MCab won't get much more than he did last year. He also had monster college stats, which is why he was the 3rd overall pick, but I'm not sure where I can find those.Yoda wrote:CubsFan7724 wrote:How about because he does it at a shallower position, and did it in 60 less AB (545 for Tex to MCabs 603) You think MCab would have beat him in runs, HR, or RBI with him getting 58 more AB in? Plus, maybe Tex isn't hurt in the first month? I don't understand what yourlove affair with MCab is.
I actually don't love anyone. I try to be as objective as possible when it comes to fantasy baseball. Because when you start falling in love with certain players, you'll only end up disappointed.
That being said, your basis for why Teixeira will be better than Miggy is totally subjective. You are basing your entire opinion of two players on what happened in one season. You have failed to provide any other evidence other than Teix had 50 less ABs and hit more HRs therefore he will be better. If your argument included a comparison of minor league/colleg accomplishments, then it may hold water. But the fact is, even if we just compared the two based on 04, what Miggy did at 21 years old is FAR more impressive than what Teix did at 24.
Miggy's upside is far greater than Teixeira's at this point. Teixeira was not puttin the kind of numbers Miggy was putting up at the same age. End of discussion.
