Podcast: Cabrera, Soria, franchise players

A good time was had by all on Tuesday’s Baseball Today podcast, certainly more fun than what Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera experienced Monday. Keith Law and I talked Cabrera and much more.

1. Should the Tigers have expected Cabrera to get injured playing third base? Our opinions differ slightly, but certainly Detroit dodged a bullet.

2. However, the Royals are likely to lose closer Joakim Soria for a while. The Royals have pitchers that seem capable of closing games, but which one?

3. In yet another long-term contract that seems to benefit both team and player, Derek Holland and the Rangers committed to one another. Is Holland on the verge of stardom?

4. We take your emails, as among the topics are top players to start a franchise with, White Sox catchers, Braves shortstops and more!

5. Is Triple-A baseball what is used to be, or do more prospects skip that level on the way to the big leagues? KLaw offers thoughts.
