I agree that this would be a better set up, but wasn't there some issues with Miggy not wanting to switch positions last year or in 06 in FLA? And even though Jones isn't a feared hitter, he is a much needed left-handed stick and should get onbase more than Inge.

I didn't see this discussed yet, but the fantasy impact of this trade is what I care about most:

Thoughts on what this does for Cabrera's value and projection? I'm assuming it has to go up, though Detroit, like Miami, isn't a great park. But the lineup. Man.

Where does Cabrera go now in a redraft?

I think with the NL to AL translation knocking down his avg/obp/slg that the lineup difference will probably be a wash. I think we see a very slight dip in hr's, a small-to-mid-size dip in avg, a small-to-mid-size increase in runs and quite a few more rbi's. Oh...and he still won't run. ;)

Edit: On second thought that's probably a slight increase in value. The avg is taking a hit as is the power (though very slightly here). But the context numbers should be appreciably better, especially on the runs.

The Angels have a lot of young talent but that's not what I meant. I was talking about how their talks dragged on forever while it seems like Detroit just swooped in and made a deal.
