Rangers Prince excited to join a 'great team' in Texas

Quote:
- Prince Fielder, according to the contract he signed with the Tigers, had the right to veto a trade to the Rangers. He chose not to do that, instead accepting a deal that brings him to Texas in exchange for second baseman Ian Kinsler.

"Obviously it's another great team," Fielder said on Thursday. "I don't think it's a bad thing. Obviously I thought it would be good for everybody. I want everybody to be happy."

Fielder spoke briefly on a conference call with Texas reporters one day after the Rangers completed the trade with the Tigers. He is scheduled to be formally introduced at a news conference on Monday at the Ballpark in Arlington.

The trade comes after Fielder spent just two seasons with the Tigers. He signed a nine-year, $214 million contract with them on Jan. 26, 2012, but was traded after hitting .279 with 25 home runs, 106 RBIs and .457 slugging percentage this past season. The home runs and slugging percentage were both career lows for him.

"Whatever I did last year, I'll do the opposite this year," Fielder said. "It was cool. The season went fine. It is what it is. You can't take it back. We went to the playoffs. We didn't go as far as we wanted to go, but everybody is still alive."

Meh... mixed emotions. I wasn't at first, and I don't think i'll ever be. But I am just going to live with it.

I will be looking to draft Fielder in my league next season. JV, good analysis about the trade on your latest video.
