Here's hoping that the Pujols deal makes for a very difficult contract situation in 5 years when Trout's looking at FA. Maybe, just maybe, the Cardinals can return the favor (afterall, would you hesitate to offer Trout the same 10-year deal that Pujols just signed? I don't think I would).
It would also be sweet poetic justice if somehow Yadi won the MVP since he got a portion of the Albert money starting next year. Also, many people questioned that contract but given how he performed this year, it could end up being a nice bargain.
