Orlando Cabrera is an Ayn Rand Fan

There are plenty of characters on the Tribe with plenty of quirks, but this might just be our favorite tidbit of the season so far (via The PD):

The Tribe's Orlando Cabrera prepared for his second-ever start at third base Wednesday night by reading "Atlas Shrugged," by Ayn Rand.

"This is my bible," Cabrera said. "It's over 1,000 pages long."

Cabrera's copy of Rand's 1957 novel is worn. The spine of the book is taped over to help hold it together. Cabrera said he reads it every year.

We're unsure whether this makes us like Orlando Cabrera more or less. No word on the "bibles" of other players, though we're guessing Travis Hafner's copy of Mick Foley's autobiography is equally worn.
