But I still don't think he will have a better year then arod. I mean thats why the Yankee's traded Sori for Arod.
I think Arods real life baseball value is much greater than Sori's, but it becomes a different game when you start talking about Fantasy. You get no extra points for winning a championship. Look at Ichiro, the game is pure gold to a real baseball owner. But sadly doesn't have much a fantasy value.

I dont see him moving to yankee stadium affecting him THAT much in the way of home runs! Alex Rodriguez does not hit jacks that clear a fence by an inch or two in Arlington. This guy has power to all fields. If we were talking about most other players, then yeah maybe we can bring the stadium into it, but hell....this is one of the best hitters in the game today.
Did you see him go the other way into right centre field in Detroit in 2003 in the top in the 16th inning? That alley is death valley for lefties, and a-rod cleared it easily.
Im sorry but i dont think that a-rod moving to yankee stadium is gonna reduce his number of home runs. He is too good of a hitter. If you dont believe me that he hits with power in all directions, look for yourself.

Have a look at when a-rod has played at yankee stadium even! he has hit just as many jacks the other way, as he has pull.
Alex Rodriguez will stay consistant with HR's, and average, and will obviously increase average and runs.
EXACTLY .....I said the same thing about Sheffield moving to NY. ARod and Sheffield are SO GOOD it dosen't matter where they play they will still be great. "Special players" in their own category.

Parks effect everybody. Arod will still produce, but i think his 50 hr seasons are over. His team dependent stats (runs/rbis) likely go up.
