Ya sheffield is a great consistant hitter, but people just dont like the baggage. He whines alot, and you never really know if he will just quit baseball. Also I may throw in pedro instead of santana at 12, but mwier142 where who would u pick at 12?


Right now, I have no idea. Ask me again next February, and I'll give you an answer.

I might care about his baggage if I really had to deal with him as a human.

I'd be concerned about having Soriano on that list, if he does leave Arlington. Check out his road numbers the last two years.


Dude he can just be benched or choose not to play. The guy has so many contract issues, hell likely sit out a whole season if he gets an extra few million in the end.

Can you share what you are smoking?

What team is going to bench one of its best hitters for any extended period?

And for all the nonsense Sheffield talks, he's never played fewer than 130 games in the last 13 years.

Let's get something straight here. Teixeira started at a later age only because he went to college. He was the most feared hitter for 2 years in college baseball. He was probably going to get called up after a half season of A/AA ball, but he got injured which ended that idea. The next season he started for the Rangers and hit 26 homers with 84 RBI. We all know the rest from there.

As far as top 12 next year. Top 10 will be A-Rod, Pujols, Vlad, Tejada, Manny, Soriano, Teix, Ortiz, Miguel Cabrera and the last 2 will be anyone's guess but probably Abreu will be one of them.

So you discount what Miggy's doing at age 22? That makes sense.

Umm, how about Tex is having just as good a season as MCab (statisical rank #10 overall to MCabs #7) even though Tex has been in a slump as of late? And he also plays a shallower position? Of course I have both in one leauge so I'm happy ;-D I'd say

1. Pujols
2. ARod
3. Vlad
4. Soriano
5. Tejada (he'll bounce back.)
6. Tex
7. MCab
8. Ortiz
9. Abreu
10. ManRam
11. Who
12. Knows

He's a pretty old guy. At that age, he probably knows that losing a playing year would be losing a year of cash. I don't think he'd be stupid enough to sit out an entire season for money.

IMO, Sheff isn't a volatile player; he just has a rather large mouth.

Do you have no reading comprehension skills or something? I'd assume so since I didn't say anything about Cabrera at all.

Dude its just seriously Sheff is very unpredictable, did you not follow his contract negotiations at the beginning of the year. Hes been whining about thsi and that all season hes a bubble waiting to burst. I bet one day he could just wake up and say im not gonna play today. All he thinks about is himself, and even tho hes a great producer, he is now old and as i said very unpredictable. Maybe you dont remember Sheff's early days but he actually tanked a whole season just so the Brewers would trade him. Does this count as unpredictable?
