Apparently the reason he was released was because he wanted a chance to play 1B full time. Clearly not going to happen in St. Louis.

at this point in his career, demanding to play full time? With his injury history? Decline in production?

The only teams that would do that is non-contending teams looking to boost attendance.

Their DH slot was also pretty blocked by a pitcher.

If he's smart he will come home. Puljos could fill in for Goldy when he needs a day off just as well as Carp.


Take Carpenters AB's off the bench. I'm sure Pujols could give us more production off the bench than Carp. Thats a pretty low bar to clear. Seems like every time I catch one of Carp's AB's he's meekly swinging at something in a strikeout or meekly grounding out to the 2B/1B and leaving men on base in scoring position.

If I am the Cards front office I'm torn between telling him to **** off for accusing them of insulting him with a $225MM offer and being thankful he kept them from making a massive mistake and go ahead and bring him in for his last season.

"Technically, Pujols will remain an Angel for the next 10 years. Well, at least heíll be on their payroll. His contract includes a 10-year, $10 million personal services contract, but itís difficult imagining him representing an organization in the community after coldly dismissing him."

He's made $300 million at least, I don't see him debasing himself for 10 years for another $10 million.

Why would anyone want Pujols with his .198 batting average? The guy is at least 41 years old. Likely 3 or 4 years older than that.

Outside of a fan draw for an organization that has attendance issues and a really shitty first baseman, I can't really think of a good reason.

I think it would be nice for St. Louis to sign him to a ceremonial contract so he could retire a Cardinal. Other than that, he's done and has been done for a long time.

For us, this year, he cant be worse than Carpenter and his 0.113 BA. Who just keeps getting crucial AB's with men on base and epic failing. He's the worst in all of baseball with 35+ AB's.

The best part is last week he started 2 games and he batted 4th (:-)) and 2nd (:-)) in the line up.

What. The. Fuck.

I wonder if Schildt is trying to make a point to Mo or something.

OMG I tuned in and saw that lineup and wanted to throw something. Carp is not going to get it going. This isnít a slump. Itís been going on for 2 years for crissakes.
