There are many high profiled signings that have never resulted in anything.
Milledge may be rated higher but he was definetly over matched after the first week or so. I'm not saying Cabrera is a superstar but he's WON games for the Yankees with his bat and DEFINETLY his defense. Cabrera was leading the league in outfield assists and he had only played a month. Who can forget that catch against Boston.
Milledge can bomb just as easily as you say other "high profile" players can bomb.
The difference is that Cabrera is doing it at the Major league level while Milledge is back in the minors needing more seasoning.
