    Yeah, today. I've asked for it for almost a year now and noone replied back. Asked Shane this morning and he did it for me.

      But reports are that the two sides agreed on the length of a contract but were just really far apart on the money.

        Didn't see that. I have no idea what the Cards are doing then.

          • Cardinals never wanted to give Pujols a 10-year contract, the reports from the local news in St.louis was the Cardinals offered Pujols an 8-year deal worth more than 25 million per season, but not quite 30 million.

            I keep going back in forth on this one, Do I want to continue watching arguably a top 5 player baseball has ever seen help my favorite team win a championship? absolutely. But what kind of team are the Cardinals going to have if 30 million is going to one player, say goodbye to Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Yadier Molina, Jamie Garcia.

            Cardinals were getting ready for this day three years ago when they fired Walt Jocketty because of spending money to freely and hired John Mozeliak and his "build through the draft" philosophy.

              • some where between Mora, Allen, Nady, Miranda, Burroughs, Blum, Branyan there is a semi decent player, sadly 3 of them will be starting

                  Allen needs to be starting.

                    There is a 110% chance that ends up being a terrible contract at some point.

                      hopefully its Allen in LF and Miranda at 1B normally with days off vs lefties

                      • On MLB Network the guys were saying they offered Pujols a contract worth $21 million a year. Any truth to that?

                        • If I were Pujols and the Cards offered me that garbage I would end negotiations with them right then and there.

                            He is 30 years old(otherwise known as half Jose Tabatas age) which isn't too bad. If he is able to keep up his production from last year then it will be a fantastic contract

                              Has there ever been anyone in baseball who has done that. Lived in complete and absolute mediocrity (and thats being generous being a part time player), put together a dream season this far into his career and then was able to replicate it for another year or two, let alone 4 or 5?

                                I'll guarantee you he never hits 50 HRs again. Hell, I'll guarantee he doesn't hit 40 HRs ever again. Probably not even 30. He might get 20 once or twice though.
