Who to take with the 5th pick

Postby Newbie » Thu Mar 11, 2004 1:05 pm

I have the 5th pick in one of the leagues that I'm in. Its a straight fantasy point league, 10 team. Who would you take? I'm assuming AROD, Pujols, Soriano and probably Helton will be gone. I was thinking either Prior or Vlad or Beltran.

Go with Vlad. Although I really like both Prior and Beltran, Vlad will have a major impact in all 5 categories.

Go with Prior or Beltran.

From what I've seen of Vlad in Spring Training, it looks like he's moving around a little slower so I don't expect him to steal as much as people expect.
