So does this make AROD the number one pick again?

He has to be the overall #1 pick. Averages 120 runs, 130 rbi, and 50+ hr over three years!!!!!
And he just joined, perhaps the best lineup in all of baseball. He may make it the best lineup of all time if they can find a decent 2nd.

It is a very distrubing day/weekend. :-P

Arod hit 40 in Safeco.....another monster year from him. He's just now hitting his prime years, which is scary.

it doesn't change the fact that Arod is the best all-around player in the game, thus should be the first posistion player taken.

but it does help out Soriano's fantasy value. He should improve in texas, may not get a ring. but should put up some great numbers being the center of attention down in texas.

In a non keeper, he's still 1. In a keeper, he's not for me. Next year as a 3b, not a ss, i think he slips to 2 or 3.

The funny thing about this deal, other than the obvious, is that people on this board swore up and down that the Yankees were stuck with a hole at third base. Their farm system sucked. They had absolutely no one to offer anyone for anyone in the league.

So now that the damage is done like I said it would be, quit your ridiculous crying. The Sox were just a hair too cheap to get the deal done and now they are paying the price.

A-rod doesn’t lock down the WS for the Yanks, but he should certainly shut up any uppity Boston loudmouth who thinks that the Sox will win the AL East. Please, that dream just evaporated yesterday AM. As usual you will be playing for the wildcard (just a little earlier this year).

As for payroll and salary cap dribble. You are wasting your breath. There will never be a cap in baseball. It’s a worthless statistic that no Yankee fan gives a s**t about. I’m not paying these guys out of my pocket and neither is anyone on this message board.

So quit your whining and lie back and enjoy it.

In 00 he hit 41 hrs. But his Safeco splits were 13/28.

Since you can predict the future, how about giving me the winning lotto numbers?

Seriously, let's play the games first. The best lineup in baseball doesn't guarantee the Yankees ANYTHING.

My question is how bad does this hurt Michael Young's value? This guy was on a lot people's top ten list for 2B and some viewed him as a decent sleeper. If Soriano takes second will Young move to SS? Or is he gonna get the short end of the stick on this?
