Alex Rodriguez is bound for a big year in 2010. His consistency over a 12-year span is unmatched, and he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
Despite missing the first month of the season last year, A-Rod still managed to compile his 12th consecutive season with 30 or more homers and 100 RBI.
Fantasy baseball drafters will have to make the choice of how high to draft him. Yahoo! ranks him third, behind Albert Pujols and Hanley Ramirez. I’d say Rodriguez has the edge over Ramirez statistically, but Ramirez may have more value as a second pick since he’s a shortstop. There are a lot more options at third base than there are at short.
Consider that my first fantasy tip of the year. Expect them to come on a weekly basis.
