05:14 AM ET 11.09 | Let's get beyond the bad press idea here. Especially in Detroit. This city loves to forgive its athletes. They forgave Miguel Cabrera for multiple alcohol issues. They forgave Delmon Young as well. Well, maybe not forgave, but just didn't make that big of deal out of it. This is the kind of town where if you are an athlete and produce, let's just say we can forgive a few trespasses upon society. What can't be discounted is that Melky Cabrera turned 26 years old in 2011. After five full seasons in the big leagues, maybe Cabrera just started to put things together because he was figuring out how to play the game of baseball. There is plenty of baseball left on those tires.

I would be more concerned with keeping Prince out of those pastry shops the next few years.

This a better idea sign him to a minor league contract and let him prove himself worthy of a MLB contract.
