the guy has eligibility at LF and 3B in Yahoo...

How early is too early to draft him in a 10team league? I'd love to get him after the 10th Round (even though he's #83 on ESPN's list in average drafts) simply because he's not a big-name kinda guy and I'm hoping he'll slip through the cracks.

I think he can be a top10 3B this year. Any thoughts?

I think he'll likely be gone by the 10th Round. You might have to grab him 6-8th if you really want him... IMO

I think he will be gone by the 10th as well....but in season leagues...I am not sure I would draft him much earlier....but in a keeper...I would draft him a little early just to be able to hang on to... :-)

I agree with this. He will be very good I just am not sold on him for this year.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I traded for him in my keeper league, because this is the last time you'll get him cheap. In a season league though, I wouldn't take him very early. He will not be among the cream of the crop this year, but certainly will be, barring injury, in 2-3 years.

The problem with Cabrera in a keeper league, is that this is the last season that he will be eligible at 3B. He will be playing RF this season, and will loose his 3B eligibility for next year. Next year he will qualify at OF, and will just be an average fantasy player.

I think Cabrera is a stud. Eligible at 3B and OF. World Series experience is just gonna make him better. Don't forget he hit cleanup for the Marlins in the Series. Tell me Jack McKeon doesn't know something. I can see .290 25 HR 90 RBI this year. Can you say the next "Pujols?"

Your logic is all wrong. First of all, Cabrera's a natural 3B, so if Lowell goes down again, even for a couple weeks, Cabrera will fill in and get his eligibility back. Even if that doesn't happen, an AVERAGE fantasy player? Are you kidding me? This guy RIPPED up AA at age TWENTY (with better stats than Pujols at the same age, at the same level).

I'm not saying he's going to be Albert Pujols (although a good portion of MLB acouts think he will be), but he will CERTAINLY be at the very least (barring injury) an upper-tier outfielder with loads of pop in the coming years.
