Albert Pujols may have played his last game in St. Louis as a member of the Cardinals this Sunday. With St. Louis missing the playoffs a very real possibility, the slugger's contract talks will soon heat up.
Pujols set a deadline for a contract extension in spring training. He promised not to let contract talks drag on through the regular season.
Pujols' February deadline came and passed without a new contract. True to his word, the Cardinals first baseman has not allowed his impending free agency distract him from the regular season.
There has been little insight from the Pujols camp, but a little digging reveals the first baseman and a few of other people giving us a look into the situation in St. Louis.
