Has anyone heard or seen anything that would make you believe that this may be the year that Cabrera harnesses his nasty stuff and at least be a sericable starter?

He's now spent 4 seasons in the bigs starting at least 26 games each time. He's never finished with an ERA below 4.50, he's never posted a WHIP below 1.43, and he plunked 15 batters last year (2nd most in the AL). I don't think we'll be seeing a turnaround.

Just mentioning this guy makes me want to vomit.

If he plays a full season he is a near lock for league lead in BB's.

I still think he will put together a great full season. He won't sustain it but everything might click for one year.

There is always hope.

50% GB, 7.3 K/9 are great basic peripherals. That 4.8 BB/9 is the real killer of course.

I wouldn't draft him but if he keeps his BB's down in his first few starts I'd be quicker to pick him up than some other guys.

I think he is going to put it all together this year, I believe this so much that I think you should draft him. Better draft him early reach a bit this guy is money!

OK, is this sarcasm?

I am actually considering taking him in a trade...as a salary relief to my trade partner..Cabrera is at $10.

I wouldn't draft him with a 10 foot poll, but keep an eye on each and everyone of his starts. If he's able to string together a couple of starts in which he's able to stay composed and not walk a mass amount of batters, he may be worth a pick up.

i remember the community debating who was better a couple years ago.... erik Bedard or Cabrera and alot more people picked Cabrera...

my how times changed. i remember saying Cabrera will never get control of his pitches and he overthrows alot. alot of guys never figure out how to control their stuff ala Colt Griffen (ring a bell?)

stay away from Cabrera his role should be in the pen if anything imo.
