I say go with Miggy Cabrera . He could very well lead the MLB in HRs this year! Serious MASHER! I know you said you like Cano , BUT why don't you just target Uggla in the next couple rounds after because he is usually going around the 3-4th rds.

Miguel Cabrera is outraged over Robinson Cano's suspension for taking an MLB-banned substance.

The Tigers first baseman said he knows the Mariners star well and that Cano would never take a banned drug.

“I know Canó for a lot of years and I know he didn’t cheat,” Cabrera told the Detroit Free Press. “I’m f—ing mad right now."

“His doctor prescribed the medication. I think he got all the paperwork. Why he get positive? I don’t understand that. If it’s something for him to get better.”

Cano is having a career year and his OPS is .953. Cano has never eclipsed 30 HR' s or 100 RBI; Cabrera already achieved those numbers THIS YEAR. The only plus in regards to Cano is defense, due to the fact he plays a more demanding up the middle position.

Cano's suspension was announced Tuesday after it was revealed he tested positive for Furosemide, a masking agent that dilutes urine samples. In a released statement, Cano said he didn't take the drug to cheat, but that it was prescribed to him by a Dominican doctor to help treat an ailment.

Cano, who is out 6-8 weeks with a broken bone in his hand, will have to serve an 80-game suspension. The ban will begin immediately.
