An example of the Red Sox nation grasping at straws? :-? ;-) I wouldn't discount the Mariners' 2000 season.

what an inciteful statement. A-rod was #1 before and with his 3rd base eligibility, he is still easily #1. Puljos is a solid #2, but not 1

Definitely he's still #1.

He's moving away from the best park to hit in to a ball park that is pretty neutral for RHB. But in that lineup he'll probably get a few more ABs. Look for the usual # of HRs, and a chance for a lot more RBI.

Any idea where he'll hit?

I'm guessing the Yanks lineup ends up looking something like:

Lofton
Jeter
A Rod
Sheff
Giambi
Matsui
Posada
Williams
2B

I would think A-Rod would get some time in at SS during the season. Now whether it's 15 games or not remains to be seen. If Jeter goes down for any amount of time, A-Rod will slide over to SS and get the 15 he needs to be eligible in Yahoo for '05.

A-rod is still the clear #1. Check out the rotoworld article someone posted. They make some good points. Namely, that some of Arod's # may go down slightly in Yankee stadium, but his runs will definitely go up with all the bats around him. In fact, on paper the 2004 Yankees are the most menacing offensive team I have ever seen. Arod/Sheffield/Giambi/Jeter/Posada/Williams. Good god. If Matsui duplicates last year's stats...I don't wanna think about it....

The question was what happens if ARod plays 3B all year and loses ss eligibility. Any player is much more valuable as a ss as opposed to a 3B. ARODs numbers look great against anyone, but his 45Hrs look much better against the SS crop that hits 10-15 on average vs the 3B crop wher you have 4-5 other gusy that will hit 30-35 and drie in 100.

Without ss eligibility you have to look at the numbers. It's close, but I'd go with Pujols

well, compare puljos to a-rod, puljos is an OF and if you maybe 3b, 1b. Even if Arod is limited to 3b which I doubt he will, 3b is almost more shallow than SS. The best 3B is Rolen/Chavez who dont compare to Nomar still. That would inhance A-rods position if anything. And stat for stat, a-rods numbers are better, no question a-rod

I own ARod in a keeper so I am banking on Jeter hitting the DL at some point this year and allowing ARod to play SS for a couple of weeks.
