Who is your #1 overall pick in 2007?

A much better question would be who is going to be taken with the next pick. I cannot think of one fantasy player anywhere that would not take Pujols.

yeah, it's looking like so :-°

I figured some people would play the 1B depth arguement, or Pujols' platnar facititis (sic?), or Howard upside, or Soriano 40/40, or ARod is Kid Wonderful.

A-Rod can't go #1. He's biracial. He said so himself. :-°

This is the closest thing I have seen to someone not taking Pujols #1. And even then he just says he'll consider Reyes.

Wow, Reyes with the #1 pick.. just wow. 8-o

20 out of 20 say they'd take Pujols first.. and I think they're all right.

Not sure who I'd take with the 2nd pick. If Soriano looked to become 2b eligible I'd probably grab him. If it was a keeper league, I'd probably snag Ryan Howard. Otherwise, I'll probably stick with A-Rod.

Another vote for Pujols but I agree with the posters who asked who the #2 pick should be. Myself, I have A-Rod at #2.

I'd have to take Santana number two. I just don't trust that Arod can put up great numbers again in NY.

the only league where Pujols is not the number one overall pick is in the Japan H2HWS, where that honor belongs to Ichiro.

I still can never figure out why people focus so much of their attention as to who is number one and the top 10 is, that type of thing. It just seems like such a waste of time. Your odds of getting who you want in the first round are less than 10% ... You take what you get .. :-)
