I just struggle to truly separate these 2 guys in any meaningful way.
Umm maybe because MCab is younger and better than Wright?
He's only 4 or 5 months younger...absolutely not a meaningful difference.
That being said, I understand where everyone is coming from on this...and really, the difference between the 2nd pick and the 10th is really irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I guess part of my problem is a bias I have towards Wright as a player in general, over Cabrera...not really a fantasy issue at all.
Well isn't it better to have no bias towards/against anyone and just go with numbers?
I love Wright as I have him in my keeper league. However, Miggy is a far better hitter than Wright as he has proven in his entire professional career. I just go by numbers.
But isn't having him 2nd overall a bit extreme? I mean, ahead of Ryan Howard, Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Alfonso Soriano, Johan Santana, David Ortiz, AND Alex Rodriguez seems a little bit ridiculous to me. I mean, I could understand someone taking Miguel Cabrera ahead of some of these players, but ALL of them??
Well, Miggy has yet to disappoint. While his HR numbers are down, it was a significant step forward for him this year. If he takes another step forward next season (which there is very little reason why he shouldn't), then he would be worth a 2nd pick overall.
I can't argule with people wanting to take other players over him which is fine by me.
