Here's an article I stumbled across on ESPN. Take a gander..... It probably doesn't mean squat, but still.
"I speak with Manny every three days and he tells me, 'Man, no one wants to sign me,'" Pujols said Thursday during a news conference. "I'm not an agent or general manager, but I can't understand how Manny has not signed."
Right, Albert. The money Manny wants now is nothing compared to what you'll want when you hit the open market.
Pujols passed along Ramirez's telephone number to St. Louis manager Tony La Russa.
"Maybe St. Louis doesn't have the money to sign him, but he could give them a discount because St. Louis is a great city that supports its players," Pujols said.
Manny give St. Louis a discount?
That's laughable.... or is it?
I was about to post this as a fanshot but I thought I would get everyone else's input on the subject. I'm kind of curious.
I figured maybe change it up and not talk about Brian Roberts, Jake Peavy, etc.
Let's say Manny does sign with St. Louis.... how does that affect the Cubs? Would St. Louis give us more trouble if they ended up landing him? And do you see Manny taking a "discount" to be Pujols's teammate and to play there?
Just wanted to get people's ideas of where they think Manny will sign since teams have shown that they don't believe in throwing him the money he thinks he deserves.
