If your league favors RBI's then I would lean towards Cabrera. With Rollins seemingly entrenched in the leadoff spot, his RBI's will be suppressed big time. Cabrera is doing it all right now and while there should be a dropoff on some of his numbers I would actually prefer the younger Cabrera to Rollins right now.
On a side note, in what type of league are you playing where Cabrera is still on the waiver wire in mid-May?
I'm in a points league and he's the scoring system for batters in our league:
Runs (R) 1
Singles (1B) 1
Doubles (2B) 2
Triples (3B) 3
Home Runs (HR) 4
Runs Batted In (RBI) 1.5
Sacrifice Hits (SH) 0.5
Sacrifice Flys (SF) 0.5
Walks (BB) 1
Strikeouts (K) -1
Ground Into Double Play (GIDP) -2
Net Stolen Bases (NSB) 1.5
Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 15
We have 7 players so the usual suspects are at SS of each team except for 2 surprises - Tulo, Hanley, Rollins, Reyes, Alexei, Starlin Castro, and a yankee fan with Jeter.
If I drop Rollins I'm pretty sure he will get picked up by the guy who owns Jeter. Should I do it??
