Cross Alex Cabrera off your sleeper lists...

It appears as if Cabrera, who was rumored to be drawing interest from the Braves for their 1b spot, will be staying in Japan for at least another season...

well that is a shame...

Twice the money if I read right.

It just goes to show you though that todays players care more about the money than the game

I agree DK, I hate how much some of these players are making. 25 million, 17 million, 20 million, 15 million even 2 million

In general I agree that there's far too much focus on money, but I'm not sure that that's the case here. Cabrera's had great success in Japan, and if he enjoys playing there, why not stay?

Not saying that salary isn't a part of this decision, but it may not have been the only factor. Has anyone heard any details?

none here. it is true that he enjoys playing in japan, but why not test your skills against the best for "only" 500,000 if you get MINIMUM wage?

That's true. Cabrera could come over here and flop (not likely). Then it messes up his game completely.

I haven't seen the details, but I'm going to get caught up on the news today.
