A Pujols owner and I have been tradsing emails.... Your thoughts on the latest table talks.... If not this, how else do I make it happen. Ubaldo has not been my choice pitcher, but he is slight in SP and I do not see him moving Sabathia. Caholl is his only other of interest. Strasburgh is of no use to me, and I would likely try to flip him immediately for a bottom feedign team playing for next season perhaps.
HE GIVES: Pujols, Ubaldo, Strasburg (DL)
I GIVE: Hamilton, Kimbrel, Rivera >>>> Willing to give Soto as he could use catcher somewhere as well

This is a tough one. Even though Pujols is the best player in the deal, I'm not entirely sure you come away with a decisive advantage here. Your team is definitely stacked as is...Prince Fielder is no bum. Do you feel like losing Hamilton in the outfield is worth picking up Pujols? Cause otherwise, Ubaldo has been terrible and you said you don't even want Strasburg.
Wow! Do you ever lose? You're team is absolutely stacked!! I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish here. Where will you play Pujols? You're gonna have to play him at the expense of either Youk, Longoria, or Prince. I like the idea of trading Hamilton and sliding Ellsbury into the OF, but unless you're gonna make another move I don't see the benefit. I'd be trying to land Victor Martinez or another upgrade at C. That seems to be your only weakness. And a small one at that.
you are getting Albert cheap enough you have to do it and as others mentioned you can trade someone else once you add albert

Anytime you can get Pujols for a relatively reasonable price I say do it. Hamilton is a small price to pay for Phat Albert and we don't even know if Riviera will pitch next year. Not sure why you want to deal Strasburg though...I'd rather have him then Rodriguez for next year
