Ack, I would not like to draft at spot #6, I still can't make up my mind but now I think I"m leaning MCab, Braun, Sizemore.

MCab's potential to hit over .330 is hard to ignore, but I"m still not sold on Detroit's offense over Milwaukee's.

Keep in mind with those HR/SB numbers that Braun didn't play all of 07 and was hurt for the last 1.5 months of 08 or his numbers would have been better.

I'll take Braun or MCab here, Sizemore is more of a late 1st rounder for me. My numbers aren't finished yet but it won't surprise me if one or both of these guys end up in my top 5 though.

Like some others, I see Cabrera as the topper of the 3 then Braun and Sizmore as 2 and 2A. I compile averaged projections from several sources, both free and pay. here's what the composites say:

Cabrera - 590AB / 38HR / 2SB / 124RBI / 99R / 318AVG / 989OPS
Braun- 591AB / 38HR / 15SB / 108RBI / 99R / 293AVG / 912OPS
Sizemore- 611AB / 29HR / 32SB / 85RBI / 114R / 281AVG / 884OPS
61*
70**73**762***

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

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).


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.


Wait... so you're ragging on me for looking at history?
And then you're saying that you're right because you project something which doesn't even work out logically?

:-?

Think about, take a break from your ego and think.
If Braun hits 40 HRs, and steals 15 SBs, that's 55 total.
If Sizemore hits 28, and steals 35, that's 58 total.

And that's given your "pegged" projections (most have Sizemore surpassing 30 HRs)... you're still wrong...
Sizemore is the obvious speed/power combo choice here. Braun is a beast, and deserves serious consideration, but you're blatantly ignoring simple facts with your claims.

I think Yoda likes Braun's combo of high HRs and adequate steals more while not expecting Sizemore to repeat his career homer numbers from last year. I might be mistaken though. ;-D

Ya I simply don't believe Sizemore will hit 30 HR again and I always lean towards players who hit more HR since speed tends to fluctuate. I like both but I just think that Braun will put up ridiculous numbers this year.

I've been away from this site for a while, but when did HR + SB become a category or an in any way meaningful way of ranking players?
