I think you gotta go with the Pujols side of this deal. He's gotta come back to life at some point. If he does, he is way more valuable than Dunn+Napoli.

Don't you think Dunn/Napoli is more production than Pujols/Lucroy? Plus a huge upgrade at closer for the Dunn side.

Thanks for the help with mine. I agree with the first response. Dunn is still sucking horribly against LHP, but is making it up by absolutely crushing RHP. I don't think he keeps that up and if he doesn't improve against LHP he will regress. In addition Pujols' stock is as low as it can go. I would hold until he starts hitting a little better (there is no way he hits below 200 even if he never resembles the Pujols of old again). Wait till he gets hot and then if you want to sell him get a little more back. That's what I would do anyways.

I would go with side B in a vacuum. Dunn/Napoli/Jansen youre getting a top 5 catcher top 5 closer and if he is the normal Adam Dunn a top 10 1B. If Pujols returns to form I would still take side B. Dunn will put up about the same as Pujols HR wise RBI and Runs should be fairly close. Pujols is really only favored in average. Napoli is leaps and bounds above Lucroy in just about every category same with Jansen over Fuentes he could be Kimbrel like with the Ks
