What's wrong with A-Rod???

some notes worth mentioning.......a pitcher with high K's will be valuable for me. I plan on getting a good pitcher in the 2nd or 3rd round..................also Double Plays are valued here....that is why i am considering Arod at 3rd..............but what do you guys think overrall???

I have absolutely no idea who the best choice would be with that system. You'd have to run it all through a spreadsheet, and I don't have time for that - so sorry, there's no way I could give a recommendation, especially with DP's being on ther, as well as other weird categories.

well i added up points from last season, and got randy johnson having roughly 1100 total points (give or take a little)...and arod having around 830 points (give or take a little).......it seems randy dominated with points......but pitchers are very risky.....especially with a first overrall pick......

so you guys dont think 300-115-40-120- and 20 SB arent top three? because thats what i am projecting

i know beltran wont sniff those numbers...the guy hit 267 and I've seen him picked first overall in the rototimes mock draft...unbelievable!

First of all, I think A-Rod will hit about .280, so since we have different projections, that's where the different rankings comes from. And if you think Beltran won't sniff those numbers, you'll be sorry once the season gets underway. He'll easily have better numbers than A-Rod in all categories except HR's. And he'll have 2 or 3 times as many SB's.

I disagree entirely. I don't see Beltran beating A-Rod in any cat. except steals. But it's all a matter of opinion, and I'm probably putting Pujols-Vlad-ARod-Beltran as my order right now.

Why, oh, why do people keep projecting A-Rod to only have 15 steals next year? Those projections are crap. Pencil him in for 25.
I've heard the arguments about steals declining at his age and about his three-year averages.
None of them account for a simple fact. The Yankees let their stars run. A-Rod has a low caught-stealing rate. Always has. He's running more, he'll steal more. The stats point to this. People who say otherwise are talking gut feeling, not stats.
Now that i have that off my chest, i couldn't begin to imagine who is worth more in a league that complicated. I hate those leagues. They're a mess. I wouldn't get in one if you paid me.
Now that i have that off my chest, Randy Johnson should score about a million trillion points in that configuration. I thought it was nuts for Santana to go that early, but I can see why.

yeah, thanks for all the input.......i think ill go for a pitcher early i just dont think in the first round........reason being: pitchers are very risky.........with injuries and stats.......i can still get a real good pitcher in the 2nd or 3rd round.......so I think that is what i'll do
