Re: The Albert Pujols Saga

Yeah, I really don't see any way Pujols leaves. This is just typical business stuff.

I don't think there's any other team that's going to throw 300 mil at him.

I can see the Cubs being stupid and throwing whatever it takes to get Pujols until he is 40. I don't like it, but Jim Hendry is stupid. Soriano part ii.

Re: The Albert Pujols Saga

Pujols' last contract offer from what I've heard was 8 yrs worth over $200M(ballpark was around $220 I believe), which would put him at around $25M a year.

While they say that no negotiations will take place, I guarantee that STL is working on it and will bend the ear of Pujols' agent throughout the course of the season.

And before all is said and done, he'll be a Cardinal.

That's what I thought when I was twelve.
There is no way that The Franchise could be anything but a Metropolitan.

I think Albert is as good as gone, according to Ken Rosenthal our last offer to him was between 19-21 mil per year, that is a pathetic offer.

Albert can and will get more elsewhere, I just hope it isn't from the Cubs but realistically thats what I expect will happen.

I'm not entirely opposed to letting him walk, I would prefer to keep him but if he truly wants 10 years he needs to find it elsewhere otherwise we'll be the Giants with only Bonds all over again.

Re: The Albert Pujols Saga

When you really stop and look at it there are not too many options for Albert outside of St.Louis.

The Yankees: if C.C. opts out of his contract at seasons end (doubt he will but he said he hasn't ruled it out) the Yanks will be down another starting pitcher, thus have to throw a lot of money in that direction. It's also doubtfull that Pujols would sign with a AL team to be a DH or that Teixeira would want to be one either. But they are the Yankees and you can't rule them out.

The Red Sox: will likely have $170+ million comitted to Adrian Gonzalez by seasons end and like the Yankee situation would have to have either Pujols DH or Adrian. But like the Yankees, you can't rule them out.

The Mets: even with a ton of money coming off the books the Mets may not have many coins to rub together after the Madoff Ponzi scheme is ruled on.

The Angels: paid a lot (a lot) of money to get Vernon Wells. Moreno has the money to make something happen but not sure if he would go that high.

The Dodgers: unless the McCourt's are forced to sell they can't afford him.

The Phillies have a ton of money tied up with Ryan Howard.

The Nationals: Have money to spend but Albert probably wouldn't sign with Washington.

The Orioles: Angelos has the money but good luck getting him to spend it.

The Cubs: would have to be the most logical team, but do they have that kind of money and would Albert want to go to a team that is not a consistant contender?.
