No Cabera again.  Good thing they keep his unavailability on the active roster so that he can chase those DNP milestones.

Right.  And yet...who is at Toledo that I would like to see called up?  I can't think of anyone.

A healthy able bodied baseball player?  Cabrera is absolutely worthless right now.  Heck, Daz Cameron is a more effective baseball player right now simply because he can do baseball things like play defense or pinch run.  Cabrera sits in the dugout with a bad knee.  Where is the value with that?

None at all.  But I've seen Daz Cameron before.  Whether or not he's on the team won't change anything.

You have no GM, so no-one is going to pull the trigger on that decision. Whatever your opinions on AJ Hinch for good or ill, he's a 'players coach' plus I think it's clear he is not the kind of guy who has a lot of strong opinions he will go to the wall for, or even rock the boat hard. So a decision like that seems unlikely to come from him either.

It's hard to see what the end game is. He is not accomplishing anything, nor is he helping his team, nor is he taking any final bows. That last one seems to make it plain he plans to come to ST next season - why not just call it a year and take the last month off and get an early start on whatever rehab might be possible?

Absolutely.

Hey, its great if Hinch is willing to go to bat for his players.  But this team isn't the Miguel Caberas.  Its the Detroit Tigers.  If he isn't capable of doing anything at all to help the team in the foreseeable future, and if Hinch is indeed the genie behind the curtain that we were force fed last season when everything was wonderful, then what are they doing by continuing on with a completely useless body on the active roster?  Is it possible Hinch really is the wet noodle that the trash can issue suggest he is and Cabrera is forcing the issue to remain off of the IL?

It would take some bravery to confront the Miggy thing, but yeah, having Miggy chew up an spot on the 26 man roster is just insane at this point.

Not that anyone says that the offensive performance in the macro is acceptable, but the old line about how "Miguel is still the best hitter in the lineup" needs to be retired at this point.

Even in terms of the DH position, with as bad as the roster is, the ideal thing would be to platoon Carpenter/Haase. But obviously, the contract complicates things greatly

They have got to pay him a bonus to retire and be an Ambassador or whatever.
