We didn't get Cabrera, but maybe...

We could pry Josh Willingham from the Marlins.

Hear me out. With the trade that sent Cabrera and Willis to the Tigers, the Marlins grabbed some nice position players... most specifically Cameron Maybin and Mike Rabelo. With these additions, the Marlins now have two very serviceable catchers and a glut of young talented outfielders. Where does this leave Josh Willingham?

As it sits right now, Willingham is the starting left fielder. However, the Marlins may want to make room to start Cody Ross, a 26 yr old outfielder who hit .335 with 12 home runs in only 66 games last year.

Now, I know the last thing we need is more outfielders. But Willingham plays a pretty good C, a position where we could possibly want to get younger. This would also make Molina expendable, and a proven catcher is a hot commodity in today's market.

Now, this would take some shrewd bargaining by Sabean (which means this will NEVER happen), but here's my plan...

Sanchez (and Hennessey?) to Marlins for Willingham (and other?)
Lowry and Molina to the Reds for Votto or Encarnacion and a prospect.

Now, this is all pure speculation, and feel free to rip me apart, but it seems like this could work. Let me know what you think.
