Miguel Cabrera or Marcus Giles?

I see your point, it sucks to have to dock someone for trying extra hard. Maybe trying extra hard will get him a couple more Stolen Bases or help him stretch a few singles into doubles or doubles into triples. Now if there was only extra fantasy points for "Web Gems"

I think anyone who collides at full speed with another player has an "injury history", but this particular injury doesn't make a player "Injury Prone." might as well throw the injury concern out the window when you are evaluating Giles.


High impact injuries have a higher potential to come into effect later on, while Cabrera is in mint condition :-D

Cabrera is on the elite level when it comes to keepers.


Most definitely, M-Cab and it's not even close.

I'm a huge Marcus Giles fan but I'd still take Cabrera

Cabrera, and its not even close. When we are talking like a top 3 round pick, position scarcity doesn't matter as much.

Unless you are in a league which counts home runs from 2nd basemen as 2 homeruns, M Cab by a wide, wide margin.

I disagree that OF like Cabrera are dime a dozen. He is a special player who is going to be awesome for a long time.

Giles is a good player but he doesn't ride the same bus even though he has many more years of service.
