Asdrubal Cabrera – I know that Cabrera was an All-Star in 2011 and 2012, and that most teams would be really happy to have a guy like Asdrubal manning shortstop.
But I still can’t wait to get rid of the dude.
First off, he is just effing terrible this season. He is hitting .234 with a .672 OPS. He is not hitting for power–10 HR–and is hitting .187 with a .499 OPS when guys are in scoring position. Even better? Hits way worse at home (.605 OPS) then away (.743).
Second, he is a tough autograph to get. He is easily the toughest dude on the team to get in-person, and has zero decent certified autographs.
And its not like I can wait until he does a private signing: the one that he did (that I sent items to) was terrible–he was not very friendly, and didn’t even sign all the items. The guy who put it on said he would never work with him again.
I would really rather trade him away this offseason, and just plop Mike Aviles in there until Lindor is ready to go.
Omar Vizquel – That is what I want. Unretire Omar and his bongo drums, and throw him out there.
I was able to get both of these autographs for $20. Considering both are certified, I was pretty happy with the deal.
