I have been offered

If you can get Pujols for that, especially if you aren't even considering keeping the players you are trading away you do it......... If this was proposed to you, do it now before the other team changes their mind. If you are thinking about proposing this, I don't see this getting accepted.

Hit the accept button as quick as you can. Pujols is still one of the top keepers in the league and you use enough positions that having top 1B doesn't really matter.

I'd be interested in knowing the following:

Who are your 3 (and also 4) keepers BEFORE this trade?

Who are your 3 (and also 4) keepers AFTER this trade?

Just curious.

Good question!!



3 keepers BEFORE trade are Braun, Hanley, A. Gonzalez
3 keepers AFTER trade would be Braun, A. Gonz, and I'd prob flip a coin between Pujols and Hanley


4 keepers BEFORE trade would be Braun, Hanley, A. Gonz, A-Rod
4 keepers AFTER trade would be Braun, Hanley, A. Gonz, Pujols


I think either way, I'm looking good for keepers. Though, I'd be looking a bit better if we go to 4 keepers AND I do this trade.

Since you have no plans for holding on to Hanson, then this deal is a no-brainer.
