It's really not as simple as that.
You have to calculate Pujuls value and the value of the others guys in the trade.
I.e. I'd calculate Pujols net value based on how much he would go for in this years draft. I'm guessing he'd go in the $50-55 range? Let's call it $53, for a net value of $11.
Sandoval might go for $25-30? for a value of $24
Rasmus might go for $15 for a value for $14
Sandoval and Rasmus together has a value of $28 compared to Pujols $11.
So imo, it really comes down to how good your current keeper list is but I personally love Sandoval (at a more scarce position) and Rasmus should improve so it's not clear-cut for me.
