A Few More Thoughts On the Trade

What happens to Brandon Inge?  You have to think he might be on the way out unless he’s willing to revert back to a super sub like he did back in 2004.

How does this lineup look:

1)  Curtis Granderson  CF – Should Have Been an All Star
2)  Placido Polanco 2B – 2007 All Star
3)  Gary Sheffield  DH – Former All Star, Future Hall of Famer
4)  Magglio Ordonez  RF – 2007 All Star
5)  Miguel Cabrera  3B – 2007 All Star
6)  Carlos Guillen  1B – 2007 All Star
7)  Jacque Jones/Marcus Thames  LF
8)  Ivan Rodriguez  C – 2007 All Star, Future Hall of Famer
9)  Edgar Renteria  SS – Former All Star (five times)

And you also have to like this rotation

1)  Justin Verlander
2)  Kenny Rogers
3)  Dontrelle Willis
4) Jeremy Bonderman
5)  Nate Robertson

Do you think this team is going to be good next year?

I absolutely love this deal for the Tigers. They are getting two proven guys and while they are giving up a lot of potential, none of the players they are giving up have had any big league success.

I love Cabrera, the guy is tracking for a HoF career what is not to like? Willis is overhyped and my gut feeling is he will get killed in the AL. I hope I am wrong though.

The lineup looks splendid. However, if you’re not batting Cabrera third, you’re crazy. Sheffield is a risk at his age. Otherwise, wow.
