Guru, who would you take ahead of Cabrera?
Hes on pace for .335 110 runs 35 hr 115 rbi
this is as a 22 year old and 3b + OF elgible next year...hes only getting better. I find it hard to believe that if you had the 5th pick youd pass on Cabrera, unless you have some sort of grudge against him.
A-Rod, Pujols, Vlad are clear top-3. Then, it gets a little iffy. Abreu, Soriano, Tejada, Cabrera, Teixeira, Ramirez, Ortiz, Santana, Pedro, perhaps Beltran for people who believe in him are all up there. Personally, I'd want Soriano and Abreu, due to the lethal power/speed combo. I don't buy the fact that people are telling me Soriano can't hit outside Arlington, because he did damn well in NYY. So, I have Cabrera as #6 with 3B eligibility. That's just my opinion, though.
And I'm assuming this in a roto format, where SBs are especially coveted.
