Pujols to the Angels ($250 million for 10 years)

Recommended Posts

I am a hugh Cardinal fan and am not as upset about the move as I thought I would be. First I think this type of money would have hurt the Cards in the long term. Sure we keep him now but what about trying to stay competitive a few years from now? Second and you may call me crazy but I think we have already seen Alberts best years. This past seasons early struggles worried me a bit and he may be ready to start the slow decline. Will there be some great years ahead? Sure but I also wouldn't be at all surprised to see some duds sprinkled in as well.

I will miss Pujols but for the money I think the Cardinals are more likely to be a better team long term by letting him go.

I wish the Cardinals had tried to lock him up 2 years ago, but oh well.

I"d be pissed if I were Pujols. ARod got better deals back in '01 and in '08...

Jebus, baseball players make a lot of money. CJ2K had to hold out to get 35 mil. Pujohls gets 250mil. :wacko:

 

They have 81 home games per year in baseball vs. 8 home games in football. Lots extra seats being sold = more money to spend.

I was thinking back on this thread this morning while looking over the standings. Great deal for both Pujols and the Cardinals. The Angels? Not so much!
