Votto for Pujols?

Postby aerrico » Tue May 01, 2012 12:07 am

Would you guys pull the trigger on trading Joey Votto for Pujols straight up in a 6x6 league including OPS as an offensive category?

Right now...no.

Pujols should be fine, but then again maybe he is pulling a 2011 Crawford on everyone.

No, I don't think I would do that. If both players simply repeat last year's numbers, then I would still want Votto over Pujols. Keep in mind that Votto's OBP and OPS is basically right in the same neighborhood as what Pujols would normally give. I still think Pujols will get it turned around and turn in a very good year but I don't think it is going to be 35 hr/120 rbi good. I think Votto is the safer bet at this point.

They are similar sorts of players when on, including OPS. Given that they are similar sorts of players when on, give me the guy showing life. I'd stick with Votto.

Right! Stick with Votto. Guys that get big contracts sometimes lose themselves the following year. Stay with what's working. Pujols could come out of it, but might just have an off year (as he is so far). We just don't know, and it's not worth it.

Help?

Thanks for the advice guys. I didn't crunch the numbers and see how close Votto and Pujols are in value (even in SB).

Going to stick with the younger, more comfortable player here.
