The Florida Marlins have traded Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to the Detroit Tigers for 6 prospects. That’s good news for the Mets as they will not have to deal with the players anymore. However it means that the Mets have missed out on another good pitcher this off season.
Though it seems like Omar Minaya is sitting on his hands I think he actually wanted Willis but got rebuffed. Minaya was quoted as saying “Sometimes a player is available but, heâ€™s not available to you. There are teams that donâ€™t like to trade in the division.” Sounds like Omar is a bit sour at not having the chance to bid on Willis.
