Why don't you ask Manny Ramirez how good Cabrera is. Believe me, he may be on the team because of injury, but he's played better defensively than any Yankee outfielder has this season so far with the exception of Johnny Damon.

You obviously don't watch the Yankees enough, or have a terrible bias against them.

Milledge might be the more complete player one day, but as of right now, he's right. Cabrera is that step ahead of Milledge right now. He would have been sent down, and a trade for Abreu or Burrell would have happened if he wasn't MLB caliber at this point.
