I honestly think Cabrera will improve. But I also think Janish is MORE than capable of hitting WELL above Cabrera's current line. I just think it's in the best interest of the club to rest Orlando MUCH more often than they are now and to play Janish MUCH more often than they are now as well. He needs some reps too. If we're not going to play Paul, send him to AAA where he'll get some playing time to prove whether he deserves a legitimate shot or not. Languishing on the bench to the extent that he has thus far is almost cruel and unusual punishment. Especially for someone who was penciled in to be the starter during the off season.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
