Pujols puts up consistent numbers and will be a Cardinal for a long time. Beltran put up great numbers in his contract year. I would have to go with Pujols. Besides, what if Beltran does go to NY? He will play in a pitchers' park, and his numbers could very well go down(see: AROD).

Minute Maid and Yankee Stadium aren't that different if you look at park factors. And considering MM favours righties, and YS favours lefties, you'd have to think it might help Beltran since he bats lefty most of the time. His OPS could be hurt though, considering the lack of doubles and triples Yankee Stadium gives up. But RBI and R - I see an increase for both of those. Same with SB's. The only think I can think a move to the Yankees would hurt is his BA but with A-Rod and Sheff presumably hitting behind him - he should see his share of fastballs, and I believe he's a fastball hitter.

100 is neutral, above 100 is to the hitter's advantage.

R Factor:

Yankee Stadium: 92
Minute Miad: 100

HR factor:

Yankee Stadium: 103
Minute Maid: 108

The higher the better... so MM is better in both areas, but like I said MM favours righties, while YS favours lefties... and Beltran bats left-handed most of the time. I wish I could find something that shows what the factors are for lefties/righties separately :-?

but really, i'd go with beltran, regardless where he ends up ;-)

i have a question though. moose said it was a roto league, if it was a HTH league, would you guys change the pick or it doesn't really matter cuz it's the #1 pick.
