    Asdrubal Cabrera

    The Detroit Free Press is saying that the Tigers have interest in acquiring him. What do you think it would take to get him? If this is possible, and the Indians do trade within the division, I would take him over peralta any day. Thoughts?

    Heres a link:

    I'm definitely down to get Asdrubal. It'd probably take a whole lot tho. Probably NC, avisail, and smyly or porcello

    I agree the price to get him from a division rival will be extremely high. Still for a team that's built to win now I'd consider paying the price.

    I'd rather go for Drew as he would not cost prospects. Cabrera would be pricy talent wise.

    I honestly would be fine with parting ways with NC and Porcello. would have to throw in another 1 maybe 2 pieces but if we're trying to win now...seems like a good move

    Nick is not going anywhere this off-season.

    Why not? I'm not saying I expect him to be moved, but if we're in "win at all costs" mode, why wouldn't a top prospect be traded for the right piece?

    Assuming we ARE interested in Drew......

    Would you rather have Drew/Castellanos/Garcia or Asdrubel? Not sure about you, but I will take the first.

    When the Dombrowski SS-interest shifted to Cleveland and Cabrera, that signaled an end to the Drew talks.

    I would absolutely take the first.

    If they trade Nick or Garcia for Asdrubal, it would be a terrible decision. If they were to deal those guys, they could get something much better in return

    Castellanos can spend another year developing and then Detroit can bring him up move him to Third Cabrera back to first and prince can DH and split time at 1st. you do not trade 3 or 4 top tier prospects all under the age of 24 for 1 guy. I would not mind seeing the tigers go after Elvis Andrus and make a play for Sanchez and Grienke. if they are really in win now mode spend that money

    Yes, it would. You cant just package 4 mediocre prospects like in a video game, its quality > quantity. It would take Castellanos no doubt, thats the guy that every team wants. If we dont offer him, they move on to a different team. They arent forced to deal him.

    I would be much more willing to part with Nick for Cabrera than i am for Upton.

    Add that to the fact that Cleveland would want a premium trading in division.
