Summing up everything written—it was the money. The Cards offered lots, the Angels offered a lot more. Most people say, if I were in Pujols’ shoes, I would have stayed with the Cardinals, because of the community, the support, the ties of friendship, the charity work—all of that. However, that’s not putting themselves in Pujols’ shoes, that’s putting Pujols in our shoes. We, St. Louisans, the Cardinal nation value, more than anything, family and community. We think that the only variable Pujols could possibly have been thinking was the money. That’s what the pundits have been telling us for many months. But if you watch Pujols play, you know that he is not anything close to a single minded individual. He is aware of everything on the field, and I would imagine he is aware of a great deal off of the field.

The Lebron James argument.

Pujols isn’t a surgeon doing brain surgery in the inner city for free.

I’m with you on this. He should not be criticized for doing what is best for him- and his game.

re: #1 researchok

Basketball metrics are not the same as baseball metrics. With Lebron, you get a highlight film. In baseball, thanks to Bill James, you can actually compare players across eras. You can even define the eras. We could go on about this, and that is exactly the de rigueur at many South St. Louis pubs.

OK, I’m outta my league.

That said, why can’t basketball players be measured in the same way? Surely there are enough stats.

I hated to see Pujols leave St Louis. If he has any heart, I think he will regret leaving. If he is just another mercenary, then he made the right choice. Going to the AL for a ten tear contract will give him the option of being a DH in his later years. Personally I hate the DH rule. That is not baseball.
