Asdrubal Cabrera

While watching the M's play Cleveland, don't forget a certain player named Asdrubal Cabrera. He would provide some much needed infield depth for the Mariners, who for some reason didn't think much of him.

Do you think Baker and the rest of the anti-youth realize Cabrera is a young hitter playing on a team fighting for a spot in the post season? Do they sit amazed a team like the Indians would dare play a youth when they could be playing a less talented veteran?

Take a look at the Yankees and their handling of Mussina. Take a look at the Tigers and notice their handling of multiple rookies this year.

Then take a look at the Mariners. The exception is clearly the way the Mariners handle youth, not the other way around as some would have you believe.
