The Torpedo Boat weighs in on the Cabrera trade

and he wants the 2nd base job:

"Yeah, [the Cabrera trade] was a shock, not a shock, but I heard the news and I was like, `Wait a second, they just signed me to a contract and then they made the trade,' `' Uribe said through translator/coach Omer Munoz. "But I talked to a lot of people and everything was fine after that.''

Make no mistake about it, however, Uribe wants the starting job at second.

"They don't have to worry about my attitude,'' Uribe said. "Whatever they need me to do. I've never had one problem anywhere I've been. I'm here to work hard and win that second base job. If not, whatever job they give me.''

"First of all, I have no control over who the starter is,’’ Uribe said. "I’m going to do everything I can in my power to be the starting second baseman. That’s what I like to do, I like to start and be a difference-maker.’’
Can Ozzie say no? [assuming Profundo isn't traded]
