Once his control of the strike zone improves, then I'd say he can move to the next level. If not, this level is pretty damn good, too. :-)

Agreed. I dont ever see his Avg. getting to Pujols level but he will continue to get better I believe

I'm not going to put him in Pujols' level yet. I wouldn't bank on his AVG being that high, but the rest seem pretty reasonable to me. He's definitely one of the best young hitters in the game and like Ped said if he can cut down on the K's he is going to be at least at the level right below Pujols. ;-D

yea i think m cabrera can be top 5 or so but i dont see him in the pujols range til he works on them k's,,,but with his age i could definitely see him doing that in the next 3-5 years easily.....and becoming the 1B to pujols

Albert Pujols is not human, and expecting Miguel Cabrera to join him in A-Rod/Barry Bonds land may be a little premature. The HR and RBI numbers may be up there next year, but it'll be a few years before everything else catches up. :-]

That makes sense. I had him a little higher than most last year and he didn't disappoint. I can see the HR going up a bunch but the average and RBI might be a little behind.

Its too bad he is in such a bad hitters park. I don't see him putting up too much more than his numbers fantasy-wise from last season. Maybe a few more HR and and slight rise in BA.

I will admit that the park doesn't help him but we need to remember that he is only 21 years old. Eventually, the sky's the limit for this kid.

i actually picked up miggy on the ww in two of leagues last years from guys who drafted him early and didn't have patience with him. one of the guys was a girl, but anyways. :-b

dunno about pujols' level, cuz pujols is sick. but miggy ain't bad himself. ;-) hopefully the Ks will go down and his avg will keep rising. he had a great 1 season and half in the majors and i don't see a reason for him not to keep getting better. ah, i'm just trying to look smart repeating all you guys have already said. :-b
