There is no reason not to go all-in on Albert. At any time, he could go off and have a 4 HR/12 RBI week. You'll be happy if it happens when he's on your roster.

He's a z in my league and was being dumped - I tried to deal my $5b Ike Davis for him ... got beat out by the guy who had a $10b Mike Stanton to put on the table.

He's *the guy* on a team that's getting ready to dump ... and I'm in 3rd, feels do-able to move up if I can get an extra 10-15 HRs ... such as from Albert!

Any reason to not go all-in on Albert? (ie. make a bold/strong trade offer to get him)

His last couple of weeks his slash stats are 0.235/0.310/0.392 ... I don't want to trade a lot for more of *that*! I want some of that .350/.450/.650 feast!!! :-)

If he earns $44, in the crude world of 4x4 no one should complain. In 5x5 he's on a a pace to earn $40. No one should complain.

Just when everyone thought he was underperforming this year he puts together two tremendous weeks to finish off the first half. I'm not an NL guy, but I follow Pujols. How could I not? Sure his SLG and OBP are below his historical rates, but the first half is a small sample size and he could easily put together a monster second half getting back to where he has set his plateau. After all, he is leading in total bases and second in OPS+ so it's not all that bad a season so far.

I'm headed to the Cards/Astros game Thursday afternoon. (Hooray for half-price Internet tickets!) I hope to get a closer look at some folks while I'm there. Let me know if you have any requests on players to watch.

To add to Alex's comment: also if rebuilding push him as high as you can reasonably. If you get him, he's the perfect player to dump. High priced and 100% reliable as a stud.

If I had a good freeze list, yes. Otherwise no.

So would you push the bid to $44 tomorrow when another team has topper rights?

Over $40 7 of 8 years, and usually quite comfortably. I don't get the $35 bid.

The real question is how much over $40 you want to go with your investment?

The only thing that might make the $35 even moderately reasonable would be if you think the back is finally going to get him.
