I dont know about A-Rod's shoddy D...and his un-clutch hitting. I went to last sunday's Mariners-Red Sox game and Manny had two horrible plays where the ball deflected off his body and he pointed at the ball to tell Crisp to go get it.

Man. I don't know about lots of things...first of all, Jered Weaver should not be on anyone's list. Second of all, as I believe someone mentioned before, the reason Reyes is being so often chosen over Tejada is because of all the power that these lineups have. However, it would be interesting to have Ichiro/Crawford in the first and second hole, and then have Miguel at SS. That's something that's highly considerable, but unless you have both of those outfielders, it's probably a good idea to go with Reyes, because he gives you blazing speed and a legit leadoff guy. Also, someone a while back said that they'd take Jones over Beltran, and it got me thinking, I didn't really have a time to think hard last night as I posted right before I went to bed, but I think, looking back, that I'd rather have Vernon Wells than both of them. He plays a great center fielder, and will probably hit for better average than both with adequate power numbers, though somewhat unnecessary on a lineup like mine. So, after rethinking, I've revised my lineup somewhat, and here is my new one:
1. Ichiro Suzuki, RF
2. Carl Crawford, LF
3. Albert Pujols, 1B
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
6. Miguel Tejada, SS
7. Vernon Wells, CF
8. Chase Utley, 2B
9. Joe Mauer, C

With my pitching, I have also decided to substitute Webb for Zambrano...he's more proven, and I'm more confident with him on the mound.

I'll agree that neither are a top notch defender, but they'll score me more runs then they'll cost me. As for ARods "un-clutch" hitting, well i've seen enough stats and read enough opinions on here that i'm not too worried about that.

tejada driving in 150 runs is crazy? he did it once and hes never going to do it again.. you'd have to be out of your mind if you think hes going to get more then 130.. hed be lucky to get 120 this year.. thats like saying reyes will score 160-170 runs this year.. the likleyhood of that is a lot greater then tejadas 150 rbis..

jose reyes is the next generation of short stops, not to mention the best lead off hitter in the game.. tejadas a great player but you have to give the nod to reyes, so young and so much talent..
and all of you homers that put jeter need to jump off the yanks banwagon.

I've still got Ichiro as the best leadoff in the game.

If this were the PLAYOFFS, my super team would look like this:

1. C. Crawford CF
2. D. Jeter SS
3. D. Ortiz DH
4. A. Pujols 1B
5. M. Ramirez LF
6. V. Guerrerro RF
7. A. Soriano 2B
8. A. Rodriguez 3B
9. J. Mauer C

You guys will probably disagree with the pitchers, but they're mainly based on how confident I would be sending these guys to the mound for a big game. Liriano's still a rookie, unfortunately.

SP P. Martinez
SP J. Santana
SP R. Clemens
SP C. Schilling
SP M. Mussina

Bandwagon? Jeter is better than Reyes. Even in this, Reyes' breakout year, Jeter is putting up better numbers. Jeter leads all MLB shortstops in RC and RC/27. Jeter's OPS is over 100 points higher than Reyes. The only area in which Reyes has Jeter beat is runs (team affected stat) and stolen bases (although Jeter's SB% is 10 points higher than Reyes as well).

Sorry bud, but Reyes and his .345 OBP is not the best leadoff hitter in the game.
