No, I'm just being realistic in that I'd rather have Pujols or Vlad. I'm just not a subscriber that despite all evidence that ARod is going to return to his Texas numbers.

My Projections

A-Rod: 115 41 111 24 .294
Pujols: 131 48 123 5 .334


Based on my statistical analysis, Pujols is the better pick. He had a +6.84 at first base and A-Rod had a +4.29 at third (higher numbers are better). Pujols puts up much better numbers and A-Rod plays at a deeper position.

Pujols is a crazy slugger, but I'm in favour of the 25-40 SB to make up for the edge that Pujols has over the other 3. By grabbing the total package in your first pick, don't have to waste a starting slot on a speed demon who could hurt you in the power categories.
If Vlad returns to 25 SB hes handdowns #1. I'll say Vlad and Pujols beat ARod enough in BA and Vlad gets somewhere around 20 steals to top ARod. ARod cannot match the numbers that made him a #1 in Texas. It just isn't going to happen.


I'm not looking for A-Rod to match his Texas numbers. If he just improves a little on last year's numbers, and keeps his SB totals, then he's my man. Vlad is also a sick contender if he can get his running shoes back on a dozen more times.

Third base isn't the shallowest of positions this year but it's DEFINITELY not deeper than first base 8-o

see, thats kinda the problem. In order to justify a #1 ranking, he has to do a lot more than a little improvement. Like I said before, he wasnt a top 10 hitter last yr, so to leapfrog Vlad and Pujols would take a lot more than 4-5 HRs.
