Cabrera lost about 30 pounds...HR's might go down?

That's alot of weight loss. That might actually affect his HR numbers. Andruw Jones lost alot of weight last season and finished the season with only 22 HR's. IDK what you guys think...???

He was actually getting too fat so the weight loss is probably good news. I doubt it will effect his power.

Yeah, yeah, I think his HR's plummet HUGE. I'm going to print this post and take it to my draft tomorrow night . . . . . and hope he drops to ME.

I agree with the JC, it'll only help him!

I still believe Cabrera will hit 35-45 HRs in that lethal Detroit lineup.

Anybody downgrading Miggy for actually being in shape is making a mistake. He needed to lose weight. He's got enuf pop to hit homers and then some. This will just make him faster on the base paths, a few more steals, a few singles turned into doubles. Plus keep in mind, they can't pitch around him anymore like they could in Florida. I see a monster year.

Cabrera was chubby last year. Losing wait was good. Only way it is bad is all he loss was muscle...
