Cards fan here too. (or pending the Pojols outcome) They may have to give him the Arch, but if they let him go, there may be a lynching in St.Louis:mad2:

My wife's family are die-hard Cardinal fans. I caught myself rooting for them in the Series.

I'm definitely a Cardinals fan and live about 50 miles from Busch Stadium. I hope we hear some good news about Pujols soon.

Here in Evansville, In. we have a house where they painted the roof up like the cardinals logo. Pretty impressive (or obsessive).

:rolleyes: Looks like we're finally down to the last 24hrs before Alberts' decision. The Marlins are offering the bank, so we'll see. I've always wondered what can you do with $200 million, that you can't do with $160 million?--LeeB

Pujols is going to the...bank with a smile on his face.

I think the Cardinals would be overpaying him based strictly on performance during his decline years, which might hamstring payroll down the road, but they're also bidding to ensure his legacy as a lifetime Cardinal. Mixed feels really.

I know I could have a lot of fun expanding my GT collection with about 0.01% of what Albert is about to be paid.

So Pujols took the highest offer and is headed to the Angels. A 10-year contract with full no-trade clause and $250mil. That is a horrendous contract and I'm glad the Cards didn't try to match it.

Cory,
I agree. He's 31, if one is to believe him, though he looked a lot older as a rookie than 21. At 31, he has maybe 6 or 7 prime years left, if that. For any team to give him a 10 year contract at age 31 is stupid. I wish him luck, but he said he wanted to be like Stan the Man Musial, who actually requested a pay cut when he didn't perform up to his normal standards and was a legacy Cardinal. Albert followed the money for all his talk.
