    Tigers acquire M. Cabrera and Dontrelle

    It sounds like it will be official by tonight.

    The Official Site of Major League Baseball: News: Major League Baseball News

    A blog was reporting that Cabrera was about to be acquired by the White Sox. A few minutes later, a different blog reports this deal. Talk about an extreme high and an extreme low.

    Just saw this on ESPN as Breaking News, WOW. Detroit has a had a pretty busy off season, same with the Cubs.

    Detroit and Boston will have fun playing each other in the ALCS.

    That is called unadulterated stealing. Marlins love being a farm team and sending their players to the league.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    I honestly think the Marlins got the better of this deal. Miller is still VERY young and a legit top of the rotation guy, Willis hasn't been that for a few years now. Maybin is going to be a very solid, possible star and the other four sound like quality pickups... Detroit turned down a deal of the same package for Bedard and Tejada which would have been a much better deal for them if you don't factor in the money...

    How is trading 6 players for 2 players considered "buying a ring"?

    I have never understood the Florida Marlins. Sure they might have the better end of the deal in the next 10 years, but those players will just be traded away before then again. MAYBE they luck into another World Series before than to.

    I like to know who your team is and see how much the owner is pocketing compared to putting back into the team( I'm a yankee fan so i will argue this topic all day)

    Re: Tigers acquire M. Cabrera and Dontrelle

    Tigers new line-up:
    1. Curtis Granderson
    2. Placidio Polanco
    3. Miguel Cabrera
    4. Gary Sheffield
    5. Mags Ordonez
    6. Carlos Guillen
    7. Edgar Renteria
    8. Ivan Rodriguez
    9. Jacque Jones


    That's a pretty good line-up for the Detroit Tigers
