I'm glad to see that the The New Evil Empire won't just be able to waltz their way to another World Series next year. Getting Cabrera and Willis is definitely going to help Detroit. Of course, we have to wait about 5 years to see who got the better end of this deal, but it seems like a steal on paper. That's because prospects you can never be 100% sure about, because some guys just never make it once they hit the majors for whatever reason. But what was I expecting - Florida to try and get equal value? When have they ever unloaded all their players looking to get equal value? Never. And just for the record, Cabrera is ridiculously fat.
