Orlando Cabrera definately deserved to be on the All Star Team with the way he has played this season. Cabrera has played in 83 games this season and he is 111 for 337 (.329 avg, .814 OPS) with 55 runs scored, 5 homers, 48 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. Cabrera has also played great defense like he always does. Cabrera was unlucky for two reasons 1.) Jim Leyland selected his own shortstop (Carlos Guillen) as Derek Jeter’s backup and 2.) The Rangers had to have someone make the team so Michael Young was chosen despite the fact that Cabrera has outplayed him this season so far. Basically, Orlando Cabrera got stiffed.
