Didn't St.Louis offer him a 10 year deal but it was less than what the Angels were gonna give him? Then the Angels also have the DH so he could play into his forties. f*ck the DH

I still believe he went to the Angels intending to become a full time DH when he got too old to play in the field. Plus they offered him more money. You can't blame him for leaving. But with how salty Cards fans are about it I bet they don't even want him to wear a Cards logo in Cooperstown

yeah because we didn't offer him much less.

the deals were pretty similar.

 

Albert sold out for the money because he believed his career wasn't justified unless (at some point) he was the highest paid player in the game. he didn't go to LA because it was a superior franchise with a brighter future. he may have assumed that the Hollywood spotlight would do more to help grow his own organization and charities, but it was clearly more about the money than anything else.

 

the DH shouldn't exist, anyhow. it's a retarded 'position.'

pinch hitting already exists. we don't need 2 different rules in 2 leagues. if you're too old to keep playing then GTFO of the way for someone younger who is coming up.

It's less than 5% more in California than in Missouri.

 

http://www.espn.com/...h-240m-10-years

 

$240 million dollars (over $40 million more than St Louis offered)

four season tickets to home games over the next decade

A hotel suite on road trips.

A luxury suite at the ballpark for the Pujols Foundation, his charitable group, for 10 home games a year.

The right to buy a luxury suite between first base and third base for all home games.

 

Take it as you want lol

It's possible he could earn almost $270mil in 20 years (from the signing date, so less years to go!)

 

 

I'll take whichever contract lol

Figures that the NL West is strong when the Rockies are lighting it up.

 

They (Rockies Dodgers DBacks) would be leading every division but one. 2 3 and 4th best record.

 

 

Rockies just need to keep winning and win the Division because one of the other teams won't make the playoffs because of the dumb 1 playoff game play-in.
