He's also good looking.

That is ridiculous. Total number of seasons that Jose Reyes has been a "bona fide superstar"? Please, enlighten me....

Your first pick needs to be about production, aswell as consistency. You don't use the first pick in the draft on a guy with talent, who has had one good year.

I'm moderately amused by the repondants who claim it's always Albert, and then some pretender like Soriano, Beltran...Arod? Arod was the consensus number 1 for several years, and he and Albert have seesawed at #1 the last few years. Clearly Pujols is the guy you snag here. But Rodriguez isn't remotely in the same category as some of the other flashes in the pan mentioned. If consistency is what you crave in your #1 choice, Arod is almost in a class by himself. Even in the train wreck of a season he's just completed, very few guys wound up with better numbers.

It is beyond stupid to take Reyes over Pujols. Not saying Reyes can't or won't outproduce Pujols but come on... We are talking about a player who never hit more than 10 HRs in a season in his professional career until 06.

What's not to like about him? He puts up fantastic numbers across the board and there's nobody you could trade for who would match his value.

Excuse me while I beat this dead horse here...Pujols was my number 1 this past season, and there's no doubt he's number 1 next season as well.

I don't know about the muddled middle but I do know for SURE that I will have no reservations about taking Grady Sizemore in the late first or early second round.
