The shortsightedness here on the A-Rod topic is a little ridiculous. I understand why people dislike him, i stated this earlier. To carry that dislike into his play and to use it as gospel is incorrect however. Yes the man has disappeared at times, against the Angels jeter gets the hit, A-Rod can't get a big hit and its annoying because hes done that before whereas Jeter has gotten so many big hits. But Jeter has come up empty before. I love the Yanks but Shef was pretty bad from what I remember against the Angels as well. Bottom line Bonds was considered a choker in the playoffs until the monster 2001 year. Same will happen with A-Rod and Manning one year, and even if you hate them as people this nonsense will end.

I don't care for Carl Crawford. Everybody keeps predicting 20+ HR "someday" but his swing is terrible for power. He's probably the best athlete in MLB, but just one muscle tweak and he has almost no value. Not to mention, he almost certainly hit his career high in RBI last year (he hit 3rd for 2 months, do you see him hitting there on the Rays of the next few years?). IMO taking him in the first round puts you in a hole.
