Analyze this trade for me:

Jeff Francouer, OF
Jeff Francis, SP
Aramis Ramirez, 3B

for

Miguel Cabrera, 3B

I'm the one who got Cabrera.

The other guy desparately needed (and still needs) starting pitching and wanted Francouer (I think he's a Braves fan or something). He also has ARod and Ortiz, so Cabrera was just sitting on his bench.

As for me, I have plenty of outfielders (Carl Crawford, Torii Hunter, Magglio Ordonez, Nick Swisher, Hideki Matsui, Ichiro) and picked up Eric Byrnes after making the trade.

I'm also OK on starting pitching (Brandon Webb, Cole Hamels, Dontrelle Willis, Brad Penny, Javier Vazquez, Zack Grienke).

I probably hurt myself a little giving up Francis, but Cabrera is going to look good in my lineup.

baseballs averages say cabrerra should get his shit together soon but who knows for sure. How often do you guys get to switch your lineups.

I did give up a lot, but Francouer was just sitting on my bench...I have a ton of outfielders. It hurt a little to give up Francis, but Cabrera is quite an upgrade over Ramirez.

i think whoever dealt cabrera got a lot more than they expected from their panic sale of him. but if francour was benchwarming the deal seems good. as long as nobody gets hurt.

what has towlinsky looked like this year? He should be ok with coors field but he has been quiet so far.
