Player Profile #116: Melky Cabrera | OF | CHW

I should start this post with full disclosure: I’m a big Melky Cabrera fan. When he came up for the Yankees in 2005, playing center field as a 21-year-old rookie, I was really excited (obviously, I’m a Yankees fan). But, when Joe Torre decided to let him start against the Red Sox in a huge July game at the height of that rivalry, I knew that was a bad idea. As exciting as he...
