Arod - .290 avg 116 runs 39 homers 109 rbi's 26 sbs

Tejada - .313 avg 104 runs 39 homers 136 rbi's 5 sbs

Does this change anything by any chance. But I guess the numbers favor Arod?



I posted earlier but I will post it again

Beltran
Pujols
Vlad

look. doesn't this sort of depend on the format of the league? i mean... points? roto? h2h? OBP vs AVG? SLG vs HR?

ask the question again when you know the scoring system...

If OBA is an added offensive category that only helps Manny more... and I'd take him over A-Rod even if OBA isn't being used. With OBA, I'd go like this for my top 4:

Pujols
Beltran
Vlad
Manny

I wouldn't consider A-Rod there, but that's just me... trade down to get Manny later on I guess.

With OBP as a category and assuming this isn't a keeper league I'd take Bonds ;-D He should single handedly give you that category ;-D

Ok then I have a great idea. Ill trade my 4th overall for the 7th overall. The owner of the 7th overall is bound to trade with me. Therefore Ill probly have choices between Helton and Ramirez who will put up similar numbers to Arod and Tejada anyway. Anyone think that might be the best idea we got so far?

Ok, yeah, I just asked the owner of the 7th overall pick if he would do that and he said yes he would.

Vlad

I know a lot of people say this on position scarcity but you have to look at it wholisticly, take say Vlad Guerrero and Bobby Crosby, add there stats, it will be better than taking Miguel Tejada and adding the stats of an outfielder from the same round as Crosby. Tejeda is better than crosby but tejeda doesn't get enough stats to make up for how much better Vlad is than the other outfielder. (in general, exceptions are like soriano's 38/41 season which compares with vlads numbers well, in general a position scarce player won't match up favorably enough with a position rich player)
There are 3 ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way, and the Max Power way!

Well if you offered your 4th overall pick for his 7th of course he'd do it :-D

And yeah I forgot about Bonds... I havn't done rankings with OBA so I couldn't say for sure but Bonds would definately be near the top.

I know, but Im saying if I had the 7th overall pick who puts up very similar numbers and Im in the middle of the pack which is a good thing.
