    Damn - that'll be a blockbuster if it goes through. I think the Marlins get the better end of that one in the long run. They get a future leadoff man in Maybin and a potential ace in Miller for fat piggy Miggy and a fading Dontrelle, who's been mediocre the past couple years

    The Baseball Tonight crew was just on ESPN. Looks like a done deal.

    The other four prospects are all pitchers. Five pitchers being sent to FLA. Wow.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Marlins and Tigers are on the verge of completing a blockbuster deal that will send Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for a package of six players.

    A source familiar with the negotiations has told MLB.com that the Tigers are parting with outfielder Cameron Maybin and lefty starter Andrew Miller and four prospects for the final two players from the Marlins' 2003 World Series championship squad.

    The deal was all but finalized as of late afternoon at the Winter Meetings.

    The Tigers swooped into the sweepstakes for Cabrera and Willis on Tuesday and put together a package of players that the Marlins felt too tempting to pass up.

    Cabrera and Willis were both rookies on the Marlins '03 title team. Both are eligible for arbitration through the 2009 seasons. Cost has become a concern for Florida, making the two All-Stars expendable.

    Cabrera is a four-time All-Star who comes off a season where he batted .320 with 34 home runs and 119 RBIs. The 24-year-old made $7.4 million this past season and he is in line to earn more than $10 million in 2008.

    Willis is coming off a 10-15 season with a 5.17 ERA. While the D-Train, who made $6.45 million in 2007, is coming off his worst season, he compiled 205 1/3 innings, marking his third straight 200-plus season.
    Props to the Tigers for swooping in out of nowhere. I suppose they could have used Maybin eventually but Cabrera is still Cabrera.

    6:20 p.m., from Peter Gammons
    • The Tigers have won the Miguel Cabrera sweepstakes. Detroit acquired Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis for six players -- Cameron Maybin, Andrew Miller, catcher Mike Rabelo and three minor league prospects.

    We'll see if Dontrelle can regain his form. When the Beckett trade was made, Mike Lowell was more or less viewed as a salary dump as opposed to a valuable 3B.

    The Tigers might as well go for it as Sheffield (38) and Magglio (33) might only have a couple good years left in them. Guillen/Renteria/Pudge are also on the other side of 30.

    And they were able to snag pitcher Rick Porcello in this year's draft. One of those top prospects that fell because of Boras.

    And it's not like Cabrera and Dontrelle aren't relatively young as is. Cabrera is five days younger than Hunter Pence. And Dontrelle is in the same age range as Bonderman/Verlander.

    I think most of the league has figured out how to read Dontrelle's unique delivery. He's done progressively worse the past two seasons. I don't expect him to rebound in a major way like Beckett and Peavy did.

    Seems like one of the rare deals that will end up working out for both teams.

    Dontrelle's walk numbers are disturbingly Zito-esque. Maybe don't expect him to return to Cy Young form, but something closer an ERA in the low 4s with better control would be decent.
