at approx .335 either. The best part is he's dirt cheap compared to Fielder. While he does play in a crowded position at the moment (Left field and DH), it would at least be SOMEone with a proven stick.

This little blurb is less of a statistical analysis and more of a "Why not this guy?" piece. I fully understand that I used rough estimates of the four major batting statistics..but he is a guy who should at LEAST be discussed.

Unless I'm missing something like he roams the streets at night looking for puppies to feast upon, which is why nobody wants him.
