How do Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder compare?

How do you size up some of baseball's biggest free-agent prizes?

Perhaps concerned he hadn't totally made his case as one of the biggest free agent prizes, Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols whacked three home runs in Game 3 of the World Series on the way to helping his team win their second championship in six years. But is he as smart a buy as Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder who is four years younger and whose on-base percentage is nearly 50 points higher?

Below you'll find some of the free agents that have owners and general managers salivating. Which players do you rank as the best buys?
