Link: Albert Pujols to Phillies for Ryan Howard?

by on March 14, 2010 · 1 comment

So here goes the rumor mill that Cardinal fans, players, coaches, and executives will be dealing with until Albert Pujols is signed to a contract extension or ultimately set loose from St. Louis in some manner.

ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that a Phillies source told him the Phils have had internal discussions about making an offer to the Cards for Pujols, an offer including Ryan Howard.

Now, I doubt a guy like Olney would publish such a piece without someone “inside” the Phillies organization actually telling him such discussions had taken place. ┬áThat being said, don’t you think that EVERY team in MLB has a discussion at some point about what player or group of players it would take for them to pry Pujols away from the Redbirds?

I just don’t see any real news here – but unfortunately, I don’t think it stops without a resolution beyond 2011.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
