Cabrera for Tanaka: That’s Just Sad

July 24, 2015

Jose Oquendo gives: Miguel Cabrera

Why Not Me gives: Masahiro Tanaka

Jose got Tanaka but both these teams said sayonara to playoff hopes a few weeks back. If WNM had an outside shot, he just stabbed himself in the stomach by trading a presently semi-productive player for a future that will arrive too late.

Let’s look at that semi-productive player:

Masahiro Tanaka, 2015: 74 IP, 3.65 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 4.93 K/BB, 12 HRA

The WHIP and K/BB are great, but the other stats suggest Tanaka is throwing a shit ton of get-me-over material. The ERA is merely average and there’s an acute case of gopheritis.

Oh and not that it really matters, but his elbow is being held together with sushi-wrapper seaweed.

I can only wonder what Josephina Oquendo thinks of her husband’s deal. I know she’d think even less of it if she knew the master plan was to draft Cabrera precisely to extort WNM to overpay.

The whole thing’s pathetic.
