Cabrera had a rather miniscule .657 OPS to begin with. Now he's not even 100% by everyone's admission, and as of a day ago, was being contemplated replacing him on the roster. Throw in air-mailing routine throws to first, and it's just common sense that he should not be starting tonight. I just don't know how that can be argued.

I've yet to see anyone argue that Brutus. What's been argued is that Cabrera made a nice/fantastic/average play that saved a run.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
I'm so sick of hearing about post-season experience. Talent trumps experience.
Stop! Heisey time!
Did that one hit Utley?
Wow, I'm actually impressed with TBS. They actually called out all the mistakes the umpires made with Utley.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
