Report: Pujols wants A-Rod money

10 Comments

Jon Heyman tweets that Albert Pujols — who’s meeting with the Cardinals today — reportedly wants “A-Rod money.”

To which I’d say if I were the Cardinals: done. Here: take your ten-years and $275 million and we’ll see you in spring training. Really, even if A-Rod’s contract was an overpay at the time, it’s difficult to argue that Pujols doesn’t deserve that.  Indeed, if he hit the market, I suspect at least a couple of other teams would pay it.

The speculation is that the Cards want this done by Christmas.  If $27 million a year is what Pujols wants, it could be done before Hanukkah is over.
