If this truly is Albert Pujols' last season with the St. Louis Cardinals, he's definitely going out with a bang.
Pujols led the Cards on a magical late-season run to overtake the NL Wild Card spot on the final day of the season. After shocking the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS, the team now finds themselves deadlocked with their division rival, the Milwaukee Brewers, in the NLCS.
Whether the Cards win or lose doesn't even matter at this point. Although many of Pujols' numbers are down this season, his late-season surge has proven he's still one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball and he'll be highly sought after this winter.
Either way, the long-awaited day when Pujols will hit free agency is finally only a few weeks away. While many people assume he'll be back in St. Louis to round out his Hall of Fame career, it's not quite as simple as that—unless of course, the Cardinals print off their own money supply in GM John Mozeliak's office at Busch Stadium.
In light of all the uncertainty, I've decided to rate all 30 teams' chances to sign the slugger this winter. It was simple. I began with 100 percent, then divided it among all of his potential suitors.
At this point, every team in baseball has a chance at signing the superstar, but which teams will actually step up and make a run at him?
