Dodgers lead race for (Miguel) Cabrera

Given that Rosenthal was spot on with the Kobayashi signing, I'm willing to take this story with fewer than the usual number of grains of salt.

The Dodgers stand a better chance of acquiring Cabrera from the Marlins, major-league sources say, if they are willing to part with outfielder Matt Kemp along with third baseman Andy LaRoche and minor-league left-hander Clayton Kershaw.

Yeah, there's a big 'IF' in there. We had a discussion about trading for Cabrera a while back. What do you think about the Dodgers potentially trading Kemp, LaRoche and Keshaw for two expensive year of Migeul Cabrera? Good move by the Dodgers? Do the Marlins make out like bandits?

Here's the part of the story that really gets me....

If the Dodgers traded Kemp, it would increase the likelihood that they would sign a free-agent center fielder and move Juan Pierre to left field. Club officials are leaning toward Aaron Rowand, who would be less expensive than Torii Hunter and perhaps Andruw Jones.

At this point it seems like signing A-Rod ($28M/yr) would have been cheaper than trading away three cost-controlled players and replacing them with Migeul Cabrera ($12M/yr), an overpaid CF ($12M/yr) and a free agent pitcher (in place of Kershaw). Plus, I think the production overall would have been better with A-Rod and the kids versus Miggy, overpaid CF and Mr. Free Agent Pitcher.
