• K-Long on Melky: He made himself tradeable

    In case youve been living under a rock, or just dont pay any attention to the National League West, Melky Cabrera is having himself a heck of a season with the San Francisco Giants. So far the former Yankee outfielder boasts a .363/.399/.532 batting line, which translates into a .401 wOBA, and his 101 hits lead all of Major League Baseball. Its a far cry from the Melky we knew in New York, and Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long says that thats no coincidence. Hes a hell of a player, Long told Joel Sherman of the New York Post. He has totally gotten committed to his career. He doesnt drink. He doesnt take anything for granted any more. His personal trainer is with him all the time. When you go all in and have talent, this is what happens and it is evident he has the talentIf Melky committed himself to the Yankees as he does now, he would still be a Yankee, he continued. And he would say the same thing. He made himself tradeable then.
