From ESPN's Winter Meetings Blog:
12:30 p.m., from Peter Gammons
The Tigers and Marlins have had preliminary talks about a blockbuster trade -- Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for a package of young players that reportedly could include outfielder Cameron Maybin and left-hander Andrew Miller -- but Florida GM Larry Beinfest needs a lot more and doesn't think it's serious.
6:20 p.m., from Peter Gammons
The Tigers have won the Miguel Cabrera sweepstakes. Detroit will get Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis from Florida for six players -- Cameron Maybin, Andrew Miller, catcher Mike Rabelo and three minor league prospects.
I... I don't even know how to to respond to this. This is absurd. Dear God.
Thank God for the Red Sox. Although if they trade away Jacoby... (it doesn't look like they will, but...)
