Fantasy Baseball: Alex Rodriguez or David Wright?

New, comments

We had some interesting discussion on my Alex Rodriguez post a few days ago, so I thought I would post an article on one of the topics discussed. My article asked if Alex Rodriguez is a first round pick in 2011? I included who I would include as my first round picks in 2011, but did leave out Ryan Braun. I also left out Alex Rodriguez, but included David Wright.

I was very vocal about David Wrights poor 2009 season where he hit just 10 HRs, and I was down on him, but felt going into the 2010 season that he could rebound, and he did. Meanwhile, I ranked Alex Rodriguez as my #1 third baseman going into the 2010 season, and although he drove in alot of runs, he disappointed in the power department.

Here are their stats for 2010:

Name PA HR R RBI SB ISO BABIP AVG OBP SLG
David Wright 670 29 87 103 19 0.22 0.335 0.283 0.354 0.503
Alex Rodriguez 595 30 74 125 4 0.236 0.274 0.27 0.341 0.506

Going into 2011 fantasy drafts, who would you rather have? I would pick Wright, since I like to draft the power/speed guys.
