ESPN News - Olney: 3-time NL MVP Albert Pujols leaves Cards, agrees with Angels on 10-year, $250 million deal

DALLAS -- Albert Pujols has agreed to a 10-year, $250 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney on Thursday.

The deal includes a full no-trade clause, which Pujols had been seeking and may have been a sticking point in his negotiations with the Miami Marlins.

Pujols had turned down an offer from the Cardinals, the only team he has ever played for, about a year ago, but St. Louis was still in the bidding as of Wednesday.

IDIOTS!

That is a lot of $$$$$$. Wow. Wonder what that means for Prince. He should be able to get $20M a year I would think.

Great player but 10 years is a joke.

Bad move for the long term.

Scioscia must be smiling though, was hoping he'd cross town to Dodger Blue soon, oh well.

Doubt it. Mariners were pushing for Fielder hard and the Angels getting him will just ramp up their efforts.

I feel bad for Jered Weaver though. Took a huge discount to stay and then the Angels do this. Lol. Just lol.

I hate he's having a slump, I want him to break Bonds' record. Hope it's just a slump and not a decline....

Everyone is going to bury the Angels, but all they really need to do is fire hitting coach Mickey Hatcher. Hatcher has never been held accountable for a track record that is average, at best. Players like Pujols and Wells come in and struggle, while players like Napoli have moved on and thrived. Bringing in a hitting coach who the players don't see as a flaming dumbass would do wonders for the team.

Mickey was on the '88 Dodger World Series team with Scoscia so they go way back, dont know if Mike will blow him out.

Anyone remember Hatcher hit a 2 run home run early in Game 1 before Kirk Gibson hit his classic game winner?

Pujols has to be pressing, give him a day off Mike, dont even let him come to the stadium.
