Trade proposal for Miggy and Willis

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone not sure if you guys remember me I am an Astros fan living in Miami that lurks here and occasionally posts here.

 

Anyways all of this talk about the Marlins looking to possibly trade Willis and Cabrera got me thinking of how nice it would be to see them in Astro uniforms. I came up with a hypothetical trade situation and wanted to see what you guys thought about it.

 

Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis for Michael Bourn, Ty Wigginton, Troy Patton, Hector Gimenez and Matt Albers

 

This trade gives you guys a starting CF, replacement 3B and a stud young pitcher in Patton along with a serviceable pitcher in Albers. Gimenez could be the wild card here. He is coming back from rotator cuff surgery but he was scheduled to be the starting catcher for the Astros until the recent emergence of Towles but if healthy could be a really good catcher for you guys for years to come and in my book is a much better option than Yorvit. Also with the exception of Ty Wigginton all of these players would be under club control for a few years to come.

 

Let me know what you guys think. Also feel free to call me an idiot, moron or whatever but only if you do it in a way that is funny, witty or entertaining. ;)

You do know your new GM is Ed Wade right?

 

He will rape your farm system and get rid of all of your young tallent for Middle Relievers...

 

Ala Polanco for Urbina, that worked out well.

 

You traded away lidge for, A CF that cant hit... MR in Geary who has lost his edge, and AA prospect who is on the verge of being in his late20's and has a hole bigger than the grand canyon in his swing.

 

 

have fun w. that
