-He's smoking peyote???? Your saying the quickest player to hit 350 bombs, highest played most transitional player in baseball in their time ( Ruth was a Pitcher w/ 94 wins and a era of 2.28) is not a triple crown canidate. Take A-Rod. I've got a list of the Top 100 from espn and cbs.sportsline that rate A-rod. Two have him number 1. 1 has Vlad. Then he picked A-rod second. Thats in the Espn Insider.

I'm not so sure that ARod will have as many steals, lowering his value. And, those numbers last year are what I would say he'll be around because Yankees Stadium isn't nearly as good as Arlington for hitters. Pujols is the obvious #1, he is one of the most consistent players every year and puts up MONSTER numbers.
There is no adjustment. NY is murder on right handers, Texas is a boon for every hitter. There is no way around it. We have seen what Vlad can do. We have seen what Pujols can do. From his experience at Yankees stadium, we can speculate that ARod should come close to, maybe a bit better this year. Not good enough for me to take him over Vlad or Pujols. And, I think you forgot as little as 2 years ago Vlad was a SB MONSTER. In 02, he hit 39 HR, 40 SB, scored 106 runs, 111 RBI, and batted .336 IN MONTREAL. He won't hit 40 SB again, but I can easily see him reach the 20-25 range as he gets healthier from the back. Vlad has batted over .300 in every year except his rookie. Pujols has been a monster every year hes been in the league. I just don't see why you would take ARod over these two. Because of some extra stolen bases? He doesnt even play a shallow position anymore, which was a huge part of his value. I'll take him 3rd or 4th. But, Pujols and Vlad have a stranglehold on 1-2 for me.Yoda wrote:Do people realize that 04 was the worst season he's had since 1997? The ball park thing just doesn't convince me. He hit great at Safeco which is a much tougher to hit in. He needed a year to adjust in NY, now it's time to play. I expect a big rebound.
