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…

Rochester (NY) Democrat and Chronicle thinks Miami is not, and will not be with Pujols, a baseball town. No word on whether or not that center-field home run motorized thing-y will make a difference in opinion.

So far, a poll at Lookout Landing (Mariners) has that site’s readers voting to not sign Pujols or Prince Fielder.
Tomahawk Take looks back at 2004 Albert Pujols. Er, kind of. Video game Pujols. It’s still fun to watch.
