This was Milledge's first call up, and while there where cerntainly gorwing pains, there where also several flashes of briliance and there's little doubt that he'll stick soon.

Cabrera is better than Milledge in the same way that Dom Moore is better than Brandon Dubinsky. He's a nice defensive player whose had more time to mature at the major league level, but no one in they're right mind would take Moore over Dubinsky or Cabrera over Milledge.

Ever since that "catch", Yankee fans have been overrating Cabrera non-stop.

It's boderline ridiculous.
