When is it OK to worry about Pujols?

Postby bodsquad » Sun Apr 29, 2012 1:08 pm

I am starting to worry about Pujols. I have him in my money league but, his lack of numbers are scaring me. I mean Kelly Johnson has better numbers than him. All of the experts seem to say he doesn't have a problem with his swing. He will start to heat up. We are almost to May and he does not have a HR and only has 4rbi's. OBP is also way down. I am starting to worry a little bit, but when do you try and trade the guy? June 1st, May 15th?

If you have another person who will pay FULL Value for him, you can trade him now. But only for Full Value. Will he hit for as much power as he has in the past? Maybe not. But he will hit.

Thanks. I think it is time to start floating. I hope he atleast starts hitting. I will have a hard time getting equal value, it is a contract league and I renewed his contract for the next 7 years. Not many players get locked up for 7 years. I was hoping for 5 good years and then trade him.

You can't trade him right now. If you do, you're selling at his absolute low point. He WILL (yes, WILL) come around, but don't expect the Albert Pujols of 2010 or prior.

Just temper your expectations of what he'll give you. He will hit.

This homer less streak has carried over from last year. He last hit a hr on Sept 22. That means hes gone 109 at bats with hitting a dinger. Yes in took Stanton until Sunday to get one.But he is only 22-23 ? Yes it took Votto three weeks to get his second but he is also only 28? The Angels as a team aren't playing well. He may be pressing more than we know or what he will admit. Or it could be something else? Hmmm. What could that be ? }:-)
