Ive noticed you bolded "March 5th" and I could understand why...My friends and I are having an offline draft for the first time, and thats the date were doing it. But thanks for your advice.

i bolded it to explain what i was confused about. the bolded bit clarified when your draft was and dispelled my misconception. :-)

Vlad, not even close IMO. Id be happy to get him if I didn't have a pick in the top 3. Sounds like somebody's wasting a top 3 pick on A-Rod.

Alright then I guess the ruling is Vlad for the 4th overall pick. But what if the guy whos 3rd overall, then what? Go with Arod over the others...Anyone?

I wouldn't touch A-Rod that early... unless I'm at 9th or 10th I'm letting somebody else take him. Manny would be my man at #4 if Pujols, Beltran, and Vlad were all gone.

Are you serious? I personally disagree unless you have some good reasoning. Anyone agree with him?

Vlad has to be the choice in a 5x5 league. He's a great base for all five categories. Grab Jeter later on and you're set.

Yeah I'm serious... A-Rod isn't in Texas anymore and it showed. And I doubt his SB's will remain that high. 20 would be more than I'd predict. And he's not at SS anymore, he's at 3B which is loaded. Not that I'm docking him for that, I'm just no longer giving him the benefit of position scarcity that he got the past 6 years or so.

If Vlad is there then take him, if he's not I'd want to trade down, if there are no trades then I'd grab Tejada.
