The Dodgers are very close to landing Miguel Cabrera, according to major league sources. It is believed that the deal includes Matt Kemp, Andy LaRoche, and pitcher Clayton Kershaw. However, the two sides are apart on one part of the deal, and I think it is over money. It is possible the Dodgers want cash if they are parting with three top prospects, and that seems reasonable. The Angels are also in negotiations with the Marlins, but no players have been named. If the Dodgers trade Kemp, they will probably look to sign Hunter or Rowand. They are also showing interest in Tadahito Iguchi, but only if Jeff Kent does not come back. More details on this scenario as more unfolds.
