Bumgarner for Pujols is too much? I'd trade just about any pitcher in the league for Albert. He may not be what he once was, but he's still one of the top sluggers in the league. Oh ... and you have Michael Cuddyer playing 1st base. You'd be a fool to decline.

I would make that trade anytime, Puljos has been heating up recently and there is nothing to suggest that he wont keep it up. You can always play using pitching matchups, but getting a hitter like pujols is a great deal in my opinion.

Funny how a slow start turns people off...no worries though.

Pujols is one of the top 5 players in the game. Is Bumgarner worth that? I think so...

The mantra I follow is: don't trade hitting for pitching.

There are always gonna be quality starting pitchers on the wire, and even if you feel they aren't rosterable, you can leave a roster spot open to stream them when there are good matchups.

Pujols for a single pitcher should never be denied, in my opinion, even if said pitcher is Justin Verlander. Quality hitters are hard to come by.

Good trade for you though! Good luck with the awesome new player!

You didn't really give any information about your league scoring or how deep the league is. That being said, unless there are some extreme circumstances here (like a 20 team points league or something), you make this deal EVERY day of the week. As was posted above, trading pitching for hitting is one of the best ways to pick up value in fantasy. Frankly, there is no reason to be reluctant to give up starting pitching as there are surely a million starting pitchers on the waiver wire and you can stream for matchups.

I would trade Madison Bumgarner straight up for someone like Matt Holliday, Adrian Beltre, etc. in a 5x5 10 team league, let alone Albert Pujols.

Thanks for the feedback, should be a done deal.

I see you are a Kershaw fan, would you trade Kersh for Pujols as well?

I wish I played in this league. I would give any pitcher straight up for Pujols and I wouldn't care about need or roster. I wouldn't even think about it
