Pujols Trade

Postby pungent » Wed May 09, 2012 4:59 pm

Hey guys, just was offered this today. Curious to see some other thoughts. I've already made up my mind and declined, but would like to see some opinions.

Receive: Carlos Santana

Send: Albert Pujols

How far off do you see this trade in a 16 team dynasty?

League info:
16 Team Dynasty 32 man roster 25 Keepers
HR R RBI SB TB K AVG OPS
W QS K SV ERA WHIP

Also, what do you think about my counter;

Send: Pujols, Choo, Hellickson

Receive: Santana, J Up, Duda.

Not of the fan of the straight up trade at all. At all.

But I do like your counter. I definitely think that's a great trade.

I like the counter, but there is no way I do the first one. Pujols will go on a tear eventually and you'll be sorry you did that one. You are getting value in the second deal.

I'm not sure if I would even do your counter, and I certainly wouldnt do the first deal. I like both Carlos Santana and Justin Upton, but I'm not sure if i would trade Pujols at all right now.

Thanks for the replies folks!

Well, like I said I rejected the offer for Carols straight up and the owner rejected my counter.

It appears we value our players differently.

I personally think a bad Pujols year is still greater than an great year from Santana. Just my opinion...
