Already traded him for Pujols in a package deal, and I'll be laughing all the way to 1st place.

I'm not saying trade him for some flash in the pan. That's the whole point of my saying trade him while he still has value. You can get very good players for him right now. Do it.

I don't understand how trading ARod for Pujols makes your team so much better. You could have made a better trade than that.

I have Arod and if I got offered Pujols straight up, I would do it in a heart beat in 5x5 and points leagues. Pujols will hit for a much better average, around the same HRs if not more (now that Arod is in Yankee stadium), around the same RBIs, and will score more runs. The only thing Arod has on Pujols is steals, and I'm willing to bet Arod won't steal much at all this year. If Ks are included, Pujols blows Arod out of the water.

In most points formats, Pujols scored 15-20% more points than Arod last year.

Me too. If he's still struggling at the All-Star break I won't call you an idiot..........but then again he won't be struggling still at the All Star break.

Quaker, I think you are forgetting the fact that ARod qualifies at SS and soon to be 3rd base. If Pujols still qualified at 3b I can see trading ARod for Pujols.

True, I guess it would depend on what else I had at SS.
