Cabrera would prefer to play short/ANDREW J. KRAMER


When it was time to take the field, he jogged toward the familiar neighborhood. Of course he did. Where else would Asdrubal Cabrera go?

He is a shortstop. He feels at home there, nestled
between second and third the way he has often been. He likes the action. He likes the responsibility.  He likes the way the position fits him, the comfort he finds there. It feels like … baseball.

Yup, as soon as I heard that Cash wanted a shortstop that could make “all the routine plays” I guessed his choice would be Cabrera. I’d rather see him as a motivated, if range-challenged shortstop than as an adequate but bored 2nd baseman, too.
