Yankees Might Go After Miggy
Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald believes that the New York Yankees will attempt to acquire third-baseman Miguel Cabrera from the Florida Marlins, with Melky Cabrera possibly being included in the package. As for Miguel, he's likely going to get $11M or so in arbitration, and will only rise from there. There's no doubt he's soon going to be out of the Marlins' range and they will have to trade him.
Makes complete sense for the Yankees, as he's definitely hall-of-fame caliber and still extremely young. He's also the only third-baseman that is somewhat available, enjoying a stellar .320 34HR 119RBI season with the lowly Marlins.
