Detroit Tigers Hook the Big One
Florida Marlins‘ superstar third baseman Miguel Cabrera has been traded to the Detroit Tigers. After weeks/months of suspense for most of the league, the Tigers acquired Cabrera for a bunch of prospects. Oh yeah, they got the Marlins to throw in pitcher Dontrelle Willis too. I guess the Anaheim Angels or Los Angeles Angels or whatever took the winter off after signing Torii Hunter to a ridiculous contract. I’m beginning to wonder to myself if this team is worse of than it was last year. They let shortstop Orlando Cabrera and his bat go and now they lost to chance to compete in the powerful American League. The Angels have always been reluctant to trade prospects for superstars which is the stupidest mentality. I’m not saying purge the farm system. But the window of opportunity for many of these guys is closing, i.e. Vladimir Guerrero, John Lackey. The Angels’ lineup in the playoffs looked like a minor league team. I hope the Angels aren’t thinking about shortstop Miguel Tejada from the Orioles, as he’s on the down of his career and amongst those who have been accused of using the juice. Then again, he might fit right in with the Angels, along with Gary Matthews, Jr. and Torii Hunter, a couple other guys past their prime. Angels’ motto, we like to overpay for overrated free agent. I’m an Angel fan and I’m pissed. GO GET JOHAN!!!
