A recent Post-Dispatch article asks the looming question: How much should the Cardinals pay to keep Albert Pujols a Cardinal for life?
The writers hem and haw about equivalent players, precedents, and what the team can afford, but I think this guy nailed it in the comments section:
You offer him Chesterfield. All of it.
If he balks at that, give him Ladue, with an option for Town & Country.
If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant’s life, she will choose to save the infant’s life without even considering if there are men on base.
It’s October again – that must mean it’s time for playoff baseball, featuring my hometown St. Louis Cardinals. As is tradition around these parts, I’ve changed the masthead accordingly.
I had the good fortune to see them stomp the Astros 11-3 a few weeks ago. Here’s hoping for similarly lopsided scores as they go for another World Series ring.
