if pujols is there take him!
all these sumbasses like a-rod for some reason. he doesnt hit .300 or does he have a .400 obp. beltran did not hit .270 last year. i know he was god in the playoffs but over the course of the season pujols will dominate. trust me. pujols has been on the winning team the last 2 years.


Umm he said he had the 3rd pick and Pujols would be gone.

Assuming Pujols and Vlad have gone, I would take Randy Johnson 3rd.

I dont have enough balls to take Randy Johnson 3rd. The knee scares me, the move back to the AL scares me, the New York pressure scares me, and his age overall scares me.

It's a ballsy call but I see just as much risk with Beltran for a lot of the same reasons.

With Johnson, the injury really is the only major concern, however he was awesome pitching with the dodgy knee last season, so the risk is worth taking for me.

If you look at his record, when first pitching for a new team, it's quite outstanding.

Houston in 1998 and Arizona in 1999.

If he goes close to doing that again in New York, he will be well worth taking at No.3

Yes, but those were in the National League. He hasn't pitched against a DH in extended time since 97. I think thats a logical concern.

I keep hearing this stuff about him having to pitch to a DH, but really what difference is that going to make. Carl Pavano maybe but we're talking about Randy Johnson here, Top 2 pitcher in the past decade. Why suddenly is a DH going to have a great deal more success against him than a pitcher had. A small amount maybe, but insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

In fact, go and have a look back at his numbers against AL teams when he faced a DL last season. They're actually better than when he faced a pitcher as the ninth hitter in the NL.
