What's Pujols Value for next year?

Postby perlick29 » Sun Jun 20, 2004 11:53 pm

Obviously he's one of the premier hitters in th game but I just realized he may not qualify for OF in yahoo next year. Maybe his value will dip ever so slighty and guys like helton and thome get more value. I know his name is Albert Pujols, a marvelous hitter, but is he still a top 2 pick next year? What do you guys think and why?

I can't see a prob if he's doesn't qulaify for OF. Outfielders are a dime a dozen. Just hope he qualifies at 3B. Number 1 and 2 picks next year could be 3B.

3B..? Where did you get that idea? I don't think he'll get Any time there with Rolen, so just mark him down for 1B. It'll basically be a 3-sided coin flip between Pujols, A-rod and Vlad. I guess it will depend on how they fare for the rest of the season, and injury worries, if any.

i can definetly see his value dropping ever so slightly. Few players still have the raw ability to mash like him. I remember a couple weeks back everyone was like, "man what is wrong with Pujols?" Then the few days he goes on like a 4 homerun tear and raises his average like 20 points. Very few have the ability to do that.

Than being said, I think Helton is a very similar player to him now. That could drop him to mid-first round, unless he exibits more power than Helton. It also depends on how Abreu, Beltran and others finish the season. Before Beltran's slump people were mentioning him in the top 3. :-?

true helton is a mid first rounder, but pujols will be the #1 player in baseball drafts in over 50% of the drafts next year.......

Exactly...plus the risk Helton's bad back is enough to drop him about 7-8 spots in the draft for next year in my opinion.

I posted this because if he loses dual eligibilty he might lose some value. Compare him Thome and Helton to each other at the end of the year and it might be found that these 3 have the same type of stats. Pujols is of course great but may lose a bit of value next year.
