Pujols...

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Only 40 points AVG? If I'm not mistaken Pujols hit .359 last year and Soriano .290, essentially 70 pts different. Now I'll take those 50-70 points AVG (conservatively speaking with the 50) and 20-40 RBI over Soriano's 30-40 SB.

Bald Bull??? Wow that brings back some Mike Tyson Punch Out memories. That game rocked.

Definitely Pujols.

Super Macho Man was tougher to beat than tyson, IMO, except tyson had that one punch knock down.

I'd go with pujols, I worry about Soriano's plate discipline, a concept practically invented by pujols last year.

How do you spell "biased?"

Personally, I rank them Pujols, Soriano, Arod. Positions notwithstanding, Pujols outperforms the other two in everything but stolen bases. Soriano's average will be close enough to Arod's that his stolen bases will make a difference, but 40 sb's still won't push him past Pujols. YMMV. Soriano's new park may allow him to outhomer Arod, too.

Blankman,
Just being little facetious! But on other hand having been doing this for awhile (whenever CDMs second year was 190-92 I believe)
It often pays not to get caught up in hype of others and dig deep yourself.

I'm not sure how position elligibility works in your league. In my league, Soriano will be elligible at 2B.

If you can play him at 2B, I'd take him over Pujols. Texas is a much better hitters park for right-handers than Yankee Stadium. Here are Soriano's home/away splits last year:

Home:
.274, 52r, 42rbi, 15hr

Away:
.309, 62r, 49rbi, 23hr

11% higher average
16% more runs
14% more rbi
35% more hr

Give me Soriano and his 2B elligibilty/SB's
