Re: Pujols Signs With the Angels

#95365 2 years, 8 months ago
Pujols is a hard nosed player who does love the game. The Angels made the best offer for his services and he took it. They are a team that is committed to winning. I do have to disagree with RB, that he is overpaid to play a game. I understand that $254M is mind boggiling to people. However, let me assure you : The owners of MLB teams are not dipping into their kids college funds, or eating hot dogs and Mac and cheese. These are billionaires. The players are who people come to see. They get what the market rate is. The players that make it to MLB level, are incredibly talented, but have to work hard 12 months a year.

OK, so now I'm starting to be bummed.

I believe it's not all about the money. I think the guy wants to be on a winning team. The Cards future is uncertain due to a new manager. The Angels seem to be definitely building to win.

It was just a lot of fun to have Pujols here, that's all.

Its ALL about the money and the Angels had the most so good for them and Albert. I was hoping his walk matched all his talk about being from the old school. Last time I checked the Cards beat The Tigers in 2006 so Albert has already won it all and St. Louis is a GREAT baseball town and will win again without Pujols. I guess I'm glad I'm not buying any Angel tix anytime soon as there will be an increase to the ticket buyers in Anaheim. Like I said, I hope he isn't in the lineup when the Angels play the Tigers.

40 million ain't chicken change.

The whole market is bigger. Better tv rights, bigger sponsorships, etc.

I'm just bummed at the thought of a summer without a very exciting player.

But, you're right Bob, its the Cardinals. We will win without him, or any one player, there's 9 guys on the field.

The Cards find a way to be good.

I am a White Sox fan so this hurts me two fold

A. We have to see Pujols several times a year for the next 10 years
B. The Cubs do not have to see him several times a year for the next ten years

Also, on a side note I can sympathize with you as we lost Mark Buehrle to Miami. Trust me I am equally as bummed about that as you are about Pujols

Bill, keep an eye on David Freese. He has the potential to be better than any Pujols.
