So you heard Benjie Molina's the new 1B/catcher coach? Oh, yeah, they traded Kins for Prince Fielder too...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: A mainstay is gone.  And they're going to pay a lot of money for Fielder.  A LOT.  And Fielder is not what you would call a great fielding 1B.  And and Fielder was bad to terrible in the postseason for the Tigers.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Oh yeah, we haven't made the postseason in any meaningful way for a while.  So there's that.  Let's see if Fielder can help us at least get there.  We don't have to watch Kins get caught with his pants down on the base pads anymore.  And Profar can play everyday.  Furthermore, it's likely a bit (if not a lot) of power upgrade.  And apparently DET is going to pay for at least some of his salary.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: I like it.  Oh yeah, Murph was lost in free agency.  Sincerely good luck to him, he was nothing but solid for a while there for our Rangers.
