They play the same position, are the same age (basically) and have similar stats. I think the 10 extra steals Wright gives will balance out the 5-10 extra HR's Cabrera might provide.

I just struggle to truly separate these 2 guys in any meaningful way.


Umm maybe because MCab is younger and better than Wright? :-D


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. ;-D



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.

My guess is that they will fall somewhere in the 3rd and beyond in most leagues. I am not that high on either tho but that's just me.
