As for the Reds treating him cruelly I bet if you asked Paul he never wants to see Louisville again. He's almost 28, he's proven everything he can down there
and frankly it wan't all that impressive.
Janish's career numbers are almost the same as Cabrera's numbers this year. When you factor in that Janish has improved since his rookie year in 2008, I think there is plenty of evidence to suggest that Janish will do better offensively than Cabrera has done so far this season.
But that is faint praise, and I think it's more than likely that going forward, Cabrera will out hit Janish. Although I doubt he will out hit him enough to justify his defense.
