I would take Utley over Soriano in RFK.

Pujols has been my #1 easy the last 3 years. Arod earned more last year, but that was because of the high sb.

Edited for the sake of controversy.

Also, more importantly, is this week going to be the week that Chris Shelton's ESPN player card unseats the Chris Shelton Apprentice discussion on top of the google results?

No, Alex Rodriguez will have more RBIs because of the 2 best leadoff hitters in the AL that are batting in front of him.

Pujols is a better hitter than ARod. There are obviously other things that ARod does better, but, overall, it's awfully close. I would want Pujols over ARod if I was fortunate enough to be given the choice.

Not that this would ever happen but imagine Pujols going to the Bronx and hitting 3rd for the Yankees. With his talent he could easily put up 140r and 140rbi. Scary scary thought.

What's up with you and judging players solely by RBI totals? 8-o

Having both of them on one team is toooo dirty.


I have Pujols, Vlad, and David Wright in a league where we keep 5 keepers every year.

I took Pujols with the #1 pick in our deep roster league and would take him over ARod every time, Pujols just has more upside.

err... uhh... you know he isn't in Texas or New York anymore right? He's in Washington? What year is it for you? How many HR do you think he hit last year? What was his BA? How many SB did he steal? If you think he hit.290 with 40 HR and 40SB... then you are thinking of the wrong year.... and if you think he'll do that in RFK this year... can I have some of what you are on?

Cute. I forgot Pujols has a track record of being a superstar, and in 4 months Chris Shelton will be on most waiver wires.
