Maybin and Miller not untouchable; Tigers opening up to trade possibilities

December 4, 2007

By JON PAUL MOROSI

FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The assumption that the Tigers would not make a big trade during this week’s winter meetings was always conditional: As long as they refused to trade outfielder Cameron Maybin, and as long as they refused to trade left-hander Andrew Miller, they would need to be spectators in all sweepstakes for the biggest names in baseball.

Maybin was untouchable, many in the industry believed. Miller was virtually untouchable, too.

At some point in the last 24 hours, though, the philosophy seems to have changed.

The club has had internal discussions about whether they should include Maybin and Miller in trade offers – a development that could immediately vault them into trade discussions for Oakland right-hander Dan Haren, Florida third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Florida left-hander Dontrelle Willis.

The Tigers and Marlins have discussed both Miller and Maybin, but it is not clear if they would be available in the same deal.

Detroit is believed to have more interest in Cabrera than Willis. Cabrera is a personal friend of Tigers first baseman Carlos Guillen.

Detroit has a greater need for pitching than offense, and Haren is at the top of the Tigers’ list – ahead of Johan Santana, even – among the pitchers that could be dealt.

One industry official indicated to the Free Press today that Detroit would be willing to include Miller in a trade offer for Haren. That could pique the A’s interest, since their front office is said to be very fond of Miller.

The Tigers also have several prospects – notably shortstop/second baseman Scott Sizemore, utility man Michael Hollimon, and first baseman Jeff Larish – who have the good plate discipline Oakland likes in position players.

An offer of Maybin and Miller could overwhelm the A’s. Given the choice, the Tigers would prefer to deal Miller rather than Maybin.

Detroit showed interest in Willis earlier this off-season, and the Tigers have long had an interest in Cabrera, whom Detroit assistant general manager Al Avila signed during his tenure with the Marlins.

The Tigers would likely need to part with Maybin in any trade for Cabrera or Willis, because of the Marlins’ lack of a long-term centerfielder.

I would make this trade with the Marlins. Both Cabrera and Willis are young AND experienced players. As much as we like the "potential" of Miller and Maybin, it is still only "potential"!!

A World Series RIGHT NOW appeals to me greatly!!

NO to Willis. If we're going to trade Maybin and Miller get Cabrera and Haren even if it includes some marginal prospects, too...

I'm not sure if I like any of these ideas or not...not saying I dislike them but I just haven't had the time to ponder them I guess.

Sorry. I'm upset about Miller, too though. I was a closet fan of his and Willis does not impress me at all. I think we could've got Haren for him (Miller).

If we had gotten Haren, I think this would be easier to swallow... I mean... WILLIS??! Give me a Censored break... this was just plain stupid.

Pretend like it's 2005 - he was good!

Maybe he just needs to take a piss in public again....when'd he do that? He was good back then.

I have no clue, and I don't care.... he's washed up, even my Angel's fan friend who never pays attention to baseball, that was the first thing he said "Isn't Willis washed up now?" good christ... even bandwagon fans know it...
