Only his power stats were better.

Cabrera: .292, 37HR, 127 RBI, 85 runs, 180 Hits, 36 doubles, 2 triples, .349OBP, 56BB, 1SB, 126K, .537 SLG

Pedroia: .326, 17HR, 83 RBI, 118 runs, 213 Hits, 54 doubles, 2 triples, .376OBP, 50BB, 20SB, 52K, .459 SLG

So to say Cabrera's stats are better means you only look at HR and RBI, which is a very narrow way of assessing a player's value.



Pedroia led the league in hits, runs and doubles. If you think Cabrera deserved it more, you're about as short sighted as Evan Grant who left him off the ballot completely, and made up a bumbling excuse, I think he was just still pissed that Pedroia started the All Star game over Kinsler.

Positional scarcity and defense count for a lot. Cabrera's OPS was 17 points higher than Pedroia's, his OBP was way worse and he played crummy defense at an easier position.

Pedroia isn't exactly a mind-blowing candidate for MVP, but the only other players who deserved consideration were Joe Mauer, Grady Sizemore and Kevin Youkilis.

So, Chase Utley, as much as he denied it all year, WAS injured from the end of May till the end of the season.

He was putting MVP-like numbers up for the first two months, and then suddenly evened out to a .290 average.

Out four to six months due to hip surgery, possibility of returning for the season opener.

I knew he was tough, but not that tough.

I see that Aaron Heilman has issued a "start me or trade me" ultimatum to the Mets. I am pretty sure they will be happy to comply with one of these requests.

I've missed baseball.

Bye bye Javy Vazquez! I am not shedding any tears over Boob Logan's departure either.

The Sock didn't really get anything to be excited about in return though. meh.

Yeah, I'm not sad about losing Javy. He choked it up down the stretch last year, couldn't seem to get it done in the big games. I think this was more of a salary dump than anything. We get rid of his $12 million a year. Kenny Williams is one of the best GMs in baseball and I know he's got something up his sleeve. More trades? A couple of free agent signings? I can't wait to find out.

And I guess the best piece we got from the Braves was this Tyler Flowers kid. A catcher who just tore it up at the plate in the Arizona Fall League. We obviously already have a God-like everyday catcher but it's never a bad thing to add depth to your farm system.
