i must be missing something because in all 5 of my leagues im in this year, well minus 1 thats been running for years...VLAD hass always if not fallen past picks 5...he will be there but your bet is to take beltran, agreeing with the stolen base theory, its more value as there is alot of power to be had, helton should be there also as i havent seen him go in the top 4.

usually its pujols/soriano/a-rod/its was prob a sheffield or gagne or pitcher...your safe...

Wow you think he'll hit .475? I don't know, nobody's hit .400 since Ted Williams.

Plus, I think 1008 RBIs is a little far fetched too, because the ratio of RBI to HR is too much. If he does hit the 145 HR like you project, he will probably get a lot, but not 1000.

Vlad, Beltran, Prior.

Both Vlad and Beltran are excellent choices though

Well Matsui had over 100 RBIs with only 16 homers last year. The ratio is pretty close. :-b

Take Beltran or Prior. Prior may miss his first start due to his achillies injury but I'm not worried about that. Plus I've seen Vlad slip to late in the 2nd round too many times this year, and I actually picked him with the 33rd pick in one draft.
