Beltran or Pujols

Yeah Pujoles is still the second best hitter in the league, but this year he won't have a better average then Beltran. Beltran's will be around 330-335 and Pujols will be around 315 in my opinion.

8-o

Did you just pick those numbers out of the air? Pujols his .359 last year what makes you think he'll drop 45 BA points? Beltran will be a ~.310 hitter. I'd bet my avatar that Pujols will have a better BA. But I already have my av wagered with Erboes, so I can't put that valuable piece of real estate in the pot.

I agree it's a tough call. I'd probably take Pujols in a redraft and Beltran in a dynasty league. Next year when Beltran ends up with a team like the Yankees he is going to be even better.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Steals are more a commodity than most see (IMO) I like Beltran a little better simply on that fact. I will take 5 cats over great power most of the time.

And yes, in a keeper or Dynasty i would take Beltran even more over, with his contract coming to an end and all.

OK this may help:
8 man keeper league. I have podsednik already, so SB isnt a major concern. I am in need of help in the power hitting areas. SLG, RBI, HR...stuff like that, my average is mediocre. My other OFs are:
L Gonzalez
Matsui
V Wells
C Lee
Dye
Podsednik
R White

honestly, it depends on WHEN you are asking the question ...

Like If I had the number one pick going into this year, I go arod. BUT

If I knew in advance that I would have solid ss option, then I go pujols.

Much like now. If you have a huge basestealing threat, then I think you go pujols. But if you don't know, then I think it has to be beltran. Do you want a heck of a lot of four, or a lot of five? that is really the choice here.

I honestly had my rankings arod, beltran, pujols, soraino this year. people may call me crazy, but five cat is five cat. Imagine a pitcher who gets wins and saves, how much would he go for?

Well, beltran is basically that, except steals are a bit more plentiful than saves. if beltran goes 40 40 or even 35 40, this is moot, has to be beltran.

Ooh. That complicates things. Without a situation, I would personally go Beltran. But you have Pods, so steals arent a problem. Then again, its a keeper, and Beltran will be better than Pujols in the long run, especially if he goes to a better team. I say try to package Pujols and maybe Pods for Beltran and a power guy. That evens out the SB and the power, and gets you Beltran who will be better in the end.
