Florida Marlins Trade Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to Detroit Tigers


The Florida Marlins trade Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to the Detroit Tigers in a blockbuster trade that will change the face of both franchises. In exchange the Marlins will receive 6 players including former All-Stars left-hander Andrew Miller and center fielder Cameron Maybin. Cabrera, 24, hit .320 with 34 home runs and 119 RBIs in 2007, while Willis, 25, went 10-15 with a 5.17 ERA in 2007. He has a career 68-54 record with a 3.78 ERA in five Major League seasons. Cabrera has topped 25 HRs and 110 RBIs in all four of his full Major League seasons. And D-Train, though he had a tough season last year, is still considered to be one of the top young arms in the game. I think this brings the Tigers back to the 2006 level they played at and made them a contender in the American League. The deal hasn't been finalized yet, as both teams are reviewing medical records and the final details are being worked out.
