Los Angeles Angels Releasing Albert Pujols


The Los Angeles Angels are releasing future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols today, per sources. Pujols is in the final year of his 10-year, $253 million contract.

This is incredible news. While not totally unexpected, the timing is weird and the question remains if the release also releases him from the 10 year post-playing days contract. Apparently, that contract is only worth a million a year so it is possible Pujols just gets that in a lump sum and he’s free to go become the hitting coach for the St. Louis Cardinals like I want.

I hope he finds himself in Cardinals red real soon.
