Is this a keeper? I think this is about as high as a player a Pujols owner can get right now.

With that said, I'd do this deal. Pujols' track record is much to great to pass up on.

I tried something g else, first. I offered Hanley and Jason Motte for Pujols.

He declined and countered with Hanley and Robinson Cano for Pujols and CC Sabathia.

I've got Grienke, Bumgardner, Gio Gonzalez and Ervin Santana, so I'm feeling okay about my SP. Anyone think I should consider his counter?

This is a keeper. We keep four. Right now, my keepers are MCab, Votto, Cano and either HAnley or Jay Bruce.

Without seeing your full roster, I don't think I'd take his counter-offer... I like having the top-end players at shallow positions, and you'd be giving up 2 of them.

No to all these deals.

Votto is close to Pujols to begin with... with the uncertainty surrounding Pujols, why even do the deal to get a marginal upgrade at best?

The counter offer is definitely a no. Hanley and Cano are too valuable at shallow positions.

Help please
