Shamrock Posted September 13, 2004 Share Posted September 13, 2004 Full article Yes, that really was Cabrera pantomiming Moises Alou's famous blowup at Steve Bartman in the second inning Sunday afternoon. That really was the Marlins' left fielder performing a goofy half-leap into the first row of the seats along the line, then expressing mock frustration at an imaginary interference. The fact Alou was the hitter only made the moment more amusing. That and the sight of the ball landing about 30 rows foul at sold-out Wrigley Field. "Sometimes," a sheepish Cabrera said after an 11-1 Marlins win, "you need to have fun." Cubs starter Glendon Rusch plunked Cabrera with a first-pitch fastball on the left shoulder two innings later, but everyone involved denied it was intentional. Maybe not, but it sure was suspicious. Home-plate umpire Bill Hohn was concerned enough to move toward Cabrera in an apparent effort to head off trouble. Cabrera, still in a playful mood despite the new bruise, made a quick feint toward Hohn and laughed all the way to first base. HAHA! I love this guy!
