A guy who' final line is looking like:

.290, 35 HR, 102 R, 112 RBI, 11 SB

Sounds pretty good to me.

ARods final line looks like this.

.282, 35 HR, 113 R, 125 RBI, 15 SB

This is in his worst season ever.

Sounds pretty good to me.

2 more HR's today, and only 1 strikeout in his last 24 AB.

Last time I do this, I promise.

Too bad A-rod's in decline. I remember in his peak when he would have 5 hr, 10 rbi in 4 days...

ARod. I hate you. But he is still a first rounder, not top 3 though. IMO.


Never bench a stud. Over 162 games, the stud will help more then any guess work, platoon, chance start by a lesser player.


why even carry another 3B on your roster if you have Arod.
use that for a starting pitcher, a solid MR or an OF or something else .. :-o


This league has a utility spot, Teahen was in it prior to that. Just a stupid move out of pure frustration. 2 more HR's today, making me more of an idiot...yess.

Jason


He failed to produce even 3rd round value this year. And the fact is that his batting stats were equally underwhelming in 2004. Two down years out of three makes one question what's going on with him.

He's no longer a safe pick in the 1st round. Anyone who took him this year got burned badly. To consider him a no-doubter in the first round, you have to ignore 2004 and 2006.

If he tanks in the postseason again, look out.



If he tanks in the postseason again, he better not be back in 2007 because if he thought the fans are tough on him this year, another choke job in the playoffs leading to the Yanks losing and he will remember this year as the good times in NY.

That said, Arod is going to go first round next year as someone will take him. It will not be me. 2 out of 3 off seasons and non-first round value leads me to let someone else deal with the choker while I take a Manny or Vlad.

He will still go top 10, probably even top 5, but I know I won't be the one picking him. In my opinon, he is no longer the player that makes a serious 40/40 threat every year, nor is he the player that hits close to 60 bombs a year like he was in Texas. I still view him as a very good player, a guy this will hit aroud .280 with 35 home runs 100 RBI and 100 runs with 10 or 12 stolen bases. I think he has been surpased by Wright and Cabrera at his posistion and he is slight ahead of Aramis Ramirez. I'll pass on him next year and take a guy like Ryan Howard or a 5 catoglory stud like Beltran, Reyes or Crawford instead.

You do realize that Arod is hitting better than Wright? And that he's on track to have 115-125 RBI? And 110+ Runs and 35-40HR? And a nice 13-15 steals or so. Oh, and these are bad stats. Anyone looking for a low risk pick, Arod seems to fit the bill. How many people put up even these 'low' stats in a year? Do you know? And how many of them repeat? Your list just got real short.

So basically, you have him near-precisely replicating the worst season of his career? Could happen, but i'll gladly take the over. .295, 40 homers on the dot, 125RBI 110R, 15 SB, and I wouldn't be surprised if I'm significantly low on the BA.
