The recent history of trade demands and temerity, because Asdrubal Cabrera is not alone.

Do you remember “Operation Shutdown”?

In 2001, Derek Bell hit .173 and battled injuries as an outfielder for the Pirates. Despite this, Bell believed he was entitled to regular playing time for a bad, bad Pittsburgh team heading into 2002. General manager Dave Littlefield didn’t agree, oddly enough, noting that the Pirates had some promising (lol) guys like Armando Rios, Craig Wilson, and Rob Mackowiak in camp competing for the two outfield spots not occupied by Brian Giles.

Fantasy Players to Target: Shortstops


BP Fantasy Staff

The best value picks at a position where offense can be hard to find.

Long renowned as one of fantasy’s most shallow positions, shortstop is about to get an infusion of talent like we haven’t see in many years. The influx of strong young performers will create an opportunity both to secure new cornerstones of your fantasy franchises, as well as capitalize on veterans who fall through the cracks as owners flock to what is shiny and new.

The tater trots for August 1: four different multi-home run days, including a very interesting reviewed home run from Asdrubal Cabrera.

It was a good day for multiple tater trots. Four different players in three different games each hit two home runs on Monday. Asdrubal Cabrera, Dan Uggla, Rick Ankiel, and Derrek Lee each pulled off the feat, with Uggla and Ankiel each doing it while the other was in the field. I'd like to imagine it means there was a "multi-home run" star in the sky last night - maybe Wezen was in the Third House (or the 44th or 25th Houses) - but it's probably just one of those weird coincidences. Darn.

With All-Star selection around the corner, the BP staff fills out their ballots for who deserves to start in the Midsummer Classic.

It’s July, and that means another All-Star Game, one which—we might as well get this out of the way now—won’t be as exciting as those wonderful old All-Star Games  when important things happened, like Ted Williams breaking his elbow and Dizzy Dean breaking a toe (Williams said he was never the same hitter; Dean destroyed his arm with altered mechanics) and Ray Fosse getting run over because damn it, Pete Rose just had to win an exhibition game.

(It is at times like these that I like to recall Mickey Mantle’s immortal words on the subject of Rose: “If I had played my career hitting singles like Pete, I’d wear a dress.”)

Player Profile: Asdrubal Cabrera


Marc Normandin

Acquired for a song, the Indians' middle infielder might be the long-term answer to their problems at either spot up the middle.

After being picked up as Jhonny Peralta insurance in 2006, Asdrubal Cabrera has instead turned into Josh Barfield's replacement at second during this season. The slick-fielding 21-year-old now finds himself on a team fighting for an American League Championship Series berth during his rookie campaign. What does the future hold for this middle infielder, and what does he bring to the table for this potentially World Series bound Tribe?
