ASDRUBAL CABRERA RUMORS

On Asdrubal Cabrera, Francisco Lindor and wanting good things too soon

In life, we often yearn for what we don’t have. “The grass is always greener on the other side” mentality. It happens. We take for granted what is right in front of us. In sports, the same thing often plays out. Fans fall out of favor with certain players, wish for a former star to return, desire another team’s starter or hope for the highly touted prospect to finally arrive...

Second Thoughts Game #11: White Sox 9, Indians 6

As tempting as it is to indulge in the frenzy of panic that tends to emerge after losses - or steep oneself in the intoxicating thrill of victory - it's frequently more useful to try to find the good in losses and the bad in wins; not only does this give one the sobriety necessary to make it through a season where good turns will be woven in approximately equal length as bad...

Cleveland Indians: Future of Asdrubal Cabrera in Cleveland

Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera’s future with the ball club seems bleak, but he is one of the most vital pieces to the team this season. Bashed for his recent play and what seems a lack of interest, if he can find his ways of old, he can definitely help the Tribe get back in the MLB Playoffs in 2014. Cabrera will not be with the team in 2015, as that is pretty much...

Cabrera Poised For a Big Season

The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

Swinging for the Fences: Waiting to trade Cabrera

Last weekend may have been the most miserable winter weekend I've experienced in a while, but even while the polar vortex returns for a curtain call this week, I couldn't be more excited for baseball season.

Asdrubal Cabrera and problematic bouncebacks

After a 2013 Wild Card game performance in which Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and the single most deflating play of the season, a double play in the bottom of the 4th with the bases loaded, the phrase ‘bounce back’ was not an appropriate word for Cleveland audiences. However, as the Browns’ and Cavaliers’ seasons have progressed and impressed upon fans’...

Declining plate discipline is sinking Cabrera in 2013

The idea of Asdrubal Cabrera batting cleanup would have been a perfectly good one two years ago when the shortstop hit 25 home runs and owned a 119 weighted runs created plus (wRC+). In fact, it would have worked last year when Cabrera's home runs dipped to 16 but his wRC+ stayed solid at 113. This year, however, Cabrera's .293 on-base percentage, 93 wRC+, and general defensive...

Cleveland Indians trade rumors: Starting pitching

As we enter the 2013 All-Star break, the Cleveland Indians sit at 51-44, just 1.5 games behind the Detroit Tigers for first place in the American League Central.
