    I think Miggy is slightly better offensively but Adrian is easily the better defensive players so I'd go with A-Gon.

    Wasn't A-Gon supposed to hit 99HRs outside of PETCO?

    No, Fenway isn't a good HR park, it's a great 2B's park. Don't underestimate his shoulder surgery, new league, and HR Contest in curtailing his numbers this year. Stand back the next 3-4-5 for some big ones.

    And oh yes, with adjustments Gonzalez already was Miggy's equal with the bat going back to 2009, with the glove, it's Gonzalez in a walk over.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    I got Miggy slightly ahead. We're talking by maybe one or two runs, so it's not even that significant. Wish there was a "they're equal" option. Both excellent players.

    A-Gon because of his Defense, but I love what Miguel Cabrera has become this year, his power numbers are down, but his personality in the clubhouse has definitely improved, and he's still a great hitter, performing just like he should. Watching every game I've noticed Miguel laughing and joking around in the dugout, being a social guy, always got a smile on his face now, which is a good sign, seeing as I thought he was a piece of **** outside of being a good hitter.

    Gonzalez obviously has the better defense and also has a better effect on the clubhouse. Cabrera barely has an edge of Gonzalez for power, but A-Gon still has the advantage on most other offensive categories.

    2009-2011 Neutralized Slash | RC

    Gonz:

    .291/.424/.579 137
    .313/.410/.535 133
    .341/.408/.555 131

    Miggy:

    .320/.391/.537 127
    .336/.428/.634 151
    .340/.443/.572 135

    AG 401 RC vs MC 413 RC 3 year total...

    BR has AG with a +31 Runs on D in those 3 years and MC a -12, so on average it looks like AG is worth about 10 runs more per year then MC. Close for sure.

    Ouch, really close one
    I guess I'll go Miguel Cabrera, but they are basically equal.

    Miguel Cabrera. He's improved on the D and has had a mmuch better offensive career than A-gon

    Miggy's career has been far and away better than A-gon at this point. This is only the second year that Gonzalez has hit over .300. You have to take into account that Miggy has been putting up elite stats for pretty much his whole career.

    If I'm looking at this year alone I'd probably take Gonzalez because of the glove and the offense is similar. If I'm taking one player for there career I'm taking Miggy. If i had to choose one player from here on out I'd take Miggy.

    Miggy is on his way to a hall of fame career. He is probably the best hitter in the American League at this point. Gonzalez has so much more to prove that he is even on track for Cooperstown.

    Gonzalez isn't in the same conversation as Miggy.
