Right. Who has more authority in assessing a player's value? Those that do it for a living and get insight from both scouts and advanced stats or those who get paid solely to play the game well and not for their ability to determine how valuable offense, defense and base running are? I frankly don't see why the player's opinions would matter that much. Pitchers might have insight that Cabrera is a better pure hitter and there won't be much argument there. But, they aren't going to know how much weight to put on his decided disadvantage in defense and base running relative to his advantage in hitting.
