In an NL-only league, Pujols is as close to untouchable as it comes. The big factor there, especially in roto leagues, is that most other owners could not part with enough (numerous players??) to negotiate a decent trade and still expect to remain immediatly competititve. Building for the future is another issue.
And yes, if you could get two studs (and maybe a prospect) for Pujols, that's understandable.
This I agree with. I think that in an NL-only, Pujols is untradeable during the season. Offseason, however, in a keeper, is an entirely different story. I'm already trying to formulate my offseason offer to Pujols' owner in our keeper league. He doesn't have a strong set of keepers beyond Albert, so I think a 2 or 3 for 1 will make sense for both teams. I'd never do that during the season though.
