Miguel Cabrera, who Marlins fans hoped to be the face of the franchise for a long time, is still being shopped around.
Those who want to see him stay can continue to pray; those who want to land him on their team must also continue to prey. And the bidding is getting intense.
The Marlins front office, charged with some of the most difficult challenges of any of their peers, continue to fight the good fight and try to get as much talent in return for Cabrera. It seems the Angels and Dodgers are ponying up quite a bit to bid for Cabrera’s rights. Stay tuned as the Marlins continue shopping around for Cabrera.
On the positive side, if there be one, the Marlins could land an immediate surplus of young hitting talent – they have needs at center field, and third base. It might help the Marlins in a few more years contend again – theoretically with a new stadium in place.
