The reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner wasn’t demonstrative and only said a few words. So what could he have said to provoke an ejection?
Cabrera appeared to call Fairchild a “homo.”
After the game, Fairchild wouldn’t divulge what Cabrera uttered but said that it will be in his report about the ejection.
On June 29, Cabrera also appeared to call Rays closer Fernando Rodney a “maricón,” the Spanish equivalent of “faggot.”
Is Cabrera homophobic? Is that a sufficient reason to remove a player? We’d like to hear from you.
