Verlander for Pujols

Postby BigBilly » Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:10 pm

I have been offered Verlander for Pujols, I feel like i'm in good shape offensively and weak in SP..I play in a 16 team 5x5 7 player keeper which my keepers look like this

Braun
Hamilton
Pujols
Kinsler
Hanley
C. Santana
Wainwright

Would I be getting fair value for Albert here, or would I be best to sit tight??

NO, declive the trade. Yes you are strong offensively and that is what you want. Now take 3 of your next 4 picks and load up on SP's. Albert is a concensus top 7 pick and Verlander is more of a 8-15 pick. The "Experts" have been preaching, "Do not over reach on SP's" for years.

In certain leagues Verlander paces all in scoring (in pitchign friendly leagues) but in standard play you definitely keep Pujols. I mean Verlander+a good 1b like a Craig or Freeman or someone would make me consider it..
