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.
Yeah, I remember when Daniel Cabrera seemed to be everyone's favorite pet target. In hindsight, I believe a good deal of folks thought Bedard was a bit too injury prone for their blood and believed D-Cab's ceiling was slightly higher, but that was sort of nitpicking because both were later mid-round to late round picks in 2006 anyway.
D-Cab's potential is quite good, but his command is just so out of whack. I'd keep him on my watch list though if he can improve, mainly to lower that walk rate while posting the healthy K/IP most have hoped for.
