M.Cabrera (OF) or M.Giles (2B)....Who would you want more in a keeper league?

I'd have to go with Cabrera. He appears to have more potential and Giles already has an injury history this early in his career.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Not at all considering the weak depth at 2nd base... 20-20 from 2nd base...

I prefer Cabrera..just curious about other's feelings..

Rough call. I would consider Giles because of the low depth at 2b. OF like Cabera are a dime a dozen and he is going to go for a premium because of his age and hype

Cabrera by a wide, wide, wide margin.

Cabrera is on the elite level when it comes to keepers.

I think anyone who collides at full speed with another player has an "injury history", but this particular injury doesn't make a player "Injury Prone." might as well throw the injury concern out the window when you are evaluating Giles.

I disagree here. I respect Marcus Giles, but he plays with an all-out attitude. It's a great thing from a fan's perspective, but not from a fantasy player's perspective when injury is such a risk. He and his brother are both the same way, and I dock both of them points because of it. Again though, it's great from a fan's POV.
