Is MCab's value sinking like the Marlins?

A Florida fire sale would not leave much for Cabrera to work with. This is worriesome.

He's still a stud. RBI and R might drop some.

This will put added pressure on Miggy. He was awesome before Delgado so I don't think he will be that much worse off. This does increase the value of young players especially Hermida who figures to be near the top of the lineup.

Good point on Hermida. It should improve his value but it's also going to increase the pressure on him. I think that MCabs value only drops slightly with a little less protection. He's still going to be a stud.

I'm dropping him some in my rankings, he's not a guy that can anchor your hitting stats like many other first rounders. The only thing that seperates him from many of the second rounders is his average. I could easily see Sheffield and Bay being more productive fantasy options and you can probably take them early in the second round instead of mid 1st- where MCab has been projected. I would much rather take Soriano in the first round or maybe even Santana then pair them with Sheffield type in the second.

Ummm ok? Look at Miggy's numbers prior to Delgado signing. He was 20 and put up .290, 30 HR in a pitcher's park. Until I see him put a bad season together, I expect him to continue to get better.

I wasn't bashing the guy at all, hes definitely one of the best young hitters in the game. All I am saying is that he won't get enough runs and rbi's to compare him to other top tier fantasy talent such as Ortiz and Manny- where he has been projected in next years draft. He has hit 33 hr's in each of the past 2 seasons, and I don't see that going up significantly unless he gets traded which won't happen. Will his higher average make up the HR and RBI differential? He just gets bumped down a few notches in my rankings, just towards the end of the first round instead of the middle. Is it possible that second rounders like Sheff and Bay are more productive fantasy options after the 06 season?- Yes.

His work ethic has also been questioned by the organization and I also wonder how he will respond to this fire sale/rebuilding. Just some things to think about, I don't want to change the subject or start an argument.
