Also... What about the Cubs? Zambrano, Prior, Ramirez, Lee, Pierre... Two solid starters, two power hitters, and a SB guy

I would probably go with Toronto. Wells, Halladay, Glaus, Ryan, and Rios is a decent first 5. St. Louis would also be tempting just to get Pujols. Pujols, Rolen, Carpenter, Izzy and Edmonds would be decent enough to ensure having Pujols for many years.

8-o

You're picking the Jays for something.

8-o :-b

TB's top 5 could be good for the future. Kazmir, Crawford, Upton, Baldelli, Young (if you'de be able to keep him)

TORONTO? :-?

I'm not sure I would want Wells and Glaus as long term keepers and I'm not sure why everyone else would? I also would steer clear of AJ Burnett's bionic arm.



Something else to think about: on the whole closers are cheap, so why would you want to make them one of your 1st five?

The Cards may not be the deepest, fantasy-wise, but there's more than enough there to pleeeease me.

I'm on the side that would take the Cards just to get Pujols. Since the Twins are already taken, that is.

I'd take St. Louis but I don't think Cleveland or Toronto are bad options either.

Cardinals all the way. Best player in baseball, top 5 pitcher. Great third baseman.

Who cares who else you keep? You got Pujols!!! Trade him for Ortiz and Papelbon. :-D
