Good Luck Pujols and Thanks For The Memories

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Chesterfield

Albert Pujols spent eleven spectacular seasons as a St. Louis Cardinal.  Yesterday, it was announced that Pujols had signed a 10 year, $254 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels.  It is the second largest contract in baseball history, behind the 10-year, $275 million deal Alex Rodriguez signed with the Yankees before the 2008 season.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney the Cardinals offer to Pujols was for nine years and "slightly more than $200 million."

Fans of Cardinal nation are mad at Pujols.  This is a guy who publicly said that he wanted to retire as a Cardinal, he loved St. Louis, he loved the Cardinal fans and it isn't about the money, it is about winning. In the end, it was all about the money. 

I believe the Cardinals organization did all they could do to keep Albert.  I'm proud of the Cardinal's organization for stepping away and not spending all of their money on one player.  Pujols just opened up millions of dollars for the Cardinals to spend on other players.  They can hire players to fix those weak spots on the field.  

Good luck in LA Pujols and thanks for the memories.  Call me if you need a GREAT real estate agent to get your St. Louis home sold.

Good to see that the Cardinals did not spend the money like the Angels. In the end the Cardinals will be better off for it.

I think so too.  We just have to get over the initial shock and move on.
