And In The Potentially Dumb Trade Of The Year Award…

Cleveland Indians infielder Orlando Cabrera has been traded to the Giants for top prospect Thomas Neal, who is currently an outfielder in AAA Fresno.

No, we don’t know what to make of it either, but here it is.

So long, TDaddy, we hardly knew ye.

  1. This is so horribly bad.

    Comparing some numbers (courtesy our stats-cave friends at Bay City Ball):

    Tejada Cabrera
    fWAR -0.1 -0.6
    wRC+ 59 66
    BB% 3.7 3.8
    K% 9.6 11.6
    UZR 1.5 -7.2

    There is no way that this trade improves the Giants at all. I do not look forward to seeing how Bochy uses him in the line-up.

    • Oy vey. This is terrible and makes the trade even worse. I knew the numbers were bad (I compared the ISO/BABIP/wOBA/wRC+), but wow. This is horrible.
