I think this is good news for the Cardinals in their bid to keep Pujols. This works out to a 7 year deal at $22M per. Sure, Pujols will get a premium on top of that, but it seems that the market for big hitting first baseman is around $22M a year with the exception of the $25M signed by Howard because he accepted less years. My guess is that the Cardinals will find the money to keep him especially since it seems that a jump from $22M for Gonzalez to $30M and over for Pujols is unrealistic. So where does Fielder fit into all of this? More or less than A-Gon?
