Albert has made a decision — and it’s not to stay a Cardinal. The briefest of details from Joe Strauss at STLToday.com:
Albert Pujols has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The deal is for 10 years and $250 million.
There is plenty of reaction from throughout Cardinal Nation right now — just take a look at Twitter for a sample.
We’ll have more here later.
In the meantime, while I’m sad to see Albert go, it’s also a relief they didn’t match the Angels offer. And, just a week later, we now know the answer to what’s really important to him — and it’s not a Cardinals legacy at all.
