As if the Cardinals’ October no-show wasn’t bad enough, the title of this article at NESN is enough to stop me in my tracks.
Please, Albert. Don’t do this to me. Cards ownership over the years has been notorious loathe to “show the money” to even their most stalwart players.
At least he says money isn’t the only factor he’ll consider when his contract is up. He says it’s also about being a part of a team with a commitment to winning. Is this a subtle hint that he wants ownership to open the purse strings for fellow slugger (and current free agent) Matt Holliday?
And, did you catch it? He also says his future is in “God’s hands”.
Cards fans, that gives us approximately 24 months to pray for the hand of God to keep the best hitter of his generation in a Redbird jersey.
