The Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers completed a blockbuster trade on Wednesday that sent Prince Fielder to Texas and Ian Kinsler to Detroit. The deal is the first major shakeup of the MLB offseason but as FanSided.com pointed out, Fielder and Kinsler discussed putting themselves in a trade in an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball ad from 2010. 

While the trade isn't exactly how it went down in the ad, it's a bit eerie that this even took place given the recent news.

Another odd coincidence came during the 2012 All-Star game, when Kinsler tried on Fielder's pants.

If you're an All-Star, what do you do before the game? Try on another man's pants? Ian tried on Prince Fielder's pants. pic.twitter.com/FDuyLnw8
