I want to preface this by saying that I generally take position scarcity/abundance into too much consideration
, so rating Beltran this high shows you what I really think of him as a player. Anyway that being said I would rate them:
A-Rod - Pujols
Soriano - Beltran
Logic - if you care:
A-Rod and Pujols are interchangable based on numbers IMO especially with his move to the Bronx but A-Rod getting the slight nod because of position eligibility putting them in their own class IMO. That being closely followed by Soriano (mainly because of position scarcity) and Beltran since they put up similar type numbers as far as power potential, SB, etc. Then I would say Rolen and Vlad could go either way really, I just happen to be a STL fan and 3B while deep isn't as deep as OF. Then Maggs and Manny are OF therefore their value is slightly less IMO. Thome, Abreu, and Bonds are roughly equal fantasy wise, unless of course BB and/or OBP is counted then Bonds goes up slighty, but not much really. Just my $.02.
