Utley versus Miggy Cabrera remember that?

Postby The Cow » Sun Aug 10, 2008 2:23 pm

Remember that debate? Miggy was supposedly the better choice based on pure numbers. Utley was supposedly just a position scarcity reach? Utley clearly was the better choice based on pure numbers and position scarcity, hmm. Where is Miggy's cafe following now?

Miggy has been perhaps the hottest hitter in baseball since the All-Star break. Poorly timed thread.

And i like Miggy more for the rest of this year and then all of next. I think people underestimated the effect of him changing leagues and expected him to be the American league MVP. Next year I see something like .325, 35, 130, 5

So despite Utley having the better numbers once again, at least 2 years running if you are keeping track at home, Miggy was somehow still the better fantasy pick this year? Wow! The length you guys go to, to attempt to prove your point. I will say this eventually, eventually you will be right. Miggy is bound to have a better year than Utley eventually. I think.

yeah if you've checked their performance as of late, you'll see that miggy has outplayed utley. right now, it's what have you done for me lately. i'll take miggy rest of the year over utley.

if you're just pointing out the fact who was a better pick in march, yeah it looks like utley right now but if i'm trading for one of them, it's obviously miggy.

Completely agree. Their splits since the All-Star break aren't close. Miggy - 7 HR, 32 RBI & .348 AVG...Utley - 3 HR, 9 RBI & .263 AVG.

This is certainly a poorly timed thread.

According to Baseball Monster Miggy has be more valuable 1 of the last 2 years in your basic 5x5 league, of course Utley was injured that year, but the previous year Utley was only 4 spots better. I don't see how you can paint it as if Utley is dominating Miggy, his value at the end of the year this year will be better because of Miggy's slow start, but this race is still tight in a #'s standpoint, the fact that Miggy has been moved to the more power filled 1B continues to help the Utley scarcity aspect, but from pure #'s these guys can be a toss up, with Miggy having the potential to develop more power.

What is your problem? Why did you start a thread taunting people that supported Cabrera and then try to rile everyone up by being a sarcastic? This thread adds nothing to anyones baseball knowledge and was only created so you could start something.....well done.

Still here.
Ranked 10th in Yahoo over the past month.
What's the point of this thread again?
Both are fine players and I'd take either on my team, but starting from scratch I'd still draft Miggy before Utley.

I'll second that. I don't believe M-Cab's potential has been fully realized yet and it seems that whatever adjustments he's needed to make in hitting in the AL, he has seemed to have made them.
