When the Los Angeles Angels inked slugging first baseman Albert Pujols to a monstrous 10-year contract, it was a pretty big deal for them.

The Cardinal organization knows how to spend their money right. I was happy that they offered Albert big bucks to stay, but happier that they didn't try to compete with the big coastal money. The Yankees spend 3 times as much on their players, but it just goes to show that the World Series cannot be bought. There's more to baseball (at least in the St Louis) than throwing money at the situation and expecting magic.

Your better judgement isn't quite accurate.

Pujols' wife wanted to open a boutique shop in Beverly Hills, and told Albert to take a deal from an LA team so that she could accomplish that. Perhaps her new business on Rodeo Drive is having difficulties, or there are some related marital problems that are affecting Albert and distracting him on the field.

Also remember that Adam Dunn had a horrible year in 2011, after switching to the AL. This year Dunn is putting up much better numbers. Perhaps Albert Pujols also needs a season to adjust to the new league and new team.

The Cardinals have the best record in MLB and the Angels don't seem to be doing very well again losing record at home and on the road.

its sad really I would have love to see Albert in Cards unif till he retires jus to see how career would play out & he allways wanted to be like Stan ect but on other hand Cards made the right choice not to get in bidding war & its stiill very sad to see our icon in the later years of his playing days struggling away with a team & city that dont really care what happens to him
