Cabrera Called Up!!

Postby mth1185 » Fri Jun 20, 2003 9:56 am

The miami herald reports that the marlins are calling up cabrera to replace todd hollandsworth and have already named him an everyday outfielder. This is a huge surprise to me as I didn't expect him till late august. I believe this a pr move, why else would the cheap marlins eat this season in terms of arbitration? I think it means that lowell and probably castillo and maybe even pudge will be traded very soon

Definitely sounds like they have a couple other moves in mind... You're right - this is definitely a surprising decision...

Lowell/Pudge/Castillo have been on the block for awhile now. Cabrera getting called up is just a move to drive the price up. Get everyone's final offers and make the trades.

I went after him. I probably didn't beat anyone to him, but I'm in a 16-team league where the waiver wire is filled with platoon players. He's been a very highly rated prospect and was tearing Double-AA a new one, but man, I hope he's ready.

In my Yahoo league he hasn't even been added to the game yet.

Once he is added it will take 3 days for him to clear waivers.

I have an extra roster spot but will not be near a computer all weekend.

That stinks for me. I wanted to draft him next year in a prospect draft but if he qualifies for ROY, I can't get him. (Crossing my fingers for a cup of coffee.)

BTW, his stats in AA (266 ABs):
.365 AVG, 10 HR, 59 RBI, 46 R, 9 SB
Zack Greinke...the next Greg Maddux. LOOK IT UP!
For what it's worth.
