- I just did a lot of work on it; I hope this helps. The personal life section still needs more information, but I fixed a lot of grammar and put all of the baseball "Facts" into the writeups on each season. --Idont Havaname (Talk) 03:24, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Anyone else think that quote seems a little out of place in the intro paragraph? It's his former manager from his former team; maybe it should go somewhere in the Marlins section. Thoughts? --TrafficHaze (talk) 02:35, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
A minor point
"he had a blood alcohol level of .26, three times the legal limit". As far as I know, there is no legal limit inside of one's one home. Is this three times the limit for DUI, public intoxication, or something else? And if that's the case, should we modify it to say so, or is this ambiguity acceptable in the service of conciseness?

This page is incredibly editorialized and poorly written
Cabrera is putting up statistics comparable to Hank Aaron and Ken Griffey, Jr. at age 28, and is considered one of the best hitters in baseball today. He is a very intimidating hitter, as he consistently hits the best pitchers in baseball. Dan Haren is quoted as saying, "You're going to make good pitches, and he's going to hit them."
Needs to be rephrased, and probably doesn't go in the lead section of the page.
"Miguel began to rise through the Marlins' farm system teaming with future major leaguers Adrian Gonzalez and Dontrelle Willis. He began his professional career as a six-foot-two-inch 185 pound shortstop in the Gulf Coast League. Although he had below average speed, he had a rocket arm, above average plate discipline, and a thorough knowledge of the game. After batting .260 with 10 doubles, 2 triples and 2 home runs through 57 games, Cabrera was promoted to Class-A ball where he finished the final 8 games batting .250 with 6 RBIs."
...How do you define these things - rocket arm? Above average plate discipline? Unless you provide evidence to that effect, these are just unfounded statements that don't really belong here.
" There he teamed up with Dontrelle Willis, the left-handed fireballer with whom he would later join in the majors. In his fourth professional season, Miguel was shredding up the competition."
This page just doesn't read like it belongs in an encyclopedia. It's a lack of professionalism and a lot of editorializing.
