Bay obviously doesn't want to come. So to my thinking, we're down to Holliday and/or making a trade. Does anyone have a sense if Miguel Cabrera is available? Would the Tigers take Murphy, Ike Davis, and Mejia?
In Cabrera, yes, he's got warts and is not cheap, but he turns 27 in April and has a 3-year average line of .311/.383/.549 with 35 home runs and 116 rbi playing entirely in pitchers' parks. He would be a pretty solid bet to put up some big offensive numbers.
