Albert Pujols Signs With Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim


Tim Brown of Yahoo reported today that  three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols has agreed to a ten-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim that will give pay the Dominican slugger at least $250 million. The contract, which includes a no-trade clause, is the third in MLB history to reach over the $200 million mark (in 2001, the Texas Rangers signed Alex Rodriguez for $252 million, and the New York Yankees agreed to a $275 million contract with the same player in 2008).

According to the Los Angeles Times, Pujols new contract will cost owner Arturo Moreno– the first Latino owner to own a major sports team in the United States– approximately $70 million more than what he paid for the franchise back in 2003 ($183 million).

This, of course, comes as a crushing blow to St. Louis Cardinals fans. Pujols spent all of his eleven years for the franchise and led them to two World Series. Cheer up, St. Louis. At least you’ll always have the Gateway Arch and… nope, that’s pretty much it.
