Cabrera, this may sound dumb, but Wright went downhill last year after the Home Run Derby. It took Abreu forever to adjust after that, so if given the choice, I'd play it safe with Cabrera in fear that Wright is still trying to pull everything for a homerun

You hit it on the head with wright pulling everything after the HR derby, but i expect him to stop chasing HRs and just hit the ball, he has great plate discipline.

You can't go wrong with either, personally i am a Wright fan so i think this will be a career year for him, especially in that mets line-up.

Miggy. David Wright fell off the planet in the second half last year so I'm not holding my breath on his numbers this year. They were good last year, but Miggy is going to be a stud this year again.

I'm going with Cabrera. David Wright is a very good hitter, but Cabrera is a great one.

I like Cabrera, his potential is just so great that you know the year he develops his power the League will be hiding in fear. The guy is a man child and the combination of power and avg is just to appetizing. Although I still worry some about the lineup, Hanley is great, but I don't think Uggla will be the same seeing as he never showed that kind of power anywhere else, and guys like Jacobs, Hermida, and company are still FAR more attractive at bats than Mi Cab.

I will go with Miggy but by a nose. I think Wright has the ability to produce a 30/20, .300 season, which would obviously put him late first round near where MCab is right now. You can't go wrong with either IMO.

I also like Miggy.

Mainly cuz of wirghts batting spot. 5th isnt gonna load you with a lot of runs. though he can run, miggy is the better hitter

predictions

Miggy
.335 30 115 110 5

Wright
.315 25 105 90 20
