He's been much better than expected in the 1 hole. I think that is cause for great celebration. His spunk and veteranness are a key factor to what they've done as a team so far this year.
His poor career showing in bases on balls is a big concern over the long haul to sustain success. Perhaps both of their successes have been affected by having much better hitters hitting behind them, who knows.
Just a reminder he's OpSing 30 points lower than Stubbs for the year.....with below average defense.
Yet, Stubbs should be waived, and Cabrera team MVP.
