Miguel Cabrera All Star

Postby Fpower » Wed May 05, 2010 3:36 pm

Two home runs today, and I never see any threads about him. Is he such a consistent annual force that he's boring? Anyway, just wanted to give him a little love for his work, and I hope he starts at 1B for the American League this summer.

He's on a MVP pace right now. I really believe he got himself together this past offseason and is more dedicated to the game. If his past lines were not his best effort, we can only imagine what he can produce from now on.

Funny, I was just considering starting a thread about him, too. Hard to believe the guy is just 27 years old considering all he's accomplished--it seems he's been around forever already. What's scary is, typically speaking, he should just now be hitting his power prime. I think right now he has to be the consensus second ranked 1B behind Pujols with Fielder, Teix, and to a lesser degree, Howard, all struggling.

I wonder where he would go in drafts held today? Pujols, Hanley, Utley, Braun, Miggy? I think he deserves a spot in the top 5.

Got him # 14 in one league and #19 in another league. Needless to say I'm pretty happy with those picks :-D

It's amazing Cabrera fell that far. I was taking him as early as 6 or 7 in drafts. I almost got Pujols and Cabrera on one of my teams because he fell, but he was picked one spot before me. If he played for the Yankees, he'd be one of the first few off the board.

No joke. His production is easily worth a top-five pick right now, even if you ignore the slumps that some of the first round guys have started with.

I think the best part about him right now has got to be what the Tigers locked up his salary at. $19M/year through 2016 is no joke for an organization, but it looks like an absolute steal compared to Howard's new contract when you look at his production/age. After Fielder/Pujols sign their new deals in the next year it'll look even better.

Completely agree. People do forget that he's only 27. I had him pegged for a career year this year, IMO .340/40/130+ is definitely attainable.

He is one of the few players today who could win the triple crown (though it is doubtful he will). Everyone knows he is good, so there really isn't much to talk about, just like Albert Pujols.
