Pujols, easily.

SS is not really that scarce of a position anymore.

But Hanley had a down year and was still put up a .300 avg, 21 HR, and 32 SB. I know that's not as good as Pujols, but for a 26 year old SS, in a down year, that's hard not to pick first.

You can still do alright by waiting and getting someone in the range of Reyes, Andrus, Jeter, Rollins. But all four of those guys are LEAGUES away from Tulowitzki and Hanley. Whereas, at 1B, guys like Fielder, Teixeira, Howard, Youkilis, or even guys that will drop down in the draft like Kendry Morales could all be possible candidates to put up Pujols-like numbers.

honestly, I would have a hard time not picking Pujols first. I'm still not sure what I would do. But I love arguing for Hanley just to play devil's advocate. Come and vote for Pujols, or Hanley if you change your mind, on my new blog. I'd love to see how the poll ends up. I've also got another poll (Carlos Gonzalez vs. Josh Hamilton in 2011), and you can comment on the 2 posts (on positional scarcity) that i've got up so far.

What I love is that every year there is the "Pujols or Player A" question. Every year Pujols does what he does and the next year someone else will put up some great numbers and we will ask Pujols or that guy. It has been going on for years now and every year the answer is always Pujols. Yes, Hanley had a down year and yes he has the ability to put up better numbers than Pujols but Pujols (who also had a down year) is as consistent as you can get. There might be a bigger drop off from Hanley to the next SS than there is between Pujols and 1B but at season end Pujols will still be at the top of the rankings. I would much rather have the consistency with my first pick.
