Both hit 37 last year. M-Cab had 21 after the All-Star break to Braun's 14.
In his second full season in the AL, my money would be on Cabrera.
Did you really look at all the facts before that 'huh"?
Braun matched Cabrera's career high
of 37, in only his 2nd year
in the big leauges (2008).
Also back in 2007 (Braun's 1st season) he also matched Cabrera's career high at the time, which was 34......and Braun did it in 44 less
Obviously current health is an issue, and I'm not saying I wouldn't rather have MCab (especially since he's 3B eligible), but to me there's little doubt that Braun has at least a little more power potential.Career HR per AB
MCab approx 1 HR per 19 AB
Braun approx 1 HR per 15 AB
I think Braun has a little more power, but I also think I'd rather have MCab for this year.
