Here's my detailed analysis of these four players. Peavy and Pujols ended up closer than I would have expected as I went in with my best attempt at objectivity. In the end I still feel Santana and Teixeira are clearly the better choice due to what I assume to be Peavy's injury risk, which will prevent him from pitching as many innings as Santana by a significant margin. The rates are from Baseball Prospectus.


<pre>Projected Cumulative Values Projected Max Value

Pujols 10.25 11.5
Peavy 8 10
Total 18.25 21.5

Santana 10.25 13
Teixeira 8.75 9.5
Total 19 22.5

Wow, it's 32-32-8 on the poll.
