Who would you rather have if offered both with an identical contract (say 9-yr/$22M), Fielder or Pujols?
Before anyone jumps down my throat, think about it. Pujols is declining, his peripherals are getting worse. He is chasing more pitches, taking less walks. Fielder OTOH, is as good as Pujols right now and is in his peak with 2-4 years of the peak left. The only question about him is how he will age given his body type. A similar question can be posed toward Pujols, given a slight uncertainty about his age and the fact that is looks as if he might be aging early which, along with his early peak, raises questions.
I honestly don't know which I would prefer. I leave it to the collective intelligence of CC.
