They're both corner outfielders. Defense at that position isn't as important, and Cabrera is no slouch. The guy was a CF, so his defense at a corner spot should be pretty good.

It's not just a little more for Hunter. 5 million/year is a substantial amount. Depending on what you think of Cabrera post-PEDs, I guess you could have an argument. I just believe that it didn't give him that large of a boost. He's around that age where players just start to put things together.
