Cabrera vs. Teixeira

Seems like most people are in love with Teixeira... How does Miggy compare? For 05.

I actually like Cabrera better than Teixeira at this point.

That's tough. I would guess Cabrera's average and runs will be a bit higher, and Teixeira should have more HR and RBI. I'd probably say Tex, if only because OF is deeper than 1B (1B is actually pretty shallow this year).

I've got Tex matching or exceeding Cab at every level except average. I'd take Tex over Cab simply because of the aforementioned lack of depth at first. Tex is in a better lineup, too. They're both talented, young players that everyone says will explode this year (or soon). I don't think you go wrong taking either, but Tex is my pick.

I doubt MCab is ever going to hit for as high in average. I think its pretty close, and I think Tex will end up with better power numbers, and MCab with slightly better average and runs. Why not have both though, like I do in my auction ;-D

I think he meant as high as Pujols.

I would take Tex this year because I think he will match or do better in everything but AVG and Cabrera won't beat him by enough in average to make up for that.

Yeah, I meant as high as Pujols. He'll hit mid .290, with tex somewhere between .285 and .290. Tex pretty much beat him in RBI, R, and HR in less AB last year so he'll probably lead by a fair margin this year.
