    Smart move by the Cards to stay away from those type of numbers
    for a 31 year old player.

    Sucks but the Cards can go out and get probably 2 good players, maybe some pitching, for that money. Good luck to Pujols.

    Angels overpaid so they didn't lose out... again.

    The Angels will likely regret that deal during the last few years, although the DH could prolong his career and the attendance when he approaches career milestones won't hurt, either.

    Anyone else feel they made this deal knowing they wouldn't be paying him for all 10 years?

    Unless they trade him they don't have a choice. MLB contracts are guaranteed, unlike the NFL.

    I'm aware of the fact.

    I'm pretty sure he also got a no trade in the deal.

    Edit: yep, a full no trade.

    Angels also blow $75 Mil on CJ Wilson. (5 yr)

    $250m for a "31-year old". I'm guessing they're hoping for some of that Barry Bonds HR chase mojo towards the end like the Yankees with A-Rod's ridiculous deal.

    Then what are you asking?

    Are you suggesting he's going to retire before his contract is up? If I wanted to try to read minds I'd get married, again. :wink2:

    Allegedly. No way he's really only 31.

    327.5 million for 2 players? I have never understood the Angels, and I still don't. Pujols is obviously a great player, but this looks like the Rangers with ARoid to me.

    :groove2: Thank god, now he won't terrorize the Reds anymore. He belongs in the AL.

    The term "more money than sense" seems to apply here.

    Incredibly idiotic. Angels are going to be kicking themselves in 3-4 years. Add on overpaying for Wilson and this is just mind boggling...
