[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Should Valentine be fired?? : I got to say this, and I hope women out there don't call me a sexist, but it takes two to tango. Even if Cabrera was a Casanova, how bout those Sox wives he did bang Orlando (and Dawn), don't they take some responsibility to just say "no" to the suitor and stay faithful to their husbands...ok, I've always wanted to defend Cabrera at least from the standpoint that he didn't order these women or rape these women--he may have been seduced if all we know. You'd think some women would be i don't know, a little smarter, and how bout a little more faithful....I always loved the way the wife in Major League seduced Vaughn because he saw her husband on TV with a floozie on the road, and then basically did a pay-back...That was awesome

I don't know or care if Cabrera slept with someone's wife. He probably did, and that guy - Foulke or not - probably cheated on her anyway. Such is life in MLB.
But c'mon. Defending Cabrera? First of all, his departure lead to drafting Ellsbury and Lowrie. Like Renteria or not, this move appeared to be to take advantage of a loophole in compensation, which, surpise, surpise, has been modified somewhat since.
As for Orlando, he certainly was a questionable human being, right down to his calling official scorers during games to gripe about error calls, which he absolutely did in Chicago. (And judging from scoring after the play, he might have beeen a little too intimiadting, as well.) Cabrera also floated from team to team at near-record pace, usually finishing the season in different laundry than when he started it. Was he offputting, or heavily sought after? I know he was all but asked to leave the White Sox, as even Guillen couldn't stand him...
