I saw Tampa Bay as a possible landing spot for Doumit from the Pirates as well.

Blockbuster three-way trade on the verge
The blockbuster three-way trade that would send top young pitcher Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks, Curtis Granderson to the Yankees and good young players to the Tigers appears to be on the verge of getting done. The three teams have reached an agreement on players, but they are still reviewing medical records.

Rich get richer.  Can't believe that the Tigers would part with the greatness that is Edwin Jackson

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4725108

The New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and Detroit Tigers are on the verge of the first major trade of baseball's winter meetings, a deal that would send Tigers outfielder Curtis Granderson to New York, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

In the trade, the Diamondbacks would obtain Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, while the Tigers will pick up Max Scherzer, Phil Coke and outfield prospect Austin Jackson.

The deal would give the Yankees a starting center fielder. Starting outfielder Johnny Damon and designated hitter Hideki Matsui are both free agents.

In return, the Tigers would get a hard thrower in Scherzer and a well-regarded prospect in Austin Jackson, while the Diamondbacks get a pair of starting pitchers in Edwin Jackson and Kennedy.

Tigers Miguel Cabrera to Boston?

Miguel Cabrera's name hangs on the periphery of any discussion about improving the Red Sox offense this winter. There are more arguments against. He's had issues with alcohol. He could balloon into a nose tackle. He's due $126 million the next six years. It would take a mountain of prospects to pry him from the Tigers, who say they're not selling. And yet despite all of the above, it's hard to shake the feeling that he'd fit perfectly with the Sox. Louie Eljaua thinks so. He's the international scouting director who signed Cabrera to the Florida Marlins for nearly $2 million as a 16-year-old Venezuelan in 1999. The former Red Sox executive has remained in touch with the first baseman since and says his personal experiences run counter to Cabrera's public portrayal. -- Boston Herald

Rays Carl Crawford to ChiSox?

Sources with Tampa Bay and the Sox said the sides had talked several times this offseason, not only checking out closer Bobby Jenks and his availability in a deal, but more specifically a trade that would have sent Carlos Quentin to the Rays for Carl Crawford. Crawford, 28, will make $10 million this season and will then be a free agent commanding elite-status money. With the Sox already handcuffed with two big salaries in Alex Rios and Jake Peavy, well, that's not how they want to operate. On the other hand, Quentin, 27, has just over two years of major-league service, so he will be under Sox control for at least four more years. -- Chicago Sun-Times

Tigers are dumping the salaries.  You guys should be used to seeing that.

I would be pissed about this if it happened. I am not overly against dealing CC if it has to be done because of economics, but I don't like Quentin at all.

those were just from the rumor wire -

it appears that the Rays will try to win with practically the same lineup from the 2009 season - meanwhile the Yankees have only gotten better......

the Rays only chance of winning is if the majority of Bosox and Yankee players have major injuries next season.

Tigers got a good deal. Granderson has been slowly declining every year and still can't hit lefties.
