I meant to vote for Miggy, but hit Tex's button instead.

Moo moo

:-[

Maybe I can get Stl to wake his lazy arse up to come vote for Miggy and nullify my vote.

the vote is WAY too close given the overwhelming support for miggy in the posted responses. :-D

common, teix supporters! lets here why teix will be the better masher (well, aside from the fact that he's in a better park...)

I think for whom and where Cabrera and Tiexiera play will be the deciding factors. They both are going to be great.

I, as well, like M-Cab in this one. He's my favorite fantasy player and should put up better numbers than big Tex.

tex
switch hitter so can hit righties (meaning most pitchers) more easily than a righty hitter
plays in bandbox
extra hitter in 9th spot to drive in
waay more power

cabrera
shown higher average thus far (but this is one of the most erratic stats yr to yr)

verdict.
resoundingly, tex

Way more power? After looking at the splits, he might have less power. Look what leaving florida did to DLee.

Tex
home 26 hrs 1.093 ops .330 avg
away 11 hrs .770 ops .258 avg

Before this year, Tex ops was .095 better hitting RH.

Cabrera
home 10 hrs .860 ops .298 avg
away 20 hrs 1.071 ops .362 avg

If the parks were equal, i think Cabrera wins easily in everything. Right now Tex great park advantage, MCab great park disadvantage, makes it close.

What numbers are you looking at? Cabrera is already better than Teixeira and 3 years younger.

Not just because I disagree with you, but this may be the worst analysis of anything I've seen in a while.

Thanks!

Please don't tell me you think Lee's explosion was entirely the result of him moving to Wrigley.

Of course not. But few player's had Lee's negative park splits.

As a Marlin

59 home hrs (Dolphin Stadium)
103 road hrs

That's a 36/64% split before now. He's 20/21 this year. He's at a good age for a power spike, coupled with a nice park, has certaintly been 2 big reasons why.
