1. The ANGELS??
Didn't see that one coming. Olney usually has the story straight.

2. St. Louis paper confirming this act of high treason as well.
Oh well, what can you expect from somebody who has the unfortunate last name of Pujols?

5. Sorry to see him leave STL but glad we're not on the hook for that much moolah
It's just sad. He could've been an icon in St. Louis forever and been that rarest of things - a massive superstar who turned down the big bucks to remain with the fans and the team that have supported him from day one. But no - I guess that extra $50 million makes that much difference on top of an already obscene $200 mil contract. Oh well - so long, Pujols. Enjoy your grotesque amounts of money, but I hope you realize they won't buy you a legacy. Just ask A-Rod.

6. Well, at least it isn't the Marlins
The Angels, at least, have been in the big leagues as long as he has!

7. As an Angels fan... This is probably the greatest day in team history since 10/28/02.
:woohoo:
