BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Ben, what position do you see Asdrubal Cabrera playing next season? It seems like 2B or 3B most likely, especially if he's traded, but even wherever he signs in free agency. (I have Lindor on my farm team, just trying to plan infield positions next year). Thanks a lot -Tim
(Tim from TX)
Canít really answer this question before we know where he ends up, but a team would have to be fairly desperate at SS to play him there, I think. 2B probably most likely, best fantasy days certainly behind him. (Ben Carsley)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many more big call-ups do you think will happen this season, and who do you think they will be?
(Graham from Richmond, VA)
There wonít be too many more, but a few. Noah Syndergaard should get a call. The Mets have to get that poor kid out of Vegas. Lindor could get a chance once the Indians are out of things, especially if they move Asdrubal Cabrera. Joc Pederson will get called up to the Rays when they trade him for David Price. Wait, what? (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lindor Question #2: Why haven't the Indians traded Asdrubal Cabrera yet?
(Ace Black from PA)
Because, as you just said, Francisco Lindor will likely be starting the season in Double-A. (Ronit Shah)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)All but one of those SS are in the NL. Who will be top five in the AL in 2015?
(Jim from Boston)
Reyes would be #1 followed by Elvis Andrus, Ben Zobrist, Alexei Ramirez, and Asdrubal Cabrera. Yikes...I didn't realize what a drop off there was at SS in the AL compared to previous years. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor gets the call by ____ and produces as a top ____ SS
(Ziggy from Marley)
Could be next year, by the end of the season. That said, Cleveland still has Asdrubal Cabrera under contract next season ($10 million). They could trade him, but Lindor isn't ready now, so they'd need a stop-gap at shortstop and by definition stop-gaps aren't as good as non-stop-gaps so the team would likely be taking a hit there. I'd guess they'll hold on to Cabrera and if they're not in contention by the deadline, they'll deal him and in a perfect world, Lindor would be knocking down the door to the majors in Triple-A at that point and they could just call him up.

But I'll say he gets a September call up and rides the bench mostly. (Matthew Kory)
2013-09-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)We just started round 1 of the playoffs, and my shortstop situation is dire. Who would you choose the rest of the season among Asdrubal Cabrera, Yunel Escobar, and Jose Iglesias?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Hi Alex. That's pretty dire.

This answer depends mostly on the rest of your roster. I think I'd stay away from Iglesias. He has already cooled off, and while he is in a strong line-up (which helps with the runs/RBI), I think he's the weakest choice of the three. That leaves Cabrera and Escobar. Escobar is the safer choice while Asdrual has the higher ceiling. If you need to play it safe, I'd go with Yunel. But the more I look at the two, I think I'd roll the dice on Cabrera. Cabrera's bad year is almost as good as Yunel's 2013. Assuming Cabrera's healthy, he should put up similar numbers. The only drawback with Cabrera is that he has been sitting at time for Mike Aviles. Still, I'd take the shot on Cabrera bouncing back this month. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Cargo for the duo of Asdrubal Cabrera and Doug Fister?
(Brian from IL)
No. Love both of those players, but you need more for a surefire second rounder, borderline first rounder (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)I inherited a team in a Dynasty: I need a 2B and a SS. Asdrubal Cabrera and Danny Espinosa are available(Espinosa has 2B and SS eligibility. However, I'm in the middle of a rebuilding and Oscar Taveras is available along with Gerrit Cole. I have 1st pick. Who would you go with? I am leaning Taveras.
(MerleDixon from PA)
Me too. (Paul Singman)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the supposed asking prices right now for Shin-Soo Choo and Asdrubal Cabrera right now? I hear astronomical. Also, are you a big Run-DMC fan?
(Steve G. from Athens, OH)
Run DMC are in the pantheon, man. Up there with Rakim, PE, NWA, etc. The eponymous debut record is what got me into hip-hop in the first place. Gods.

I don't move Cabrera unless I got a MASSIVE return. Up-the-middle starters are worth their weight in gold, almost literally.

I'm a big Choo fan, but maybe if I'm Cleveland I wait til midseason and move him to a contender. Although the OF market is pretty tight right now, maybe you can get a premium for him from someone like PHI? Not sure what I'd need to get in return. But CLE is in a good position because they don't NEED to move him right now. Seller's market. (Ian Miller)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Completely Gratuitous 4-Team Blockbuster Trade Proposal: -Mets send R.A. Dickey to Red Sox, send Lucas Duda + Domingo Tapia to Indians & send Wilmer Flores to Diamondbacks -Red Sox send Archie Bradley + Anthony Ranaudo to Indians -Indians send Asdrubal Cabrera to Diamondbacks & send Shin-Soo Choo + Vinnie Pestano to Mets -Diamondbacks send Justin Upton to Mets Care to offer gratuitous thoughts?
(mattstupp from NYC)
Math makes my head hurt (Ian Miller)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you attach any credence to the rumor that the Indians are asking an arm and a leg (specifically, Lance Lynn's and Joe Kelly's arms, and Matt Adams' gynormous legs along with the rest of him) of St. Louis for Asdrubal Cabrera? That would be an Adams-sized overpay, wouldn't it?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Nice one, Bill ó†and the asking price for Cabrera at this point does seem exorbitant. Paul Hoynes from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer characterized it as "three to four players," at least two of whom are likely to be top prospects. Cabrera is a reliable, two-win player signed for $16.5 million through 2014, so it's understandable that Chris Antonetti doesn't want to give him away. But given his iffy defense at shortstop, and the other options at 2B and 3B, unless teams get desperate (and I don't think the Cardinals are), that demand is unlikely to be met. (Daniel Rathman)

2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can keep 2 of the 3, no salaries or penalties - Asdrubal Cabrera, Brett Lawrie, or Craig Kimbrel. Who ya got?
(Vernon from Sioux Falls)
Kimbrel and Lawrie, if for no other reason than because he'll carry higher trade value than Droobs. I also think he'll be pretty good too, but maybe not as good as some others seem to think. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the arbitration salaries that Asdrubal Cabrera (5.2 MM) and the Indians (3.75MM) exchanged, do you think it may be in Cabrera's best financial interest to go to arbitration considering his service time, Silver Slugger award, and home run totals?
(Jamie from Cleveland)
The arbitration process is never a positive given that it involves advocates for one side saying that a player is really good and the other trying to make the case that no, he really sucks (while still paying him a lot of money). It's never fun to hear yourself denigrated by your boss, even if you don't get fired in the end. That said, the gap here is wide enough that a midpoint settlement seems a reach and Cabrera may have to go. (Steven Goldman)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone talks about Jurickson's average to above average tools. IF all works out for him, does he have an Asdrubal Cabrera (the one of this year) upside?
(Greg31 from Milwaukee)
More upside than that. If Profar develops as planned, he is going to hit for average, with OBP skills and at least average pop (10-15). Factor in his above-average defensive projections and Profar could be a 5-7 WAR type. (Jason Parks)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Asdrubal Cabrera ... playing way over his head, or did we vastly underestimate him?
(dianagram from NYC)
He might be the biggest surprise of 2011, in my book. The K% and BABIP are the same as last yera, and the added power is driving up his BA. I want to say that it's a complete fluke, but I don't think it is. He's hitting his home runs to all fields with more distance than last year. I don't know if he'll maintain this pace, but he looks like a different hitter in terms of power this year then in years past. And the speed isn't that far out of line with our expectations coming in. He'll start getting caught a little bit, but another 10 steals the rest of the way isn't unreasonable. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any hope the AL Fans don't elect Jeter to the All-Star game?
(Terry from NJ)
Oh, I would hope not, but there aren't any worthy long-time stars in the AL at shortstop any more, are there? I would expect that Asdrubal Cabrera would get some love from the fans with the Indians leading the division, and maybe Alexei Ramirez. Peralta, Aybar, Andrus. Surely the voters will find someone other than Jeter. (Mike Fast)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)The national media seems surprised by this Asdrubal Cabrera guy. What are your thoughts on his ability to be a long term league top 10 shortstop?
(jhardman from Fiery Cuyahoga Canoe)
I think that depends on how long the current league-wide shortstop drought persists. As long as the list of offensive standouts at the position begins and ends with Tulo and Hanley, sure. He's a guy whose value will always fluctuate with his batting average, so while the hits are falling now, he could go through extended periods of substantially less production. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Asdrubal Cabrera will be the SS in 2012, AFAIK. Unless Jhonny gets re-upped, then all bets are off. But at 2B, you have Cord Phelps, Jason Kipnis, Jason Donald, and Luis Valbuena. None of whom I want to see on the other side of the diamond.
(buffum from Austin TX)
Well there's always trades and free agency I guess. (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Some forecasting systems, and some forecasters, see a potential for averageness out of the Tribe. What am I missing?
(bigrick0016 from Cleveland)
Well, maybe Carmona's actually back - he's looked great this spring, and every inning he throws is one less that the poundable lefties who don't miss bats like Sowers, Laffey and Huff don't throw. Sizemore will be healthy, LaPorta will be around all year, Asdrubal Cabrera and Shin Soo Choo are for real, and Carlos Santana could be along this summer. That's a whole bag of interesting stuff there, and while there are no guarantees everything pans out, I'd at least buy a ticket to watch. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Top ten GMs I can't think of ten amazing GMs out there at the moment. Shapiro has made some great moves, some ok moves, and then some horrible moves. Colon move - awesome Lee trade - not so much Casey Blake trade - highway robbery Matt Lawton - very bad Trade for Asdrubal Cabrera - a steal. Hafner deal - bad even if his shoulder didn't take a dive.
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
So here's one yes on Shapiro. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on how special of a 2009 season Asdrubal Cabrera and Elvis Andrus had as very young shortstops with good-great defense and solid offense?
( Aaron from YYZ)
I think Cabrera is a little ahead of Andrus at this point but that Andrus will have the better career. I like both of them a lot. (John Perrotto)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any comments on Asdrubal Cabrera's season? Seems to me he's quietly having a great year. .315/.363/.449's not bad for a slick fielding 23 yr old shortstop.

