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).
I think the Pujols deal will go down as one of the worst in baseball history. The fact that Trout (deservedly) gets all the attention while Pujols is basically invisible on a national level is great. No All Star Game, no playoffs. He did get his money, but at least it wasn't Cardinals money.
WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU ALFRED!
