Having both of them on one team is toooo dirty.

well its still 3 HR! Hitting 3 HRs is still a big accomplishment no matter what team your playing against.

Whenever somebody makes an offer for Pujols (I have him in two leagues!), all I need to do is think about the day he had Sunday, and the answer is simple.

I've always had Pujols at #1. In 2004 he was ranked #1 at the end of the year so it's not like he hasn't been recognized as such.

Ehh, I have to disagree, I think Quilvio Veras could hit three off our pen anyday...

as long as soriano qualifies at 2nd base i go with soriano first overall. okay let me have it. He hits for average, scores runs, steals bases and hits for Homers and RBIS. Soriano does everything necessary and at a weak position at 2nd base. Now when he is outfield only then i will change my opinion

Hang on, I think I missed something. If you had the first overall pick, you would select Alfonso Soriano?

Pujols is my number 1. He's simply the best hitter and he's a savvy baserunner that's still young enough to continue getting better. ARod is most likely at his ceiling and while I don't expect him to regress much for a few years (probably not for 6-8 years) he will slow down a little bit in the sb department - the only place he has the advantage over Pujols. The only thing that can hold Pujols back now would be injuries.

I drafted in 7 redraft leagues this year and DEFINITELY enjoyed ARod being valued higher by most people - I ended up with Pujols in 3 of the 7 leagues thanks to getting him with the #2 pick in 2 of them and the #1 pick in the other.

Don't want to sound mean, but you really should not be doing that.
