And possibly the fattest infield.

No, definitely the fattest infield.

I don't think the lord cares about baseball free agency.

He cares about football.

Gotta assume Cabrera will be DH in 2012 with Victor sidelined for the season...2013 will be interesting to see what they do with essentially 3 highly paid DH's on the roster.

Yeah, 2012 should be easy, but it seems they want to try Cabrera at third, which is mindboggling to me. I guess he may not want to DH? Imagine Cabrera running to get groundballs hit in the hole.

Chubby, wheezing and a tendency of kicking the ball into left field when he gives up on a play.

Come on, we all know he doesn't want to play 3B.

teams signing a player to play a position they already have an all star at seems to be in style this off-season.

Well if both Cabrera and Fielder are at 1st base, gravity wont let anything pass. I can understand what they were going after.

I think if He cared, Pujols would have stayed with the Cards and taken the hometown discount.

I'm so out of touch with MLB, it's not even funny. But anyone who thinks that $200 million+ for a overweight, often clumsy hitter who will probably give you about a .275 BA, 25 - 35 HRs a year and zero fielding ability is a good deal needs their head examined.

Check this out: Prince becomes the full time DH for the Tigers, drops 30 pounds thanks to some sort of Nutra-System/Jenny Craig diet, becomes the best DH ever, better even than say...Edgar Martinez, , never wins a World Series, retires and is voted into the HOF despite spending his last 9 seasons as a DH.


I can see it now.

I can also see him being wheeled out to the batters box in a few seasons.
