Prince Fielder came out in an interview and hinted this will probably be the last year he is with the Brewers. Now Brewers fans should not be too disappointed because actually this is a good thing. Milwaukee will be better with Fielder gone and here is why. First, the Brewers will save money on the cap and can direct it in other areas. Secondly, this also gives the Brewers a chance to see if Mat Gamel or others can step in and pick up the slack.
The Brewers will miss the production that Fielder gave them, but they will not miss his inconsistency in the clutch. For as good as Prince Fielder has been he has never been a clutch performer when the Brewers have needed him. This season he has been anything but clutch, so losing him in my opinion will not be as bad as many people think.
Many times you have to make changes and the change at first in reality will be good for the Brewers. It may not seem like it right now, but over the long haul it will be. It's time Brewers fans look towards the future and Fielder should not be in those plans.
