I also have Myoung at 2nd and Matsui at ss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I need that power to have a complete lineup, but i will probably plug reyes in at utility for more speed and runs i guess!!!
I hope this doesnt haunt me all season.

I wouldn't have made that trade, even in the pre-season. Cabrera could be huge in everything but steals. Reyes has a lesser upside in power, and plays in a powerless park, not to mention 8 in Florida and 8 in Atlanta. I'm not saying Reyes is a bad pick (Obviously, Cabrera hits in Florida), but I don't see him coming even close to the RBI and HR numbers of Cabrera.

I traded D'Angelo Jimenez for Cabrera preseason. :-)

The sick thing is, I was asking for Baldelli for Jimenez. He was wanting Mark Loretta for Baldelli. This is a points league where strikeouts count against you, so Baldelli is pretty mediocre.

Out of nowhere, he offers Cabrera for Jimenez. I can't press "accept" fast enough. Now he can't give Baldelli away.

I drafted Cabrera in round 10. I would have never considered it if not for the buzz about him in The Cafe.

More happier I could not be. THANKS Cafe.
