Arod Vs Pujols

Postby MLBfanatic04 » Tue Feb 24, 2004 6:47 pm

My league sets up its batters slots like so

c
1b
2b
3b
ss
lf
cf
rf
util
util

Using this setup, is SS/3b Better than LF/1b, is it just me or is arod the no brainer, how can people fight for pujols, average is good, but arod is all around best

The thing with Pujols is that his average wasn't a little better than arod's it was a lot better, about 60 points better.

You have to take A-Rod over Pujols as long as A-Rod has SS eligibility. A-Rod has the biggest position seperation in power numbers in the majors. A-Rod hits 20 more Homers than any other SS every year. This is the biggest power position seperation in fantasy baseball.
The best there is, was, or ever will be, it's me!

SS/3B is definitely more helpful than 1B/OF (although I think a lot of people underestimate the value of the latter combination compared with 1B or OF only). It's not a no-brainer, but A-Rod is the call. His positions more than make up for any edge Pujols might earn in raw stats.

I feel like Arod is the clear number 1 pick.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
