I just saw on the bottom line of MLBN that we signed him to a minor league contract. I like it as a absolutely no risk but high reward signing if true.

Sounds good to me. High reward..low risk

Always had a great arm (though another guy who has no clue about holding runners), and I know KW likes that arm.

Problem is, he has a head of popcorn, and he is very, very immature.

Not to mention that game against BOS he was in when he balked in a runner from 3B, then threw at Dustin Pedroia and started a bench brawl because he didn't know how to hold a runner on.

Unfortunately I don't think this guy will ever get it.

When I posted that the Sox had interest in him years back I got ripped on but I am happy we got insurance though.

Well, Kenny always does get his guy.

We didn't get insurance, the Knights did.

Daniel Cabrera sucks.

Low risk
Mediocre reward

When you get removed from the rotation after 40 days, and removed from the roster permanently shortly thereafter, you suck.

When you did it as a member of WAS, you need to look for a new line of work.

Why does it matter where he flamed out? If with the Nationals or someone else--it doesnt matter if he has a foundational problem w/ his approach to pitching.

Matt Thornton was 28 his last year with Seattle.

I won't bank on anything, but if Coop can make Cabrera one of his greatest reclamation projects, that would be pretty sweet.

Coop isn't fixing anything unless Cabrera can magically find that 7 MPH he lost on his fastball.

Maybe Coop stole it and now he's going to return it.

That's almost not even an exaggeration at all.

That's a drastic drop in velocity the last few years.

I believe he has recently started to throw a sinker which is obviously going to have a little less velocity on it then a normal 4 seamer. Also you have to notice that he threw significantly more chageups last year(8% up from 3%). This would factor into some of that loss of velocity. Not trying to make excuses for the guy though, i have no hopes for him at all really.

Nice signing on the margins.

Odds that anything comes of it? Probably less than 10%

Still...worth it.
