    10 years for a 31 year old player?

    Re: Albert Pujols signs with Angels

    First thought is that it's quite an aggressive deal, especially for a guy who's 31 already. 25 million a year. Jesus.

    But given the fact that the dude has been a machine for EVERY year he's been in the league, it's worth the risk. Surprised he didn't go to Miami though, seeing as that's the hot spot for virtually every athlete these days.

    edit- Shane Battier just signed with the Heat

    Don't see the Card's repeating as champs this year now. Hopefully he does well with the Angels.

    This winter is all about the Marlins and Angels now.

    I'm shocked that Pujols signed with a team other than the Cards. But then again, like every player, it is all about the money.

    I think it'd be funny if he went to the Rangers to counteract what the Angels have done.

    If he doesn't sign with the Cubs (which I don't think he will) then going to the Rangers or any AL team would be best. Then we get the two biggest sluggers out of the NL and the NL Central.

    Pujols turned down a higher offer from the (tax free) Marlins

    Pujols received ten years and around $255MM from the Angels, but Bob Nightengale of USA Today says the Marlins offered ten years and $275MM. He says that with incentives and Florida's lack of a state income tax, the deal could have been worth nearly $300MM.

    Marlins also had a higher bid for Wilson, but CJ wanted to play in Cali.

    This deal is insane but if anyone deserves it, it would be Pujols. Best player I have ever seen.

    Prince Fielder must be licking his chops right now.

    Re: Albert Pujols signs with Angels

    Yeah I heard the news, crazy the Cards must be pissed, but they gave Pujols a hell of a deal! He might be fine money wise, but were the Angels in great position to make it to the World Series before he was signed? No? Fielder should go to a contender might these guys would rather loads and loads of money for teams that don't do anywhere.If the team doesn't perform it will be hard to pay him.I heard on the radio, that the Cardinals might want Jimmy Rollins, but reports are saying he will resign with the Phils.Well the Cardinals need to do something!

    No, that's just a number Pujols' team is throwing around to make him sound less greedy. The Marlins final offer was $201 million.
