Cabrera needs to be sent down

Between the control issues and the flat out mental mistake of not turning around to watch Beltre TAKE home plate on him, something has to be done. Kill me if you like, say "this is only his 2nd start this year", or whatever you want. It isn't like this is his first year with the Birds.

Send him down, put him in the pen, whatever. But this simply has to end. He is not going to even be an average pitcher in the majors I fear. He is simply not a starter.

DCab is out of options and cannot be sent down. Let's see how he finishes his day - he is not pitching that badly from what I can see on the boxscore.

Well I am watching him pitch and he is wild.

He just threw a wild pitch that was about 2 feet away from the plate.

Well, a lot of balls, people are booing him for falling behind in the count and a totally unacceptable merntal blunder that cost him a run. He is definitely drawing the crowd's ire.

Bullpen or bye-bye.

Something needs to happen.

Who are you going to force out of the bullpen? Albers and Cabrera could switch places...but would you want Cabrera pitching several times a week?

If you're actually watching the game, he's throwing pretty well today. He's gonna be what he's gonna be, a back of the rotation starter. ERA around 5. If you want or are expecting more than that, you're gonna be disappointed.

The mental mistake was unfortunate, but it was a strange play and its one of those situations that happens from time to time when a player tries to buy a call and forgets the situation with the runners. Think of Chuck Knoblauch in the playoffs a while back.

Wouldn't be opposed to Albers getting a shot in the rotation though, be it in place of either Burres or Cabrera (or Trachsel).
