Anyone know how Daniel Cabrera's a.k.a. D Train Wreck -- rehab starts went?

He did make 1 or 2, right? What level were they?

What were his stats?

Did he walk everyone but the hot dog vendor again?

How many K's?

I am still a believer in Daniel Cabrera. Yes, and I believe in true love and the tooth fairy, too.

On his rehab assignment, Cabrera pitched 4 innings at AA Bowie; surrendering 0 hits, and striking out 7. The big # is the BB and the good news is he walked just 1.

It is those damned BB, isn't it? You look at his other numbers -- 33 hits and 43 K in 41.3 IP -- and they suggest the ability to succeed. But the 39 BB!

If you are a gambler with nothing left to lose in terms of era and whip then Daniel Cabrera is your man. The rewards will come. I just worry that umpires will call him based on his rep and he won't be given even the slightest margin for error.

I believe in Daniel Cabrera...oh, did I tell you that I also believe I can fly....

I don't know if believe is the right word but I'm intrigued by Cabrera. He's got a great arm and K's a lot of hitters. Like you said, his control is the problem. He's only 24. A lot of young pitchers have had contol problems and got it under control.

Thanks for the update

It's not that I'm desperate; I... I... <whimper> I suffer from JSRS.

Several years ago, I had a player on my squad -- a young, talented pitcher -- LOTS of K's, ERA through the roof, hardly any wins. And I... I... I dropped him. Didn't trade him or anything -- just LEFT him on the waiver wire for the jackals to FEED ON! Sorry.

Anyway, I know D Train Wreck is not anywhere's close -- but I still feel the effects of JSRS -- Johann Santana Regret Syndrome.

(Thanks for the update.)

Had him last year and trust me...he's not worth the trouble. One game he'll pitch 8 innings striking out 10 and the next game he'll be back to his 6 innings and 5 strike outs, 6 BB, and allowing 5 or 6 runs. :-t

Pretty good game against the Bluejays tonight... except for those 5 walks!! He went 5 innings, 3 hits, 0 ERs, 9 ks!! to get the win...

Is this a good sign because of all of his other stats, or a bad sign because of the 5 walks?

I just dropped Oliver Perez for him. I figure, what do I have to lose?

If Cabrera could keep his walks down he would be an ace for any fantasy team.
