The best player in baseball, Albert Pujols, is at odds with his employer, the St. Louis Cardinals, over the next seven to 10 years of his life. Or at least he seems to be. While no one in the media appears to have all the facts, that Pujols has not reached an agreement with the Cardinals by now suggests there is trouble.
Maybe Albert Pujols is not the man we thought he was. Now if the Cardinals’ recent offer was seven years, say, $150 million, then Pujols has a case. But if the offer was close to $200 million, then Pujols is not the man we thought he was.
