who do you consider untouchable?

Obviously, Pujols seems untouchable when it comes to trades, but who would round out the top 5? Is Hafner there yet?

If the deal is right, no one is untouchable.

I don't consider anyone untouchable -not even Pujols. If someone wanted him badly enough, they could put together an offer that would force me to give him up. Reluctantly, of course.

That said, in keeping with the spirit of the question, Pronk isn't an untouchable. It'd take a lot, but as a guy who has eligibility only as a UT player, he can't be untouchable.

ARod is probably pretty close untouchable, although I've seen his name discussed regularly in trade talks on this board (by myself as well).

It comes down to need, and if you need something badly enough, you can put together a deal to get it.

There's not many deals I'd ship Pujols or Hafner away for in my H2H Keeper. I'm currently working on moving Ben Sheets for David Wright, though, and recently moved Utley and Vernon Wells for Johan and Matsui ;-)

In the various types of fantasy baseball, circumstances vary widely when considering whether somebody is untouchable.
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.
