The issue is not whether Cabrera has explosive stuff or not (he does), but will his strikeout totals balance out his 11-13 win total, 4.00+ ERA and 1.35-1.40 WHIP?
In a Keeper League, at 24 years old, Cabrera has definite value.
But, if this is a non-keeper then you better balance out those numbers. The owner who drafts Matt Morris, Freddy Garcia and other boring veterans to fill out the rotation finishes higher than the maverick who grabs Grienke, or Oliver Perez, or Capuano, or Bonderman (All guys on my teams who raised my ERA and WHIP to upsetting levels).
Learn from my mistakes, go for boring, solid numbers and always weigh a pitcher's ballpark into the equation. Yoda is 100 percent correct that Cabrera is a groundball pitcher who has control problems. Good luck and remember, boring wins titles.
