ESPN’s Dan Szymborski recently ranked the top 10 worst contracts in the MLB, and Fielder made his list. A year ago Fielder topped ESPN’s list. Now he’s down to sixth coming in just behind Seattle’s Robinson Cano jersey cheap.

Elvis Andrus jersey cheap also made the list as the 10th man.
“I won’t lie, I thought this was a reasonable deal at the time, as Andrus had just finished an age 23 season in which he displayed continued offensive development (his 94 OPS+ was his career best) and appeared to have one of the best gloves at shortstop in the AL,” Szymborski wrote. “Instead, Andrus’ game has regressed considerably, long before age related decline should even be an issue, and that regression has been in every aspect of his game. A top SS glove with a 90 OPS+ is a good player, but a below average SS glove with an 80 OPS+ is a disappointing one. Andrus’ case isn’t hopeless and he’s making ‘only’ $15 million per year, but, with seven years remaining, this one is not looking good.”
