Pujols Signs With the Angels

#95176 2 years, 7 months ago
It was fun while it lasted.

10 years for 250-260 mIllion, no trade, DH in the future.

Was hoping he would remain a Cardinal until the day he retired, but I guess you follow the money trail. The DH is a good deal though, little risky investing that much money in anyone as they get older.
Pujols is a monster though.
I loved how he refused to talk to the press. No trash talking from his end. He's one of the few.

Also the got CJ Willson today for $77M also. OS, do you think he wanted out of STL ? My thought is that maybe with LaRussa retiring, it was his way out.

Larussa retiring may be part of the problem. Albert wants to be on a winning team. The Cardinals have a rookie manager and could expect some slow seasons. The A's are building to win.

Plus, there's always the money.

The difference is 40 plus mil over what the Cards offered.

That's a lot of money.

I am actually sad as I thought Albert was a throwback player who played for the love of the game and his team but greed wins again. I feel Albert had a chance to elevate to Stan Musial status by staying with the Cards, now he will be another great modern day player who was overpaid to play a game ( A-Rod ) and then went for the most cash when he could. Best of Luck Albert unless you play Detroit!:

I agree Bob. He played it uP like he was a throwback,.

He is still looking to win though, and the Angels seem to be the place
To be.

it sux for cards fans but it could be worse... you could be a Pirates fan. Barry Bonds was a Pirate. Aramis Ramirez was a pirate. Bobby Bonilla was a pirate. Its all about the $$$$$$$$$$. The only positive out of this is I hope they kick the Yankees ass every year. As long as they don't win I am (somewhat) happy. Grasping at straws butits all you can do when you have a AAA farm team that develops players & stocks all other teams.

Very Good points friends. It is also hard to DH in the National League. Hopefully Albert will be out of the lineup when the Angels roll thru Detroit. The tTgers couldn't handle the Rangers last year, 2012 will be tough for them to beat the Angels in the playoffs if they get that far. I wonder how much tickets are going up in Anaheim??
