Informed decision? He's been removed from games all year because of his back.. And a manager can sit a guy down for no reason at all. He's the manager.

With trade out of question, Miguel Cabrera at career crossroads in 2018.

Miguel Cabrera instantly sheds weight working with LeBron James' trainer.

3d - Bradford Doolittle

Players who should be traded for their own good: Miguel Cabrera (ESPN headline)
Now Why would you trade someone with there worst trade value and coming off a season that he had injuries that gave him his worst season.

Also why trade Kinsler at his lowest trade value, unless someone over pays, trade value wise.
And yea screw the tv deal trade Fulmer and take the next 10 seasons to rebuild from nothing.

Tigers need to fix there bull pen until they do that they'll win and lose and lose more than win.

10 players in the article and 3 were Tigers. Miggy, Nick and Ian.

I only saw Cabrera and Castellanos. And the writer is stating who would benefit from a trade, from the player's viewpoint, not the team's.

Cabrera would be unlikely to be traded, but like Verlander, deserves a shot at being in the World Series again.

No team wants Castellanos, except maybe an AL team so he could DH. That limits the number of suitors. Bad teams are not going to trade for a full-time DH and most good teams do not have a hole there to fill. The article suggests that Comerica is hurting Castellanos, but that is hogwash. Castellanos has hit 19 Triples in CoPa vs 5 Triples on the Road for his career. What does that tell you? He hit .300 BAVG at home in 2017, versus .243 BAVG away. Again, CoPa is not the issue.

I did see it was for the players benefit. I agree, I don't see any team trading for either of those two players.
