Everth Cabrera is the current Padres shortstop, stolen from the Rockies organization via the rule 5 draft in 2009. Although he hadn't previously played above class A level ball, he had an impressive 2009 rookie campaign, stealing 25 bases and scoring 59 runs in 103 games.

On August 7, 2009, he hit a game-winning walk-off grand slam against the Mets.

He was honored as Nicaragua's Professional Sports Athlete of the Year in 2009.

He also causes jodes0405 to consistently wet her pants.

He was occasionally erroneously referred to as Efren by Dick Enberg early in the 2010 season, sparking a minor inside-joke fest. Enberg also coined the nickname Mt. Everth, possibly as an attempt to convince people that he actually knows Everth's first name.

The Padres had a falling out with Everth that began perhaps as early in 2012. That was when he was arrested for domestic violence.[1] The club did not rush to judgement in that case and the chargers were dropped, but in hindsight it became part of a pattern. The next unfortunate incident involving Cabrera happened in 2013, when he was suspended by Major League Baseball for 50 games due to PED violation.[2] The violation came from a connection to Biogenesis who was distributed performance-enhancing drugs to players. Everth apologized for his part in the scandal that caught a number of other players as well.[3] Many were inclined to take his apology at face value and he was welcomed back to the team in 2014. But, during that season there was a straw that broke the camel's back. He was arrested for DUI in September and later charged with resisting arrest.[4][5] He was not tendered a contract following the 2014 season.[6]
