I stand corrected. Good point Klane.
Why not just trade Fielder for Beltre, let Texas move Young to 3B...move Cabrera back to 1B where he belongs, have Beltre play 3B...and we can all move on?
Because Young is not a good baseball player anymore and is awful in the field.
Okay, put Kinsler at 3B and DH Young...either way the point is that we should not be arguing over Beltre vs Cabrera as Cabrera is not a third-sacker.
No way in hell would Texas trade Beltre for Fielder, Beltre is one of if not the best defensive third baseman in baseball, and he's a better hitter than Fielder who is awful at first base, not too mention the terrible contract.
We'll see how good Beltre is this year without Hamiltons protection. Remember he had Big Papi in Boston too last year and before that he sucked balls for Seattle so I cannot say that he is a better hitter than Fielder. He was just put into solid lineups with big lefties like (Fielder) around him.
Would you guys make the trade proposed in here? It shows multiple teams and possible trades for Upton. But the Tigers one was Garcia and Castellanos for Upton.
Seeing as we are in a win now mode I would actually be all for it. Great defensive outfield and best line-up in baseball in my opinion.
I would love to add Upton but it doesn't seem like the DBacks are trying to move him just yet and are waiting for some team to wow them with a big over payment.
Yeah throw in smyly and I would say no as well but I wouldn't mind throwing another person into the deal at all. I would throw in Porcello as well honestly especially if we can sign Sanchez (I'm still hoping for that.)
And yeah I know they want to be wowed but I do think it would be possible for us to do it. But at the same time he's not really what I would consider a need so I doubt even if we had the pieces we would pull the trigger.
Diamondbacks have shown interest in Jhonny Peralta. But Tigers won't trade him unless/until they get someone better at shortstop.

I will be so happy if Peralta gets dealt.
