Age is a huge factor in a keeper league.

I'd go with the extra four years that Cabrera will give you. PLUS if he ever gets out of Florida then you'll see a bump in some already impressive #'s.

I voted Pujols - but if he didn't have a history of back problems I would have voted Vlad. If healthy, look for Vlad's sb numbers to go up and for him to become a true 5 cat stud again.

I vote Vlad as well. Pujols foot just seems to concern me a bit more than Vlad....but you really can't go wrong with either. I would also rate Beltran a clear 4th in this bonanza...overhyped and BA is suspect...

But it is a keeper league and speed can be fleeting as the years go by. If Beltran takes even a small hit to his SB totals he won't be as good as Pujols.

He still isn't, even if he steals 40 in my opinion. Albert will still hit 40 or so point higher in batting average, and have 20 more RBI's, negately Beltran's steals. Just my 2 cents

I completely agree. Pujols is my No. 1 followed closely by Vlad, then it's a huge fall off to A-Rod/Beltran/Tejada/etc. etc.
