Quick thought on what was the last straw of inspiration for me to write this: 

ALBERT PUJOLS WILL NEVER BE A YANKEE… or a Met.   His family moved to NY when they first came to the states to join the big Dominican community.  But they were used to small-town life.  I'm pretty sure they were living in a rough part of NY, the Bronx I think.  They didn't like the crime and cost of living.  As a child, Albert saw someone get shot, and I've even heard a story that his uncle got mugged which I can seem to find record of right now.  But after a few years, they left town for Independence, MO. 

It's why I think Albert to NY will not happen.  Great city.  Not for Albert.  He wouldn't like media scrutiny either.  The Angels and maybe the Dodgers?  They'd have a shot.  Boston?  Possibly.  The White Sox?  It could happen.  But I think he likes it where he is per his statements of wanting to be a Cardinal for life.  Stop rumor mongering Chicago and East Cost scribes
