Found April 07, 2012 on More Hardball:
While More Hardball is monitoring Miguel Cabrera's error total at 3rd base this season, we'll also be keeping an eye on his Angels counterpart- Mark Trumbo, who committed 2 errors on their Opening Night. He's now on pace for 324 errors this season. This is all tongue-in-cheek, but the truth is neither of these players have the skill set to man the hot corner, but because their clubs need their bats in the lineup, more blunders are sure to come. To be fair, Trumbo never played a game at 3rd before this season.
