Allow Your Albert Pujols Fantasies to Run Wild for a Day or Two

Chicago Cubs Rumors, MLB News and Rumors

Now that Albert Pujols will officially (more like theoretically) become a free agent at season’s end, you can go ahead and do it. You know you want to. Indulge yourself.

You’re allowed to picture him in Cubbie Blue for just a little while.

Three competing executives say they expect the rival Cubs to make a big push for Pujols and, indeed, they do look like the greatest outside possibility at the moment. Wouldn’t that cast him in a new light for Cardinal Nation? The Cubs have the resources and the need, and execs feel they will pursue either Prince Fielder or more likely Pujols.

“They’ll give him the A-Rod deal,” one exec opined.

“They’ll give him $33 million or $34 million for seven years,” guessed another exec.

Of course, the mere threat that such a thing could occur will probably be enough for the Cardinals to get a deal done when the day comes.


Still, it’s nice to think about – even if only for a day or two.
