Cabrera and D-Train headed for Detroit

Recommended Posts

maros91

Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis got traded to the Detroit Tigers for 6 prospects, one of them Andrew Miller. Detroit's lineup becomes potent adding Cabrera.

1. Curtis Granderson

2. Edgar Renteria

3. Carlos Guillen

4. Magglio Ordonez

5. Miguel Cabrera

6. Gary Sheffield

7. Ivan Rodriguez

8. Jacque Jones

9. Placido Polanco

SP

1. Justin Verlander

2. Kenny Rogers

3. Jeremy Bonderman

4. Dontrelle Willis

5. Nate Robertson

Looks like the Tigers want to make a serious run at the World Series next year. They should win the Central with Cleveland on their heels.

Not a good trade for Detroit. They gave up a five tool CF, and a pitcher in Miller who is actually headed in the right direction. Willis is young, but heading in the wrong direction.

Who knows who the 4 other prospects are as well.

It will definitely strengthen the Tigers next year... But I don't think it will fare that well for them in the future.

And how does a guy like Polanco hit 9th? They gotta keep him as the #2 hitter... Throw the newcomer Renteria somewhere else.

I was just throwing them out there as they came to mind. Renteria was just acquired this offseason so he was one of the firsts to pop up.

Detroit is going to be a tough team to beat this year. Yeah they gave up alot to get those 2 but they want to put a winning product on the field for the fans unlike the Twins.

They look good on paper.

Too bad we won't trade within the division, If the prospects are as good as you say. I say if you feel like it makes your team better, either now or for the future make the trade, regardless of what league or division the teams are in.

They will be tough for a couple years. However, they traded away their future to try to win it all now. Even better excuse for the Twins to rebuild and be competetive when the new stadium opens and the Tigs and Tribe are starting to age a bit.

Also, with Detriot getting Cabrera, I think it opens up more trading partners for the Twins. The same players up for big for Cabrera would be great for the Twins if they can get those west coast teams into the picture.

PS What about Inge for 3rd here? He hits for power and plays good defense. His strikeouts are high though.

Brandon Inge doesn't do anything for me. A below average hitter and very overpaid. I'd rather take my chances on a young guy that hasn't proven anything, but has some potential. Inge was paid $4.9 million in '07. Has only had one year where he hit better than .261 and only one year where he's had more than 16 homers. At the price Inge would come at, I'm not a fan of that option.

You know what I like about this trade for Detroilet? A proven star for a bunch of prospects. The odds are none of the prospects turn into a star, no matter what the hype. C'mon Twins.....

This trade will almost guarentee that the Yanks will be back in the picture for Santana. They see and hear rumblings of the Tigers AND Red Sox putting together line-ups like they are and it will drive them crazy. My bet is that Santana will be a Yankee before the new year arrives.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
