Before we go any further with the normal anger from Twitter Nation, think about how easy it would be to say ‘yes’ to a guaranteed baseball contract that would pay you $68,493 per day (every day) for the next 10 years. Can’t be taken away from you no matter how terrible you play in year 7 for the Angels.

Of course you’d do the same thing Albert Pujols did today, agreeing to a 10-year, $250,000,000 contract with the team. Guess who’s angry?

Via The L.A. Times:

The agreement, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports and includes a full no-trade clause, was confirmed by a person familiar with negotiations but who is not authorized to speak about it until it was officially announced.

It appeared Pujols would be heading back to St. Louis after the Miami Marlins pulled their 10-year, $220-million offer to the slugger Wednesday. The Cardinals had offered Pujols nine years and more than $200 million.

Biggest offer = winner. Not bad f-you money if you can get it.
