"Sure, the Dodgers could always trade for Pujols and make him their new shortstop/no. 3 starter/clubhouse attendant."

I love Grantland

I agree with all of those up until it got to around the top 5. The problem is Vernon Wells is number 5? Even if Crawford turns out to be as bad as he was in Boston, he's still not getting paid as much as Wells who is a healthy bench player at this point, and only getting paid a few million less than A-rod. And yeah we have him for the next 5 years, but the Angels already had Wells for 2 or 3 years, and they'll have him for another 2. Both Wells and Crawford are far worst than Werth or Howard.

Also I don't understand the Jayson Werth argument when Pujols ending money will be far worst than Jayson's and possibly even A-rod.
