Melky Cabrera in the show

Postby nettles3Ball-star » Thu Jul 07, 2005 2:38 pm

The Yanks have brought up Melky Cabrera and he will be starting in CF tonite. This should certainly move Womack to the bench.

I'll look for the link, but got the info off NYY Fans and Bronx Banter.

From a fantasy perspective, I admit it's probably no big splash.

This should probably be in the Yankee forum, but nonetheless it's actually exciting for me since I've been following Melky for a little while now. I don't think he's anything too great, but he's worth a shot.

At first I thought they were trying to build up his name, which I'm sure is part of it, but apparently they are just reaching for anything they can get. They've tried alot of things in CF but none of them have worked. I guess they have nothing to lose considering this guy can't be any worse than Blowmack.

I can just imagine the headlines and the John Sterling homerun calls for Melky though... :-b

one source:

(Trenton, NJ)- The Trenton Thunder, the Double-A Affiliate of the New York Yankees, have announced that Melky Cabrera, who began the 2005 season with the Thunder, has been promoted to the New York Yankees and is scheduled to start tonight against Cleveland.



Cabrera was the Opening Day centerfielder in Trenton where he batted .267 with 9 HR and 44 RBI in 75 games. He holds a share of the longest hitting streak for the Thunder this season- nine games. While with the Thunder, the 20-year-old was named to the XM Satellite Radio All-Star "Futures Game" on Sunday, July 10th at Comerica Park in Detroit, MI.



On June 28, Cabrera was promoted to AAA Columbus where he batted .324 with 3 HR and 11 RBI in 9 games.



Cabrera is in his 4th professional season since being signed as a non-drafted free agent (11/13/01) by the Yankees.

OK, this is now the 3rd thread about Melky Cabrera, who is a low-impact fantasy player anyway.

Let's start a pool on what Sterling's catch phrase will be regarding Cabrera.

There's your basic...

"Got Melky?"

Then there's...

"Cabrera hits one to the Melky Way!!"

If he sucks, there might be...

"Melk Dud"

:-?

I posted this earlier this morning, but it got moved to the YANKEES forum.

I posted some scouting info there as well if anyone is interested.
