What's wrong with A-Rod???

I agree its a big risk - but as with all players you measure risk and reward, and to me, I see the reward that RJ has and say you have to take that chance. If he pitches the way he did last yr he will be the fantasy MVP in NY - by a lot.

But he didn't . He missed games in June with a hamstring problem. The thing is you can never guarantee your first round pick is going to stay healthy all year. Pitcher or Hitter.

And I'm right with CM on Randy Johnson.

A-Rod's out of Texas, and is no longer a top pick. Once those SB's come down to reality, his value is going to come down with it. I'll let everybody else waste high picks on him.

He's going to be somewhere in my top 4, I just don't know where yet.

I'm thinking 40-120-.295 with 10-15 SBs for him this year.

My mind isn't made up about Beltran yet, so I'll wait and see on exactly where I fit A-Rod in.

the reason I ask this is because i have pick 5 in my draft and I have already been hearing who everyone is taking. It looks like Arod and Vlad will be available for me at pick 5 and I am trying to figure out who to take. What do you guys think??????

Man, go with Vlad. He'll be all over A-Rod like a cheap suit.

What are the league settings? If it's normal 5x5 I'd jump all over Vlad at #5. He's way better than A-Rod. How'd he get that far anyway?

I was wonderig the same thing. Vlad should be gone before 5. Take him if he's there.
