Come on. You know that.

I think for the first time ever I have to agree with Curtis.
Stealing a base is going to become an unnecessary risk.

If that's the first time ever, then you must really simpleminded.

Geez man, take a joke. All I was saying is that usually you and I don't see eye to eye.

Also if you're going to make fun of someone's intelligence....at least get your sentence structure correct. ;-D

Curtis is just a grumpy, old, glass is half full type of guy. You'll get used to him. :-D

But if A-Rod is oke, then it could turn out to be a great move, with so many usable OFs can be had later, while 3b is thin as it gets.


Even if you take Arod in the 3rd round and he misses the entire season, it would definitely suck but I don't think your season is over assuming you are playing in a standard league.


I didnt say your season is over, but your chance to win will decrease significantly. And we all play to win I suppose. And with a 2nd rounder production subtracted, and replaced by Lowell, or Mora etc. is not what you want in the playoffs. And thats what Im facing in my keeper, as an A-ROD owner. And I hate that.

They are all goin in round 5-7. And you can add Atkins to that group.
Anybody else is a considerable drop off IMO.

Well if you draft Arod then you shouldn't wait to pick Lowell or Mora.
