An insider's view: Marlins trade bait?

Assuming the Marlins received several young players from the Angels in any trade for Miguel Cabrera, what exactly would the Marlins be getting? One ex-Marlin has a pretty good sense.

trading a lot of young talent for one huge talent makes it hard. The Mathis case thats hard because i would for the angels to keep him. I really think he's coming out of his shell. Get rid of Nap. Howie, well that just makes me sad. He is going to be amazing i believe. He is already really good but he is only going to get better. Willits has become a favorite of mine. His hard work and play 110% is great but we just don't have room for him unfortunately. Let him go start on anyone elses roster and be happy for him because i really think he'll shine. If we're keeping Sheilds then get rid of Saunders, there the same person when it comes to pitching but i would rather keep Saunders. Santana, well he was shakey last season but he's young and I think he'll come out of his bad groove but our bull pin is pretty deep. M.C is amazing and we need his power thats for sure. Vlady needs help and no one on last years roster can do it. Thank god for Torii Hunter. I really think that was a big moral boost for the fans and the organization but M.C. will sweeten and seal the deal for a World Series apperance next season for sure.

There's no way in hell you can trade Howie.You cannot plug in a hole by creating another.The Angels have to much young talent without having to trade Howie.There's other 3rd Basements available Tejada,Glaus,Rolen and Crede.None of them as good as Miguel C.But all of them better together with Howie at 2nd.Then Figgins and M.C.

It is doubtful the Angels would trade 4 for 1 unless they could sign Cabrera to a multi-year contract first. It would be difficult for Cabrera to commit to such a deal when he has never played for the Angels and when he would be going to a different league. At his age and with his abilities, he can afford to wait a couple of more years before settling in on a long range deal.

I LOVE THE MARLINS AND I WILL BE VERY SAD IF THEY GET CABRERA TRADED BUT I THINK THEY SHOULD BE A BETTER TEAM NEXT YEAR WITH MIGGEY OR WITHOUT HIM.
ALL THE MARLINS NEEDS IS A BETTER CATCHER AT LEAST ONE THAT CATCH THE BALL AND DON'T GET SCARED WHEN EXPECTING A PLAY IN HOME PLATE.THEY NEEDS A STRONGER HAND TOO FROM FREDDY GONZALEZ AND A GOOD STARTER PITCHER .

IN CABRERA TRADE MARLYNS NEED FILL FOUR BIG HOLES, AN INFIELDER, A CATCHER , A CENTERFIELD AND AN STARTING PITCHER. ANGELS CAN PROVIDE THIS STUFF

I like the trade except I would take 2 Angel pitchers like Saunders and Santana. Forget Mathis offensively he is not good. People forget Olivo caught the 4 10 game winning Marlin Pitchers. Then he called a good game and 2006 and 2007 threw out a good percentage of runners.We should try to get LoDuca a trmendous contact hitter and adequate catcher. Trade Cabrera for Kendrick, Willitts, Saunders and Santana.
