Prince Fielder is Underrated Because of His Weight

This post refers to

David Schoenfield on Prince Fielder:

But he has also earned more walks (and he had three more Tuesday) than strikeouts and sprays singles and doubles all over the field. He’s like the Tony Gwynn of this potato chip generation, only he smacks the ball 400-plus feet with regularity.

Fielder’s weight works against him big time. And the fact that his dad basically ate himself out of the game. Fielder is tremendously underrated as hitter both because of his weight, and I would assume, because he plays in Milwaukee. If he keeps his weight under control though, he might be the best hitter in baseball over the next five years.
