Say what!? Albert Pujols and the rally monkey joining forces in Anaheim?

Yes, folks. The rumors are true.

According to various sources, the greatest player of our generation will be an Anaheim Angel when he signs a 10-year, $250 million dollar deal today with a full no-trade clause with Halo upper management.

I'm sure Scioscia is all smiles—as is the rest of the clubhouse—imagining a World Series title in 2012. No more of that small ball, run n' gun all-out style of play.

This team can consider themselves legitimately dangerous.

While the Cardinals are broken hearted, let this be a lesson learned on many fronts.

When a star of Pujols' size demands whatever he demands, you must say yes.

Saying no is not allowed.

Cardinal fans—if you're reading this—don't hate the star, hate the game. Furthermore, hate your management for flocking broken promise after broken promise at a star who's smarter that that. 

Imagining Pujols, Morales, Trumbo, Wells and Hunter in the central part of the batting order is like a pitcher eating poison and then being asked to pick another piece and ingest it again.

Great news for Orange County and the host of teeny bop blond bomb shells wearing their tight fitting Halo red t-shirts and unbuttoned jerseys.

I'm wondering if the rally monkey now holds any relevance at all. Does he? 

Where can I comment?
