    Miguel Cabrera vs. Mark Teixeira

    Who do you think is better? Big hype about Tex so far this season, but I think Cabrera has the edge.

    Cabrera: Higher AVG & OBP
    Tex: More HR's + RBI's, higher SLG, OPS and OPS+

    Defensively, Tex has the edge per UZR/150.

    I'll take Tex.

    Tex is a better all-around player and a much better player on defense.

    Um, Albert Pujols disagrees

    They have VERY similar offensive production. I guess it depends on how you define better. I think I'd prefer Teixera. He's a switch hitter, a better fielder, and I have more faith that he'll stay in shape going forward.

    That said, their career wOBA are identical.

    Thanks to vick27m for the userbar.

    I truly expected one of them to be clearly better. And there really isn't a great deal of distinction between the 2 offensively.

    Tex
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Tex ... especially when you factor in defense. He has made the Yankees infield much better.

    Ill take Tex, they are pretty similar on the offensive side, but Tex pulls out ahead with his strong D.

    I voted for Miguel Cabrera, but after taking defense into consideration I guess Teixeira has the slight edge. They're very close offensively and they're both fairly young. Mark Teixeira is 29, and Cabrera is listed at 26. However, a lot of foreign players lie about their age so he could really be a little older.

    Since moving to 1st base last season, Cabrera has settled in more than nicely. He has made unbelievable plays, and only a few errors, maybe none I don't recall any.

    Actually, he made 9 last year and has made 4 this year.

    Tex made 5 last year (in more games) and hasn't yet made an error this year. Also, errors are sometimes misleading because you don't get an error unless you touch the ball, so if you just don't get to as many balls because of less range (Cabrera) your errors are going to be understated compared to the guy with better range (Tex).

    Either way, any stat that you care to look at, Tex is a much better defender that Cabrera.
