Yup, I'm starting to agree with this thought as well!
mark me down as agreeing as well..
I get what you guys are saying, but if there is one person in baseball these days that is capable of hitting .350, hitting 60 jacks, and single-handedly leading your fantasy team to victory, it is the 27-year old Pujols. Plus, the downside to him is still really high. I'd take him #2 and only because I thought I could trade A-Rod for him and something else.
I just wish for Pujols' sake that the Cards could get one more decent hitter.