I think he's just about ready to become a star. I get to see Cleveland quite a bit in person and this kid is the real deal. Many Gold Gloves in his future. (John Perrotto)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)People in Cleveland are clamoring for Jhonny Peralta to move to 3B. Isn't he one of the best SS? Wouldn't the Tribe be better off signing a one year stop gap or giving Wes Hodges the gig in 2009?
(warclub from Strongsville, OH )
Asdrubal Cabrera is the best shortstop the Indians have, and should be playing there. Whether that means Peralta at second base, shortstop or another team is irrelevant.
Eric Wedge pinch-hit Jamey Carroll for Andy Marte the other day in a high-leverage situation. Why? What good is the rest of your season if not to find out if Andy Marte can be a major leaguer? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I ask because the in the Indians team comments, it mentions that Asdrubal Cabrera will be league-average, but his player comment says he'll be "pretty damned good." I know league average performance is not something to scoff at, but those statements still seem contradictory.

In cases where dual authors seemed to make statements that didn't quite jibe, we asked them to go into a room and duke it out until we had achieved consistency. Without taking the time out now to revisit my notes on the chapter, the examples you cite feel close enough to agreement that the editorial crew probably didn't feel that they had to arbitrate that one.

2008-01-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Asdrubal Cabrera? Is he the real deal?
(ericturner29 from chicago)
Shhhh. Quiet down. Some of my stratomatic league competitors are reading this. I am NOT saying that I'm extremely high on Cabrera. I am NOT saying that I see a lot of Edgardo Alfonzo (the dominant, pre-back problems Alfonzo) in him. I do NOT want him on my fantasy team. Capeche? (Rany Jazayerli)
2008-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Asdrubal Cabrera: real deal, or flash in the pan?
(ericturner29 from Chicago)
Real deal. Not a superstar but a solid big-league middle infielder for many years. (John Perrotto)
