    If he ended up on the Cubs I would be so filled with sCardenfreude. What do you think the Cards fans would do in his first return to St. Louis? They gave Holliday a standing ovation after he caught that ball with his crotch so they’d probably throw a parade.

    I agree, no one player is worth that much. teams (Rangers/Cubs) who sign silly contracts end regretting it later. when he got here and asked about big signings, Ricketts said, something like, you can sign 2-3 very good players and under 30 for that kind of money. I believe it was in reference to Hendry’s bad signing of Soriano and others.

    agree he would help any team.

      Here’s where I disagree; not all gigantic contracts are busts. If you sign a TRUE superstar, he’ll probably live up to the money. The 3 biggest contracts of all-time:
      A-Rod, Jeter, Manny. All three played magnificently throughout their deals. Why? Because they’re first-ballot HOF-type talents.

      Is Soriano? No.
      Is Pujols? Yes.

    Dyno Don you can suck a f****** c**k! Albert Pujols has proven himself as the top baseball player in the last 10 years averaging a little over 40 home runs and around 115 RBI’s a year! he deservers any amount of money because he contributes so much to the team! so go f*** yourself!

        The Cards fans don’t read or write so fast.
