Anyone see the game yesterday? Cabrera misplayed a ball hit to him and after the play Scott Olsen was cursing in Miguels direction. It didn't end there as Miguel and Scott met in the dugout and had to be seperated. Then as Olsen walks by Cabrera, Miguel uses his finger and uses it to push Scotts head. This is unlike Cabrera and I know Joe Girardi doesn't except that behavior on his team. With teams willing to deal the farm for Miguel; do you think the Marlins are more incline to deal him because Sundays game?

I have heard that Olsen call Cabrera out for not hustling. Girardi apparently agreed with Olsen so we will see what happens.

Wasnt Olsen involved in something similar with another teammate earlier this year?
I think it was with Randy Messenger.

Yes.

Cabrera booted a ball at 3rd and Olsen got in his face. Olsen is a fool.

Brantly said it right on baseball tonight.

Olsen needs to worry about his job, when you start worrying about everybody else's (or at least calling them out about it), you aren't going to be very well liked in that clubhouse.

I'm sure Scott Olsen has had bad days on the field too...

Cabrera had many moments last year from what I read. Sounds like two youngsters both having some growing pains.

I think the Fish need to ship Olson out, perhaps to the Reds for Freel. Obviously they have a cancer that needs cut out.

I take the opposite tack - I like Olsen calling out Cabrera. Miguel was loafing and barely gave any effort on the play, and Olsen let him know about it. As he was walking away Cabrera then poked him in the face with his finger. Cabrera was out of line, and loafing.

I'll take a talented pitcher who calls out lazy players every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I like it , it shows passion. He want's to win. He should have waited to cuss him after the game in the clubhouse. I wish our team showed some passion. heck I wish they would show emotion...any emotion. winners want to win. Losers just want to draw a check and pad their stats. I'll take Olsen.

Olsen grew up a Cubs fan, you guys want nothing to do with him. ;)

Used to be, you had to prove something in the Majors before you started calling people out. I looked at the guy's career stats and I was not overwhelmed.

I completely agree.

Childish and unprofessional. It's fine to call a guy out for bad play, but keep that kind of thing in the locker room, not the dugout.

for the record, he was got upset at Cabrera on the play before Miguel "loafed" to the ball. A bullet down the line by Jose Valentin, Cabrera was playing well off the line and there was no way for even Brooks Robinson to get that ball yet Olsen got upset over it.

But ramp, doesn't Cabrera have a rep as being too 'unmotivated' in his fielding?

If that's the case wouldn't Olsen, who is a bit hot-headed, have a basis?

ramp101
07-12-2006, 09:02 PM
no, he doesnt have that rep.... he just doesnt have that much range :D

the bottom line is they are both wrong, but said they were sorry, and thats that

Ramp knows more than I do about the Marlins, but there was a ton of talk right at the end of last season about Cabrera and his work ethic/attitude.

I'm not saying it's a sure fire thing, but seems like something was there.

youre right ced... but over this offseason and throughout the season he has actually been working his butt off to improve as a ballplayer...

Thanks for the input Ramp, your insight is always invaluable.
