Howard would get the deal done. Proven guy and is gonna put up huge numbers like he always does.
Look at it from his point of view. If you were giving up Pujols and were going to replace him, which would you choose? Howard or Sanchez. I love Sanchez but it's only his 2nd year in the league and he plays in a hitters park.

It's going to take Howard with who you are looking to package.... And I'm not sure that gets it done, maybe a week ago, but the Pujols managers that stuck with him were waiting it out, and he has woke up. Now, those managers are going to once again look at him as the No 1 player in fantasy.
So basically between Howard and Sanchez you are saying keep Howard? I am going to offer Sanchez first to see if that can get it done. If he comes back with Howard then I will move Howard. What do you think?

You can offer Sanchez with that package, but like I said, I don't even think packaging Howard with those other players gets it done. You have to remember that the other team is going to need to drop two other players for this deal to happen.
I guess you could try your offer with Sanchez and a couple of your bench guys but why? I know some people think it never hurts to offer ANY deal but I think you risk Pujols owners slamming the door and never considering any of your future offers seriously. I'd never consider offering that package (even if it were Howard) for a guy who for all intents and purposes is the #1 player in the game. Maybe he's desperate for pitching and would buy high on Haren? If so packaging Haren and Howard won't be an embarrassing 1st offer. You could also try Beltre and howard. Doubt either deal gets accepted but at least he'll know you want to trade seriously.
Both Pujols and Howard have been dealt several times in our league this year. It's a 12T roto keeper so I'm not sure the valuations translate to your league or not? I'll include transaction dates as player value perceptions evolve as seasons progress.
Pujols deals (all were settled with Albert in the midst of a longterm slump): APR 22 - Pujols for Josh Johnson Kendry Delmon and K-Rod (refer to date, JJ was healthy and Morales looked to be on road to return) May 4 - Pujols Beltran and Asdrubal for Hanley Lind Adam Jones May 5 - Pujols Fred Sanchez and Mike Adams for CarGo Shields Prado May 27 - Pujols Longoria Felix and Stubbs for Miggy Cargo Haren McGhee and Raijai
Howard deals: APR 5 - Howard Infante and Bumgarner for Cruz Rollins and Contreras APR 8 - Howard Kendrick and Bell for Kinsler McCann Ike Davis and Dom Brown (special keep rules for rooks) APR 21 - Howard and jaime Garcia for Josh Johnson and Kendy (see date reference above)
Unfortunately they weren't ever in the same trade and infact none of the Pujols trading even started until the assets from Howard's final deal was part of the package that convinced Albert's first owner to move him. I see this as a good sign for your chances.
