Miguel Cabrera shortstop? What are you smoking?

Maybe in the Mets series. Trust me, I'm not an Alex Gonzalez fan. But Miguel outgrew short a ways back. It would be like learning a new position for him and we don't need the goofups he had in left when he was learning the position at short which is one of the most important defensive positions on the field. Throw into this the simple little fact that it would be the playoffs. Maybe next season.

I disagree. I think he could still play SS but I don't have anything to base it on. I just don't buy the whole "he outgrew the position" bull. When is Arod gonna outgrow it?

 

Arod - 6'3 210lbs.

Cabs - 6'2 185lbs.

Gonzalez is way too good, defensively, to even consider this (IMO).

Welcome

 

And by outgrew I don't mean physically, I mean baseball wise. He's been stuck in two different positions for 4 years now and trust me shortstop is not the easiest position in the world to learn.

Juan Pierre

Luis Castillo

Pudge

Mike Lowell

Derrek Lee

Miguel Cabrera

Juan Encarnacion

Alex Gonzalez

Pitcher

 

 

Conine seems to be only Hitting the Phillies... But you could switch Cabs and Conine every Game... Also you can sometimes switch LC and JP's spots in the lineup (the fish did this i think in one of there last 3 games)

who gives a F**** bout his D ?

SS is hardly one of the positions where a player with defensive deficiencies can be "hidden" in a lineup.

 

In games of the magnitude of the playoffs I don't want some guy making a mistake because he wasn't 110% comfortable, or he wasn't 110% certain of what his responsibilities were on that particular play.

 

I say, Gonzo is the playoff SS without question.

Miggy at SS? I like the idea of maybe having Cabs play SS next year and have A-Gon as a late inning defensive replacement, but I think that Cabs should have a whole Spring Training to adjust. There is no way I want to just jump in to the playoffs against posibly the best team in baseball experimenting!

 

My Playoff Lineup:

1) Juan Pierre--CF

2) Luis Castillo--2nd

3) Ivan Rodriguez--C

4) Mike Lowell--3rd

5) Juan Encarnacion--RF

6) Derrek Lee--1st

7) Miguel Cabrera/Jeff Conine--LF

8) Alex Gonzalez--SS

 

Rotation:

1) Josh Beckett

2) Mark Redman

3) Brad Penny

4) Dontrelle Willis

 

Bullpen:

Closer--Ugueth Urbina

Set-Up--Chad Fox

Long Reliever--Carl Pavano

Other Relievers--Braden Looper, Nate Bump, Mike Tejera
