he is Alex frickin Rodriguez.
This whole thing about him moving parks and thus his HR and avg go WAY DOWN is a bunch of BULLS***.
He is Arod for gods sake and last season he had a "downb year" by not reaching 40HR and 300avg.
Arod started out real slow last season and then got on track.
If you don't take Arod wit the 1st or 2nd pick I think u are surely mistaking, I see him hitting 150 RBI this year. And for those people who think he won't steal this season like last, ur wrong.
Do you realise Arod went from the Rangers to the Yanks and his Stolen Bags went wayyyyyyy up
And Soriano went from Yanks to Rangers and his Bags went WAYYYYYYYYYY down.
You see what im getting at? NY runs, Arod will run in NY b/c they run a lot. Alex Rodriguez.
I believe Arod is the #1 pick, you just can't go wrong here.
Hitting in that lineup, the 150 rbi is not a stretch imo. the 45 HR is no problem, he has hit 55+ before. and dont even try to tell me that his park change will make him hit 20LESS Homers........no i dont think so.
Alex Rodriguez is the #1 pick over pujols,vlad,and beltran for these reasons
he has more power then beltran, and will still steal 20+ bases even though beltran will steal 35+. The 10-15 less SB's are more then made up for by him destroying beltran in RBI and most likely more homers.
He beats Vlad b/c i think their power numbers will be similar, vlad will hit for higher avg, but arod will steal more bases.
He beats pujols b/c pujols has that little foot problem and as small as that is, its big enough for me to not take him over arod,vlad, and beltran at this point in the spring.
So yes at this moment I would take Alex Rodriguez with the #1 overall pick, do I change that yes, many times I think hmm I like pujols #1 today. If only Arod still played Shortstop he would be the Consesis #1 pick like he is every year.
However this year he its not, and i agree pujols, vlad, and beltran are all right next to arod.
You can't go wrong taking any of those 4 guys with the #1 pick.
