Fielder [2]For all the talk from Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland about shuffling the lineup and Austin Jackson struggling in the postseason, Prince Fielder has turned into an even bigger problem.

He has collected one hit in four of the five games against the Red Sox, but just one has gone for extra bases, and he hasn’t driven in a run.

Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe summed things up nicely on Twitter during the game when Fielder made one of his patented playoff outs.

 

Fielder, who is as healthy as a player can be at this point in the season, remains the biggest piece to help save the Tigers and get them back to the World Series.
