I see no reason to think Cabrera is going to slow down. He turned 27 in April and is entering his prime, not to mention the fact that he is now sober. Everything points to him putting up monster numbers and he has done nothing but that so far. His average hasn't been below .333 once this season and I think he's the most talented hitter in the AL.
FWIW he's been worth exactly 0.72 wins based on his production in high leverage situations. Although last year he was worth -1.9 wins in those same situations, so if "clutch" is something he can control why isn't he always good?
