That's a good piece of advice. If you are uncomfortable taking Arod (I would be very happy to have Arod in a keeper), then trade draft positions with someone around pick #5 or #6 that way you can get Prior and have a better spot for the rest of the draft. ;-D

I would take A-Rod as well, but if you're worried trade draft pcks. EIther way, I wouldn't take a pitcher #1. Picthers go down way to easily to take first, especially if you're picking 1 and 24...too much room. You need a hitter that can help you everywhere. Take A-Rod, Pujols, Vlad or Soriano.

I'm thinking of taking Prior. A-rod is a safer short term lock, but he has been around 10 years Prior a better pick for the future?

Any other good suggestions or advice?

the single biggest mistake you can make is looking at '05 keepers in '04. disregard the whole keeper thing, remove it from your thought process. Play to win now. Look at your keepers next January. you will be much better off IMHO. That is the best advice i acan give ...serioussly

Arod should always be the #1 pick

A-Rod is the unquestioned #1 pick for at least the next 5 years, gotta love him!!
