Rumor Mill: Asdrubal Cabrera

The latest rumor involving the Cardinals is that the club is said to be interested in Cleveland shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera as a potential replacement for aging and injured middle infielder Rafael Furcal. On it's face, it seems like this could be a good move because Cabrera has been one of the best offensive shortstops in baseball over the past few years. As recently as 2011 he hit 23 homers and drove in 93 runs while stealing 17 bases in 22 tries.
