Cabera hurt or lazy?

Postby pgmer123 » Wed Apr 25, 2007 1:59 am

This is my first year as a miggy owner and watching the marlins. He doesn't run out ground balls and today he hit a shot to right and stopped at first. Either he is hurt or has Manny Syndrome. Anybody follow miggy to know the real deal?

He's not fast, but I've also heard a lot of rumors about him being lazy.

I heard a rumor that he eats catsup on his eggs.

As long as he hits dingers he can conga to first, wont bother me if he lays on the ground and third and uses it for a pillow.

Me too.. just the other day, I overheard Miggy's, sister's, boyfriend's, cousin's, former roommate talking about how Miggy sits on the couch all day eating Doritos and leaves crumbs everywhere. Gosh!

wow, this is dumb.


The all lazy M-Cab did hit 50 doubles last year. And when he wasnt being super lazy he stretched out 2 triples.


Oh and the slowpoke stole 9 bags too.


This is a "Im bored out of my mind Spring training" post not a middle of April post.

Please try to find better things to talk about.

I think the post is valid - M.Cabrera dogs it sometimes. Too bad not all ballplayers give it 100% - Eckstein anyone?

What I dont want is for him to start acting like A Rowand (mr Hustle my way into a DL stint), and kill himself stretching a single into a possible double.. when he can just jog down to first on this one and then hit the next one 485 feet.

I didnt draft him for his work ethic.

I want Taters, Dingers, Stand shots, Long balls, Mashed taters.
