I see a lot of you are putting down a-rod and in your rankings on who to draft. What do you guys see wrong with him? He's gotta be one of the best overrall players I've ever seen play the game. And for fantasy, hes definitely in the top 3 behind pujols and beltran. he hits homers, scores runs, and steals bases...very well.
Yes, 3rd base may be deep but a lot of the 3rd baseman Im seeing are all injury prone. The only thing I see in 3B this season is the possibility of a lot of sleepers coming out and tearing it up. Also, beltre seems to be the next best 3B behind Arod, and hes on a new team with a new contract. I just wanna hear some of your guys arguments on why you don't like arod early. Or is it just because you don't like him as a person??? I personally dont really like him or any of the yankees as people, but damn.....they can all play the game of baseball.
last year was sort of subpar for a-rod and i guess some people are projecting similar stats. personally, i think he will end up around .300, 110r, 40hr, 115rbi, 15sb. i might take him first if he were still ss elgible. i think he is still a top 3 pick.
There have been several posts regarding this subject, most people are just overthinking. Pujols is at an overpopulated position, but nobody has a problem with him. Granted, Pujols is unworldly, and outperformed Arod by leaps and bounds last year. However, Arod will definitely find himself. That said, I don't want him either, haha.
Moving from Arlington to Yankee stadium has deflated his HR total and BA. That and I'm not sold that he is going to steal 20+ again. If you think it was a just an off year then go ahead and take him in the top 3 but Pujols, Vlad and Beltran are better options IMO.
You're talking about arod's age. Johnson will not be affected by NY, but he still has a bad knee. You just can't take anyone but a player that is guaranteed to be there for the entire season. I took Randy w/ the 23rd pick last year, and was rewarded handsomely. I took Pujols first though, he was guaranteed to play all year.
