    We underpaid him for a decade, now you get to overpay him for a decade. Fair trade from my perspective.

    I'm a big Angels fan also but I have got to agree with this comment. While I am happy that the Angels have scored Albert, I cannot say that I am not a little worried about a 10 year contract for a 30 year old player...

    These things have a way of blowing up in one's face in the future.

    Puljos guaranteed 10 years or with an option out?

    Anyways, the Lakers just got Chris Paul, looks like there is still money left in LA even after the recession...

    I wouldnt worry about it at all. You folks play in the american league and have the DH spot. Albert has an easy 5-6 years in the field then DH. Also barring catastrophic injury, toward the end of the contract he should be in the ballpark of Bond's homerun record. If so, that will be a $$ winfall for ownership and a hot ticket for the home towners. Big win for the Angels.

    Funny/clever...but wrong. Money AND location matter. Small market TV location or 2nd largest in the country. Gee, I wonder which one is more appealing? Hold on, let's ask Mr Pujols.

    What in the world are you talking about? While I agree there may be some financial issues that may appear at some point it is not lost on me that it is not my money involved.

    From baseball perspective this deal makes perfect sense. Heck, the Angels were outscored by the (St)Rangers last year by about 200 runs. Pujols should help in that department big time. NTM we finally have a true, true 3 hole/clean up hitter for first time since ......well,I don't remember, maybe Tim Salmon or whoever. At any rate Albert should also make the people around him much better (I'm looking at you Vernon Wells/Torry Hunter) and this should also help the offense.

    Having said all that I am almost as pleased that we signed C.J. Wilson. We needed a lefty and another starter and we got one. Plus it doesn't hurt that we have made the StRangers a little less powerful either!

    WHAT SAY YE?

    What I'm saying is that financially it's a horrible decision. Tying up that kind of money for a player already on the decline is ludicrous. Wilson was a great acquisition, and I think they'll get much more out of that pick. But Pujols just isn't worth that kind of money. It's not about putting butts in the seat because the Angels are already putting more butts in the seats than most teams, by a substantial amount.

    The guy will be an improvement over other possiblities, but for that kind of dough?


    But this was a Rams moving to LA thread so I'm going to go back on topic.


    Come on home Rams!

    HAHAHAHAHA. That's a good one!

    Um, yea, it was the extra $40M, home-slice. He doesn't care how many people watch TV in the LA area.

    Since they play on Monday night in Seattle, they won't be back home until early Tuesday. I'm sure they'll be pretty tired once they get into Lambert. But I digress.....

    You are absolutely right about the Angels making a horrible financial decision. If his body holds together, he has maybe 3 more years in the field, at which point the Angels will be spend the subsequent 7 years paying $25M per year for a DH.

    I hate losing the face of the Cards over the past decade, but the Cards will go on. I would have hated more tying up that much money for a symbol.

    30? 'fraid not. He'll be at least 32 in January. AT LEAST 32.

    He's a great player, and will be an excellent face for the Angels franchise. But he's got at most 3 years on top of the game, if that.

    He may not care if the people of LA are watching, but the TV executives do because the audience in LA is the second largest possible. Which gives them more money to pay the team for local television rights. Which gives the team the ability to pay him more money. Ergo, location is important when it comes to income. The struggle it seems will always be the ability of smaller markets to compete with the larger markets.
