As was first reported (kinda) by Sports Review Magazine, baseball had its first big trade yesterday. The Marlins sent Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to the Tigers for six guys, though we think the actual amount of tonnage exchanged was close to equal.
At first glance, it appears to make the Tigers' lineup terrifying, and for a year or so, that would seem to be the case. But the Marlins have an excellent track record in this business; it wouldn't surprise us in the least to see that collection of Florida cheap youngsters do one of their patented annoying wild-card runs to the World Series in a couple of years.
More to the point: Jeez, when did the Tigers become the Yankees? It's yet another day that Alan Trammell spends in his basement, staring at the wall, flicking his lamp on ... and off ... and on ... and off ...
