Buried amongst the many bulleted items of this Sun-Times piece -- written by perhaps the best beat writer in Chicago right now, Staff Report (whattup, Staffy!) -- is an intriguing development in our desperate search for starting pitchers. To wit, young right-hander Alberto Cabrera (hey, he'll turn 24 tomorrow!) will be given a second chance as a starting pitcher next season ... in Iowa. In 21.2 innings of work for the mighty 2012 Cubs, ACab gave us both good (11.22 K/9, 3.83 FIP) and bad (7.48 BB/9, 5.40 ERA [4.59 xFIP]). Some will decry this move as weakening our bullpen. But I think if the FO, scouts and coaches think Cabrera can turn himself into a starting pitcher, it's an avenue this pitching-starved organization needs to cruise down.
