The Pujols Move
Don't get me wrong. He's worth a lot. But would the Angels have ponied up that cash if they thought he'd do what he did last year (.299 / 37 / 99) for the next ten years? Those are great numbers, but not Pujols of old. And speaking of old... At his age, they're basically paying him for the next five years of production and would have to consider anything beyond that as gravy.
Of course, if he rebounds and gift wraps a couple of playoff appearances in the next couple of years, that mighht satisfy, no? I'll be interesting to watch. I'd love to see him return to form.
