Miguel Cabrera Staying Put

Talking to MLB.com's Jason Beck, Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski moved quickly tonight to shoot down recent ESPN speculation that first baseman Miguel Cabrera could be traded.  Said Dombrowski:

"I think it's absurd, absolutely absurd.  We have no interest in trading Miguel Cabrera.  We have had no talks regarding Miguel Cabrera. Not only is it one of the last things we would ever consider, we have an owner [Mike Ilitch] who wouldn't do it. This is our core player who's our foundation."

Given that the Tigers signed Cabrera to an eight-year, $152.3MM extension just one year ago, it didn't make sense that they'd change their mind so quickly on their investment.  Cabrera is only 26 and seems headed for an MVP-type year.
