I agree. He's so young and once he's got talent around him to drive in, he'll put up great numbers. His power numbers should increase.Ender wrote:Cabrera is the second best pure hitter in baseball behind Pujols. If he has an age related power spike he's going to end up being the #2 pick in most drafts. Without the power spike he's still a first round pick, I have no issues with taking him very early in a keeper draft.

I don't think Reyes really has 20HR potential which puts him well below MCab in my book

How would that benefit MCab? 3B is one of the deepest positions. Anyways, I would have no problem drafting him 2nd in a keeper or dynasty, let alone 6th. He's just a great hitter who is going to improve. I see a regress in Howard and Reyes is way overrated IMO.

What I don't understand is how you can value MCab's "potential" for a power-spike over the "potential" of Howard or Reyes to repeat. I mean they've already done it before, so there's even some potential for them to improve in power, which is scary.
I like MCab, don't get me wrong... I just think putting too much value in the power spike is very very risky. Some guys don't "spike" and some guys don't do it till later. What happens if you draft MCab that early and it takes him 5 more years before he "spikes"? Or never does? I just see it as more risk for him to increase that drastically than for Howard to repeat 2006.
