Since April 27th:
ARod: 59/185 (.319), 44 Rs, 13 HRs, 41 RBIs, 7 SBs
Pujols: 59/179 (.330), 32 Rs, 11 HRs, 33 RBIs, SB
Pretty close, but even since we've put this discussion down, ARod has still been the better hitter (whether a product of his surroundings or not, still a better fantasy player.) Still plenty of season left, but my money's still on ARod
better fantasy player yes, "better hitter" i'm not sure. but i think i said that from april 27th arod will be a better fantasy player, so you're (for lack of a better word) "winning" so far. but i still think pujols will win out in the end. guess we'll just have to see.
Arod and Pujols may switch back and forth between better hitter but Arod is the better all around player
in real life? yeah. but that's not what we bet on.
