Major trade talks between Detroit and Florida...

There are reports that the Tigers are talking to the Marlins about a blockbuster trade that would send Miguel Cabrera and left-hander Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for a package of young players, according to major-league sources.

Outfielder Cameron Maybin and left-hander Andrew Miller likely are among the Marlins' targets. The Tigers already feature two veteran left-handed starters, Kenny Rogers and Nate Robertson, possibly making Miller available in a deal for Willis.

Miguel would certainly make the Tigers much more dangerous for a decade. I'm no longer a big Willis fan, but why not take a chance on him? He's certainly fun to watch.

There are also reports that Detroit is looking at Dan Haren as well.

This will definitely bring the Tigers out of the mediocrity they have been mired in. A move like this shows they're getting somewhat serious about winning.

Big friggin deal. They've just started making these trades. But the organization has been mired in mediocrity. Step up and make some bigger moves and then talk about your Tigers... until then, shut the F up.

I'm Starting To Think That Detroit Is Realizing That They Have To Be Serious And Need Good Players To Go Along With A Fairly Good Team...Now They(Detroit)Need To Be All About Winning With A Firm Set Of Money For The Player(s) That They Want, And Stick To It Along With A Contract That Both Parties Can Compromise With.....

Maybe Detroit Is Starting To Get A Wake-Up Call (Which Has Been Needed)
What They Need To Do Now Is To Set A Firm Offer For A Contract,As Well As Agree To The Regards Of The Money That Will Get The Players That They Want...I Don't Much Care For The Tigers Or The Marlins,But I Do Wish Them The Best..... =D
