M-Cab is a clear choice over Sizemore and Braun in my book given the extra year of 3B eligibility. If not for that, it's really close to call. Sizemore and Braun are a toss-up to me already.

After long consideration I"ve got them ranked Braun, Sizemore, Cabrera.

I like Cabrera's 1b/3b eligibility but there are a lot of guys that suit me just fine later that can fill those holes, late late guys, like Adam LaRoche or Conor Jackson, Adrian Beltre, Mark Reynolds, I can live with them if I have to.

Sizemore is the only one of the group who could possibly get you 30/40, but I'll take Braun's higher average and better RBI production first with a possibility of going for 15 to 20 stolen bases.

You really can't go wrong with either of these guys really so it just comes down to tastes, but I'll take the guy who can realistically give me 100 35 100 15 .300 before 125 30 80 35 .275 or 85 37 125 2 .310, I feel like Braun is the best bet to give me solid production in all 5 categories.

i have to say that in a lot of the drafts (mock included) that I've been a part of, I have seen J. Reyes fall to 7 or even 8 quite a few times. That being said, ...

I'd go Cabrera, Braun, Sizemore.

Since SB is such a "stand alone" category, I tend not to draft players because of their SB bonuses. I'd prefer 5 more HR over 10 more SB.

It's M Cab, Sizemore, Braun for me but the last two are a toss-up. I recently picked at #7 and took Sizemore over Braun but it was a coinflip really.

For those of you wanting Miggy first, does his 3B elig outweigh the deficiency in SB, runs and potentially standard avg?

And whoever mentioned "Since SB is such a "stand alone" category, I tend not to draft players because of their SB bonuses. I'd prefer 5 more HR over 10 more SB."

There's about a 35-40 SB deficiency in Sizemore, 12-15 in Braun, and he's even with Braun on HR. So really, I view Miggy like this...
=HR with Braun
+20-25 RBI over Braun
-3-10 R under Braun
-12-15 SB under Braun
=AVG with Braun

+5 HR over Sizemore
+35-45 RBI over Sizemore
-15-20 R under Sizemore
-35-40 SB under Sizemore
+.030-.045 AVG over Sizemore

I can see the arguments on all sides like that I guess.

I'm taking Cabrera first. Looking at last year's stats is not sufficient in making a decision like this. It completely disregards Cabrera's transition period to the AL. He hit about 20 points below his career average and had a career-worst walk rate. His second half turnaround is much more indicative of his potential in Detroit, especially given all the injuries that ravaged the team last year. I think he should be the favorite for AL MVP going into 2009 and will reward your fantasy team as such.

I'm in the minority but I'll take Braun right now. His power/speed potential is ridiculous.
