He has absolutely no mobility defensively. He couldn't come in for a bunt to save his life and I don't think I'm wrong . That being the case, why don't the White Sox try to get on base by bunting down the third base line? Wouldn't a good manager try to exploit Cabreras weakness at third base? Any type of decent bunt isn't going to be fielded by him. Why not bunt a few times every time we play the Tigers?
Probably because we have bad players who don't know how to bunt.
