Shouldn’t you wait until you’ve locked up Pujols long term before doing this?
As a Card fan, I like Mo, I guess. He’s done a good job of getting Tony the guys he needs to contend (although I still think this Matt Holiday deal is going to look awfully bad in a couple years — like Alfonso Soriano looks like a bad deal in Chicago now, four years into his mega deal).
But this move is all about helping lock up El Hombre long term in Cardinal Red.
Speaking of Cardinal Red, I had to share this pic that the little lady took. Pretty sweet, eh?
