No Craig is a bad 1B and to say he's better than Pujols is the joke of the year. This year Craig was a -3 runs saved at 1st and a -3.4 UZR/150. Pujols was a +8 this year and a +134 in his career with a career high of +31 RS in a season at 1st and a +7.3 UZR/150 this year.
The only reason Craig is at 1st is because that the opening due to Berkman, he's a DH finding a spot in the NL.
