And if Prior could stay healthy, yada yada yada.

Fact is that Cabrera can't throw stikes consistently. It does not matter how hard you throw if you can't throw strikes. He certainly has some potential, but you can say that about a lot of pitchers that never amounted to anything much

He's very talented, but raw talent's only part of the equation. Still, that is some talent...

Half the time would be an improvement. :-°

Cabrera's biggest advantage after watching those video's is I think he's using a wiffleball!

DCab is young enough that I think that it's more valid to say he has not been able to throw strikes YET than that he 'can't throw strikes'. While he is in the majors, I think that he still has some upside. Please please please let him FIND IT this year when I have him!! :-D

It's the frequency in which they are on that matters.
