Prince Ready to Trade His Crown for a Halo

Prince Fielder has looked downright kingly this year.

The 25-year old is hitting for average and power while playing top-notch defense at first base. Without a question, he is in the midst of a great season and makes a lethal one-two punch alongside slugging outfielder, Ryan Braun.

Fielder is currently on pace to set career highs in numerous statistical categories such as runs batted in (157), batting average (.295), on-base percentage (.421), hits (167) and walks (122). He is also on pace to finish with 41 homers, a number that would fall nine shy of his career high set in 2007, but would eclipse last year’s somewhat disappointing total of 34.

Despite all that, it would be in the Brewers best interest to trade Fielder now.
