Here's a hint: I never took Beltran.
Just b/c you are in first place doesn't mean you are wrong. For whatever dumb reason, you think Miggy is not up there with Manny, Pujols, Etc.
A lot of people passed on Beltran. That doesn't mean you will be right about Cabrera.
Miggy is certainly not up there with Pujols. Pujols has done better than MCab for what, 5 years now?
How can you say that? Do you really value past production that much? Adrian Beltre did better than Pujols last year too......
Look at their futures, and MCab's is brighter. He is the absolute best young player in the game IMO...and we're just now getting a glimpse of the potential he has. We haven't even come close to seeing his peak yet....not that we've seen Pujols' either, but I do think his production has somewhat leveled off, while Cabrera's is obviously still rising.
Lets compare them yearly.
Pujols Rookie Season:
Cabrera (first full season):
Pujols Second Season:
Cabrera Second (full) season Projected:
In that case id rather have Cabrera because of the difference in avg. Whos to say how Cabrera will do in the next 3 years, but if he keeps improving he is going to at least match if not have better stats than pujols. For example:
Cabrera increases at 7-4-9-.61 a year.
So at the end of the year 2008 Cabrera will have hit 129-49-148-.538
Ill take those numbers.
