    Or better yet, move Pierre to the A.L.

    The whole "move Pierre to left" thing doesn't really seem like a good enough solution for me. So then you have Kemp and Ethier splitting time? Can we just bench Pierre instead? Who cares how much he makes. Make him the fourth outfielder. Or fifth. I don't give a ****. He sucks.

    how about Kemp in center?

    I know this isnt much of a solution, but there are people smarter than I to figure out the lineup after having Kemp in center

    This scares the HELL out of me!!!

    The Dodgers tried to pry Cabrera away from the Marlins last summer when they discussed a deal that would have sent Matt Kemp, James Loney and Chad Billingsley to Florida, but the Marlins balked. The Dodgers are still interested, and Cabrera, 24, would instantly upgrade new manager Joe Torre's 2008 lineup.

    I love the thought of what Kershaw could turn out to be, but again, Edwin Jax and Miller were at one time considered the #1 and #2 pitching prospects in the MLB.

    Basically, would you rather have Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter, or A-Rod and the prospects?

    How does this sound:

    Furcal
    Martin
    Loney
    Cabrera
    Kent
    Hunter
    Ethier
    Pierre

    I like this lineup better:
    Furcal
    Pierre
    Kemp
    ARod
    Kent
    Martin
    Loney
    Ethier


    and we still have Kershaw in the system. And LaRoche to be dealt for a pitcher.

    I was thinking if we did get Hunter maybe his great attitude for the game might rub off on Matt Kemp, another value to him being signed here. He's mentioned in interviews on Best Damn that he would like to play in LA. If we signed him and traded for Cabrera without losing Kemp we would do well. Dangle LaRoche, Either, and (hate saying it) Kershaw in front of the Marlins maybe they bite (no pun intended)

    Rosenthal update on Cabrera:

    Ken Rosenthal
    FOXSports.com, Updated 1 hour ago


    ORLANDO, Fla. - The Marlins are almost certain to trade third baseman Miguel Cabrera. The question is where.

    The Cabrera talks intensified at the general managers' meetings on Wednesday, with the Angels showing the heaviest interest, according to major-league sources.

    The Marlins are insisting that the Angels include second baseman Howie Kendrick, sources say. The Angels almost certainly would prefer to part with less established players. Third baseman Brandon Wood would be a strong possibility, and the Angels also could satisfy the Marlins' needs for a young catcher and young pitching.

    The Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees are among the other clubs talking to the Marlins about Cabrera. The Red Sox, however, are trying to re-sign third baseman Mike Lowell and the Yankees' chances of landing Cabrera might diminish after comments by owner George Steinbrenner's son Hank, who said that the team would not trade any of its top three pitching prospects for a position player.

    The Yankees still could include a pitcher besides Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain or Ian Kennedy; Class AA right-hander Alan Horne would be one possibility. But even then, the Yankees' offer likely would be topped by at least one of the other clubs.

    For the Angels, the acquisition of Cabrera would serve a dual purpose, enabling the team to avoid signing Alex Rodriguez in free agency and creating a delicate situation with right fielder Vladimir Guerrero. If the Angels gave Rodriguez for $30 million per season, it would be more than double what they are paying Guerrero. Cabrera, who is two years away from free agency, is not yet at the salary level of either player.

    The interest in Cabrera from both Los Angeles teams increases the Marlins' leverage, as does the interest from both the Red Sox and Yankees. Rodriguez also stands to benefit if Cabrera is traded, even though he would lose a potential suitor. If Cabrera goes to the Angels, it would make Rodriguez that much more desirable to the Dodgers, and vice versa.
