You Yankee homer J/k
Ok i got to ask why? Arod with his 28 sb last year still was out earned by Vlad and Beltran. I doubt anyone expects Arod to steal 28 again, which means he has to significantly raise the other 4 catergories to pass Vlad or Beltran.
I would rank Vlad the best 5 guy, but if Beltran can hit 320, he likely passes Vlad, who's not a big threat to steal 20 anymore.

It is doubtful that Vlad will ever steal more than 15-20 bases ever again, while Abreu and Beltran should be 30+ steal guys for a few years. I'd rather take Abreu and try to find a chump later in the draft to help out with 15 homers and a few rbis than take Vlad and try to find a guy to get me 20 steals later in the draft.
When it is all said and done, all three are huge studs and nobody could fault you for taking any one of these guys with a first round pick.
