Good move IMO. It gives them the flexibility to re-sign Scherzer and Cabrera. Miggy can move back to 1B, while Nick Castellanos, one of Detroit's top prospects, can move to his natural position at 3B. Now if they can find/sign a LF, they're in great shape....

This is simply not true.
Let me explain it this way. Labs are natural born retrievers. They are predisposed to retrieve things, just as collies are predisposed to herd things, just as hounds are predisposed to track things. Well, unfortunately, pit bulls are predisposed to be aggressiv...
