Wright combined WARP3 (Defense and Offense, park adjusted, etc.): 33.3

Cabrera WARP3 last 4 years: 36.7

 

Last 2 years Wright: 21.4

Cabrera: 22.5

 

They are close. But I would argue Cabrera has been better. For what it's worth, Baseball prospectus has Cabrera as worth 31 runs above replacement on defense over the last 2 years, and Wright is at 37. So the whole "OMG CABRERA SUCKS WRIGHT IS TEH BEST" argument is f***ing stupid.

You can always count on bobob to use statistics that I don't understand to cement my thoughts.
