Halladay Not sure I'd take a pitcher that early. If I did, though, it would be him.
Lincecum Not even sure he's a top 5 SP going into next year
Teixeira Fan of Tex as a player, but there's just no justification for going before Arod next year. No SB, declining AVG, "Late Starter" problem
Wright Matter of preference, IMO, between him and Arod
Howard Wouldn't blame you for this pick, but I personally would not draft a guy this early with 0 SB and < .300 BA
Carlos Gonzalez In a keeper league, maybe. But needs to put it together another season to make it into the 1st round.
Votto Biggest leap forward this year among top players, IMO
Hanley Ramirez Bad attitude catching up with him, may cost him the 1st round next year
healthy Chase Utley emphasis on "healthy"
should all easily go before A-Rod.
Kemp too arguably
If Howard is on this list, Fielder should be too. He's a better bet than Arod to crank out more homers at this point, and it's not his fault that men aren't getting in base in front of him. Howard and Fielder are both like .280 career hitters too. Howard hitting .290 and Fielder hitting .270 are just fluctuations, much like Howard hitting .250 last year and Fielder hitting close to .300. Both are very similar types of hitters (and similar body build too!)
