Maybe you can get someone younger who's not quite as good but will be productive over the next 6-8 years. I mean, I would certainly swap him with Wright in that trade to get Stanton and Stras if it pushes it over the edge.
While I've considered moving Pujols, I wouldn't do it for a pitcher and an outfielder. I think you have to factor in positional scarcity when evaluating this option. There are a LOT more OF & SP available than quality 1B options. Pair that with the fact that I already have the two best outfielders and that I could possibly fill my third OF spot in the 10th round or later, I don't think this would be a good idea.
