I agree with you man. Cabrera is a stud. I believe he's a good player right now and will be a great player soon enough. I don't know if I'll compare him to HOFers right now, but he's working his way up the ladder. Right now I see this from him next season.....Yoda wrote:bronxxbomber wrote:The more and more I look at it. The more it seems like a push to me. I believe the protection argument and the pure talent arguments from all around. I'm also hearing the extra eligibility Cabrera brings to the table, but I don't get that because I'd play him exclusively at 3b because he's more valuable there I think. I think Randolf will continue to bring Wright along slowly. I really doubt that the Mets will bat Reyes and Lo Duca 1-2 for so long because neither is that good at getting on base. I feel that Wright is going to have to hit his way up the lineup. Cabrera on the other hand will get his numbers, but you have to be worried about his team dependent states. To ignore those around him isn't wise no matter how good he is. If Reyes walks a little more and Beltran plays better I think it'll be moot because Wright should get a lot more abs will players on base.
I really like Wright a lot. It really depends on how special you believe MCab is. Plenty of HOFers and superstars put up great numbers without much support. I seriously doubt MCab will become a mediocre player just because Carlos Delgado isn't hitting behind him. That's just ridiculous.

those are still stellar numbers in my opinion and he's worth whatever it takes to get him, especially in keeper leagues.
I guess I'm just a little more bias toward the sbs because regardless of what anyone says they are very important. 17 sbs out of 3b makes a big deal as we all know the reasons why. I also think Wright BA will increase now that he's got a 1.5 under his belt. I'm just waiting to see what lineup Willie starts out with this season.
