Who's your number 1 for next year?

Postby mikemcj55 » Tue Jul 27, 2004 4:25 pm

Hey guys
Since I am stinking at fantasy baseball this year, I am turning my sights to next year's draft. In my opinion, there will be a changing of the guard at the number 1 pick. A-Rod will only have 3b eligility next year, it appears. Given the emergence of 3b this year as the strongest infield position (Chavez, Lowell, Mora, Ramirez, Glaus, Chipper, Rolen, Blaylock, Huff), it seems that position parity will push A-Rod from his #1 slot. This leaves open the question, who would be your #1??

Just interested in opinions. thanks

christ, if arod steals like this again, I might go him anyway. not like 3b is so deep.

you have rolen blalock, tex loses eligibility, lowell isn't that great and there were some surprises. 3b got deeper, but its not like OF.

It's up in the air again if you ask me. I'd take Pujols but a strong case will be made for A-Rod as well.

PS: You don't need the # symbol when you write the word "number"....it means the same thing.

Pujols, although I think that Beltran could make a case for number 1.

Wait, don't take A-Rod because 3B is so deep. Isn't 1B even deeper???

If you judged them based on pure stats, I would go A-Rod because of the steals. A-Rod's .277 BA, 24 homers and 62 RBIs are venturing on career lows. I would expect him to do much better next year.
