Pujols for sure, I think the age difference is basically evened out by Fielder's body and they'll both start declining around the same time.

Pujols has already declined the last 2 years in OBA and slugging.
Too much is made of Fielders body. He never misses a game.
Fielder over Pujols.

I still take Pujols as well. Nice lineup. Should be steady for the next couple of years at least. Fielder going from Miller Park to Comerica could hurt his numbers a little. I've never been a big Fielder guy anyway.

I traded Fielder+Garza for Pujols+Buerhle in the middle of the 2010 season, and I've never looked back.

Pujols easily here.

I would have no complaints in drafting Pujols first overall in any league.

Gotta go Albert here. I would be concerned that Prince's size is eventually going to catch up to him and I simply don't see him playing past 32 and if he gets injured it just may take awhile for him to return.
