Is Texeria and Cabrera really that much of a toss-up?

Their stats from last year would seem to suggest as such.

Can't really go wrong with either imo. As to who will be more valuable, who knows really. Comes down to personal preference really as I do not htink there is a lot of difference in projected value between the 2. Tex has a bit more power...MCab will get you a better avg in all liklihood, but that is about the extent of it.

I'd call Cabrera the safer pick. He was very consistant last year. Teix had one big month that really inflated his stats, of course he was also hurt for a bit which deflated his stats some as well. I just feel safer with Cabrera. He's also in a position thats not as deep in my opinion.

Yeah I dunno who I would take if given the chance. Probably Cabrera.

Cabrera will give you early 1st round talent as a late 2nd round pick. This will be the year he takes it to a whole new level. M-Cab easy.

Cabrera by a nose. He seems to go off the board 5-10 picks ahead of Tex in most drafts.

I like MCab a little better as well...both should give you very solid numbers across the board..but MCabs average will be slightly higher... :-)

I agree that you can't go wrong with either one. Cabrera is definite 2nd round material IMO and Tex is more borderline 2nd/3rd. I'd be happy with either but it's not that close for me. I'm taking Cabrera if he's there.

Both are close, but i like Tex more this year. He's a switch hitter, has the park advantage, and had the better 2nd half.
