No, he sucks at defense.
His SSSR rating is -73.
NHL: Red Wings
CFB(Div I): Michigan
CFB(Div II): Hillsdale
whatever. that play was pretty ridiculous.
Is he a gold glove 3B? Absolutely not.
Is he in the bottom 3rd of fielding for 3B? Absolutely, But thats something you put up with for a guy that can hit the way he does. I don't understand the *****ing about his defense. its something you live with. It allowed the Tigers to get Prince Fielder.
I personally have more of an opinion of Fielder at 1B than Cabrera at 3B...just my opinion though.

Also have to take in to account how good Cabrera looks this season in terms of weight. The guy clearly lost at least 15-20 lbs of fat and is noticeably thinner that what I remember last season.
Fielder on the other hand....
Nice. Hopefully he can continue to drop weight and improve his range.
