Sounded odd to me, too. MLB lists him at 210. Yahoo has him at 210, too.


I take Cabrera. Best bat outside of Pujols. Look at the team around him, I would be slightly pissed and immature at times too.

ESPN also has him listed at 210. Although they also have Big Papi listed at 230. :-D

i know cabrera is a great hitter, but his defense is sub par and he doesn't seem to play hard all the time. it's between wright and sizemore for me

That's interesting perspective. I asked this question on a different forum and Mauer was by and far the most popular choice, and I regard their opinions on the same level as I do here at the Cafe, for general baseball. The argument can be made that Mauer is the most unique of the three; a Catcher of his ability and potential can be a once in a generation thing, while we have two of the four players listed playing 3B and an OF, of which, studs are more fairly common. So, under the presumption that Mauer remains a C for the long haul, and given both his offensive and defensive capabilities, there's certainly nothing to scoff at in picking him, or any of the other 3 blokes here. Hope you like crow.
