I was offered Geovany Soto, Johan Santana, and Kevin Gregg for Pujols. Pull the trigger?
Also, how should I go about getting rid of Big Papi? I don't have faith in him this year and still got stuck with him somehow... thanks.
10 team H2H each category:
C Ivan Rodriguez 1B Albert Pujols 2B Robinson Cano 3B Chipper Jones SS Derek Jeter 2B/SS Khalil Greene 1B/3B Paul Konerko OF Ichiro Suzuki OF Johnny Damon OF Jermaine Dye OF Brad Hawpe OF Adam Jones UTIL David Ortiz Bench Freddy Sanchez Bench (empty)
SP CC Sabathia SP Jon Lester SP Matt Garza SP Javier Vasquez SP Gil Meche RP Brad Lidge RP Heath Bell RP Huston Street RP Brad Ziegler RP Manny Corpas RP (DL) Trevor Hoffman
I would probably do that deal, maybe you can throw Ortiz in and get somebody else in addition to Soto (big upgrade over Pudge), Santana (makes your pitching staff great), and Gregg (decent addition to your closers)
I would say no to that deal. You are giving up the best player in the deal who happens to be a hitter. I value hitting over pitching...That may just be me... Gregg is a second/third tier closer who may not even be the cloer by years end. Soto is good but IMO catcher is the least important position in Fantasy. Santana is really good of course but I think you have enough pitching.
Keep the stud hitter, oh and I think Big Papi still has some left in him. I think he is still good for a .280 30 110 type season.

I would say definitely not. You already have a solid pitching staff so the addition of Santana would help but the loss of Pujols would hurt more. As far as Big Papi goes, I think you can expect a pretty big season out of him. I think he has at least 1 more good year left!
