Midnight in the garden of good and Nady
Astros quash Pettitte rumors

How about some late-night breaking news? Courtesy of a few good commenters (and Mike) comes word that Daniel Cabrera, now a member of the Nationals, is finding new and creative ways of taking out the Yankees. Another Cabrera — Melky — became Daniel’s latest victim. In the fourth inning of a winter league game, Cabrera hit Cabrera, and Cabrera had to leave the game. No word on the severity of Melky’s potential injury.

      Cheering a player getting hurt?

    • Alan

      Classy.

    • The Evil Empire

      Take it easy guys, joke

  • Paulie

    I hope Melky isn’t hurt too bad.

  • TurnTwo

    good thing they start putting some of the scrubs into these winter league games early, or somone important couldve gotten hurt in a meaningless game.

  • Tom Zig

    Can someone do something about this guy? seriously, he is going to really hurt someone one day.

  • http://www.stilettosetsports.com Mike

    What type of player does that during a winter game of all things?

    • TurnTwo

      i would guess he didnt do it on purpose; he just doesnt have very good control.

      • D.B.H.O.F. p.k.a The Last Don

        He does not have great control that is a fact. He also does hit people on purpose especially when he is mad. He does also hit people because of his lack of control, and sometimes that lack of control leads him to get angry and / or frustrated and start hitting some of the better hitters especially. I told everybody we should have picked up Daniel, even if it was just to have a guy who would not hit our guys and hit other peoples lol.

    Cabrera has no idea where the ball is going. And he throws HARD. Great combo. I hope Melky’s fine.

    I was watching the game on ESPN Deportes (what can I say, I’m going through baseball withdrawl) and it was a nasty pitch. It was a 91 mph two seamer that didn’t move back over the plate at all. It hit Melky right above the elbow, and it looked like it hurt. Melky got pissed and slammed his helmet on the ground.

    If D. Cabrera ever put it all together, he would be a great pitcher, but until then, he’s just dangerous.

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    Melky actually has been playing really good. Between the combined regular season and playoffs his line is.
    41-123, .331/.405/.436/.841 with 16 rbi, 10 doubles, 24 runs, 1 hr, 14 bb, 15 k, 3 sb and 3 outfield assists.

    I think its too early to call it a career for Melky. If you want homegrown talent to win, you have to have patience. Not every player is Derek Jeter.

    Cabrera is just doing his part to ease the Yankees’ OF logjam.

    • D.B.H.O.F. p.k.a The Last Don

      Which Cabrera?

    Baltimore should have converted him to a closer ala Henke and Gossage.

    **Melky X-Ray are negative**
