Albert Pujols Signs With Angels
December 8, 2011 by staff
Albert Pujols Signs With Angels, The Los Angeles Angels are the winner in the bidding for Albert Pujols, according to a Yahoo report. Pujols, who will turn 32 in January, has agreed to a 10-year deal worth $250 million.
The Miami Marlins had fallen out of the running Thursday and the St. Louis Cardinals came at their free agent with an impressive offer, but Angels were a late entry into the sweepstakes. A third, unnamed team — Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs? — may have gotten into the action.
In many respects, the Angels are the ideal team for Pujols, since the American League has the designated hitter and does not play the Cardinals, the only team he’s ever played for.
Besides, not everyone thought re-signing Pujols was in the Cards’ best interests — members of that camp ranged from baseball reporters like Tom Verducci to St. Louis fans. But there’s one enormously disappointed man right now. Stan the Man isn’t getting what he wants for Christmas.
