Vlad is the best 5 tool player

Postby curious_george_43545 » Fri Feb 25, 2005 5:29 pm

Why do people say that Beltran and Abreu are the best 5 tool players....

Vlad

Avg HR RBI Runs SB
.337 39 126 124 15

Abreu

Avg HR RBI Runs SB
.301 30 105 118 40

Beltran

Avg HR RBI Runs SB
.258 23 53 70 28 90 games


Vlad easily beats Abreu in every cat except steals which he still got 15 while Abreu had a great year on the bases...Bletran will obviously get alot more steals, but his average will be much lower and the rest of his totals shouldn't reach Vlad except maybe the runs...

grrrr... why does everyone keep saying 5 tool for Roto? :-[ %-6

A five tool player has nothing to do with fantasy baseball.

A five category player is what you are referring to.

I like Vlad over Beltran, but I like Alex Rodriguez over both of them.

Beltran going 5-10? A lot of people have Beltran #2 and some even have him at #1. I would be very, very surprised to see Beltran go later than 4, no less 5-10 in any draft.

I think they're basing Beltran's value on his hot streak during the playoffs....not looking at his season as a whole.

In most drafts I've seen, Vlad has gone around 3, while Beltran has gone around 4 or 5, and Abreu around 10.

Vlad, if he steals 20-25, he will be the #1 fantasy hitter. I think he'll steal 20 this year, but I'd still take Pujols over him. Vlad 2nd. But I think people forget that Vlad was nearly 40/40 in 2002. He should run a bit more this year as hes healthier.

Haha. I didn't even notice the "stats" he put up :-b Those are laughable. You can't bank on a half-season injury in projections 8-o
