Quote of the Day: 'I suck. For real. I'm getting old.'

Jul 30, 2009, 1:33 PM EDT

Orlando Cabrera, after making two defensive mistakes yesterday:

I suck. I don’t even know how to describe it. I suck. For real. I’m
getting old, maybe. Maybe a day off is what I need. I’ll take it if
there’s a spot they want me to do that.

Normally I’d say that Cabrera is being overly hard on himself, but
that’s a tough argument to make for someone who’s hitting
.234/.285/.295 with 11 errors and an Ultimate Zone Rating of -5.2 runs
in 65 games.

And yes, maybe he is just getting old. Not many shortstops have
remained Gold Glove-caliber defenders in their mid-30s and he’ll be 35
years old in November. Luckily he has hugs from Jason Giambi to lighten
his mood.
