It will be interesting to see where he is ranked going into next year especially if the Manny/Ortiz combo is broken up.
Title: Is MCab's value sinking like the Marlins?
No mention of real or fantasy. The answer is an emphatic "NO" in either case anyway.
Sorry Yoda, but Field is right here. If MCab were traded to the Yankees, everyone with half a brain would see his value improving because he'll have good people in front of him, good people behind him, and an organization hell-bent on winning. That leads to better pitches, more people on base in front of him better RBI, better runs,attitudes, etc.. You cannot deny that. And as such, you cannot deny that in the absence of such players and such attitudes, a player's value is diminished, in fantasy and in reality. MCab minus Delgado, Lowell, and likely Pierre does not equal MCab plus Hermida. Your point about Teixeria being lessvaluable if out of Texas makes the case for Field's arguement. And as far as MCab being in the class (or near it) of Arod and Teix, he hasnt come within 10 HR or 20RBI to either of their #s.....and thats likely because of the place and people they play with, which also strengthens Field's point. Any way you look at Cabrera's value is currently diminished in 06 because of the Marlins' recent transactions.
