    No wonder I hadn't heard of them. Guess I'll have to head west.

    Not sure if we are still on Asdrubal or cheeseburgers or if we've necessarily drawn a clear distinction between the two, but what is the best burger you've ever had? It's been a long time since I had a really good one. Had a one pound burger at Fuddruckers once.

    Homemade, hand-pattied, grilled, with mustard, pickle, onion, and slaw.

    Has there ever been a late season acquisition for any team that never got a hit for that team that season?

    He might have missed a lot of pitches but i doubt if he missed many team meals(if there is such a thing).

    Reds pick up Asdrubal Cabrera on waivers

    Did they even scout him? He looks terrible out there. Not just the results. Heís all arms. Slow bat speed. Heís cooked. His numbers this year be lefties werenít terrible, but something changed with him during the season bc he ainít going to hit anyone.

    I turned the game off right after he batted. There's no logical excuse for him coming up to bat, or even being on the team for that matter.

    yes, it was the same scout who advocated signing moose to a $64M contract.

    If I counted correctly, Asdrubal Cabrera has appeared in 34 innings for the Reds, or just under 5 full games. In that time, Baseball Reference has him worth -0.6 WAR. If Cabrera was an every-day player over a whole year and produced at this rate, he'd be worth something like -19.5 BRefWAR.

    His entire cruel stay here as an esteemed member of the 2021 Reds should end with an “The Aristocrats!” from Krall after the season mercifully closes next week.

    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    Cabrera absolutely stinks, but, he’s not to blame for the late season choke job. That blame rests soley on the middle of the lineup. Castellanos and Votto absolutely choked last night with the bases loaded against a bad pitcher.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Tis true. The guys w/ a .940 and .924 OPS respectively who carried this team for months failed last night so they are the same as Cabrera who has a .087 OPS since being added to this team.

    Was a disappointing result and felt season ending when it happened, but you canít define players in baseball by single at bats.

    The primary reason they have the opportunity is because of their production this year.
