The Daily Pujols – 01.26.2011

by on January 26, 2011 · 1 comment

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between local, national, and blog coverage, maybe you’ll find something here you otherwise wouldn’t. Without further delay, here is today’s Daily Pujols…


The Springfield News-Leader ran R.B. Fallstrom’s AP article recapping the Winter Warm-Up events, rehashing the deadline chatter, etc.

The Post-Dispatch ran Joe Strauss’ thorough recap of what is known, what has been assumed and projected onto the situation, and where we stand now – which, not surprisingly, is about where we stood weeks ago.

Perspective, courtesy of Jeff Gordon at the P-D. expands on why age questions persist surrounding Pujols, as mentioned in yesterday’s Daily Pujols.


Mark Miller at Yahoo! picked up on the “yet to reach a higher gear” and rumored “10-year, $300 million framework” elements in Strauss’ column.

Blogs reminds us that with free agency pending, there really is no motivation for Albert Pujols to waive his five-and-ten rights to block a trade.


Have more Pujols links to share?  Post them in the comments below!

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.
