WE’RE BACK

At the request of Albert Pujols, The Daily Pujols was suspended during the season – no contract talks. But now we’re back with a vengeance. Not familiar?

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

The Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Goold asks – How will La Russa’s retirement affect Pujols decision?

Bryan Burwell follows up with some dreck about how it’s all the Cardinals’ (read: Bill DeWitt) fault that Pujols has reached free agency and he DEFINITELY wants to be in St. Louis. Because money doesn’t spend the same elsewhere. Especially when there is more of it.

National

Bloomberg has a blurb about Bodog’s betting odds that AP will wind up with the Cubs. “Favored” is a bit of a misleading headline, though, no? They’re betting odds, not real odds. Take heart, Pujols die-hards.

The Los Angeles Times’ Kevin Baxter says Pujols is leaning toward re-signing with the Cards and free agency is going to be boring. I’m confused.

David Eckstein thinks the new manager must be Jose Oquendo for Pujols to stay in St. Louis. (As told to Jon Morosi.)

Blogs

Big League Stew has a photo of Pujols being captured in a photo by Mark McGwire. “Hey, why not?”

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.
