Albert Pujols isn't leaving St. Louis. There, it's that simple. Considering his age, injury concerns and impact on the city of St. Louis, Pujols is worth more to the Cardinals than to any other organization. But if he did, where would he go?
Let's say theoretically the Cardinals are devoid of business smarts, let alone baseball IQ, and let the most influential player in Cardinals history since Stan Musial to walk. Who would have the dough to even make a bid for the generation's most prolific hitter?
I'm not a Cardinals fan, or a fan of any of their rivals. As a baseball fan, I want to see him stay, like I wanted to see Joe Mauer and Derek Jeter stay. Certain players just should wear certain jerseys and Albert Pujols deserves the statue next to Musial that he will get if he stays in St. Louis.
