LOLOL, that made me puke…..
I’ll say it again….. it’s always about the money!
Millionaire player screws millionaire owner to sign with different millionaire owner for more millions than the millions he was getting. Wow, how shocking.
These guys care as much about you, your team, and your city as they do about the weather on Mars.
Occupy Cooperstown if you still give a sh!t.
It may be hard to believe, but the deal may be a blessing for Cardinal fans. About five years from now, Albert will start to be a boat anchor and by the ninth year, the Angels will eat the rest of his contract. Here in Atlanta, I keep hoping that Chipper Jones will accept the fact that he is not helping the team by hanging around just to play two thirds of the schedule. The Braves can’t afford to dump him now and they are stuck waiting for him to go away.
As a resident of Wisconsin and fan of the Brewers I will gloat over Pujol’s departure, but only for a few days until Fielder leaves Milwaukee. Then I will share your pain.
The Cardinals and Brewers have developed a good rivalry of late… but we’ll still kick butt when it comes to the Brewers. 🙂
At first I was disappointed that the Cardinals for not dumping everything on him. But after thinking about it more I could not agree more with Richard. In 5 years the Cardinals won’t have a $25M/year cloud over their head. This is about having a successful team not just next year, but for the next 10 years. 7-8 years down the road it will be hard to justify the salary. There are only a few players that are as good at age 41 as they were at age 31. Nolan Ryan and Arthur Rhodes are 2 that come to mind.
Of course with the rate salaries are rising Pujols might be one of the lowest paid athletes in year 9 or 10.
