The Daily Pujols – 01.28.2011

by on January 28, 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…

Local

Viva El Birdos outlines the blueprint for the Cardinals to follow when Pujols departs via free agency.  (Yes, it’s tongue-in-cheek.)

Wally Spiers wants to rename Busch III for Pujols.  Wally says:

Busch Stadium? That family sold the team. Why are we honoring their name?

An undisclosed sum of cash buys plenty of honor, Wally.

National

Bloomberg BusinessWeek says that Albert Pujols is the ninth most powerful athlete in the United States.  He is the top MLB player on the list.  Eat your heart out, Alex Rodriguez.

Blogs

Yes, the Cubs have big contracts coming off the books soon.  Mike Metzger at I-70 Baseball thinks they’re willing to spend it on AP.

Rich at the SportsNickel.com says in a mailbag response to throw as much money as you can at Pujols and see if it sticks.  Oh, and St. Louis deserves Pujols. That’s nice of him.

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.
