=HR with Braun
+20-25 RBI over Braun
-3-10 R under Braun
-12-15 SB under Braun
=AVG with Braun


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


I'd be willing to bet that Cabrera hits 20 points higher than Braun this year.

Really? You wouldn't say that... Sizemore's "power/speed potential is ridiculous?" Perhaps, and almost certainly, vastly more ridiculous than Braun?

Sizemore in the past four years:
HR: 22, 28, 24, 33
SB: 22, 22, 33, 38

Braun in the past two years:
HR: 34, 37
SB: 15, 14

Add 'em up and you get:
Sizemore: 44, 50, 57, 71
Braun: 49, 51

Sorry, but Sizemore seems to take the cake in terms of power/speed...

In regards to the original question: MCab, then Sizemore/Braun depending upon your preference (I'll take Sizemore).

I think Cabrera is a fat, lazy slob and don't want him anywhere near #8. I'd go Sizemore barely over Braun and then probably Tex.

Wow congrats. You can add up what players did in the past.

We'll see. I have Braun pegged for 40 HR. I don't think Sizemore will break 30 again.

Lol. Ok. If you're talking a redraft league, this is even more ridiculous.

Edit: Funny I notice that he's the same height as Ryan Howard and weighs 20 pounds less. What does that make Howard?

A fat, lazy, triple-crown-threat slob. Yeah, who wants that in the first round?

They're all roughly the same age, too, and Miggy has played about 200 more MLB games than Grady and 600 more than Braun.

Now that he's settled at 1B (with duel 3B eligibility in some leagues) and facing a second year of AL pitching, I go Cabrera, then Braun, then Grady.

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 agree that MCab has the potential to be a triple crown threat. Last year's 1,000 run Tigers flopped and took Cabrera with them. He'll be hitting clean-up all season. I can see him hitting over 40Hrs, 130RBI, and .320.
Braun and Grady just aren't as likely to post the stellar numbers that MCab should.

A mid- to late-second rounder. ;-)
