there do not seem to be a lot of free agents that have had their fantasy value increase this off-season. Lot have gone down though.

yeah..so far nobody has really done anything spectacular to help their careers. There is one trade that definitely helped someone's value and that was Kolb going to the Braves. He should get close to 50 saves next year.

Might be a silly fantasy question, but in Yahoo rules, A-Rod will only qualify at 3B next season, correct? Does this slightly decrease his fantasy value, as there are more stud 3Bs than SS's?

I know he still brings more (speed in addition to other offensive numbers) than many/most other 3Bs, but is the gap smaller now that he's a 3B rather than a SS?

A-Rod is no longer a top pick... without SS eligibility, he's not top 5 IMO. I'm sure many will draft him top 5 however, but I won't be one of them.

arod is not the clear top 2 pick like he has been the last 3 or 4 years or so.....he will be top 10 easily(probably closer to #5 or so) because of his stats but with his SS eligibility gone he is not in the top 2 in most everybodys drafts this year......

Did anyone notice that Arod struck out 131 times last year? Since we don't count Ks I give a flip less. He's a top 3 or 4 pick every year regardless of where he plays.

Pujols
Beltran
Vlad
Bonds
Santana
Arod
I know alot of people don't like to draft pitchers first round so if your one of those people then I don't see how Arod would be left out of the top 5.
