If people cared about the Florida Panthers they'd realize they bought the entire FA pool

The Marlins are still gonna get some hate. Especially if they pick up another pitcher. Although hopes of 'dream team' died with Pujols.

Word around town is the Marlins offered Pujols $275m and $100m to CJ Wilson. Calling BS on the Pujols offer (as it seems to come from sources surrounding Pujols, probably to make him not look like a greedy bastard, not that that would be wrong). As for the Wilson bit, I genuinely believe he took less to play at home.

He helped them win two titles. They need to chill the fuck out.

Nah if I were a Cardinals fan I'd be pretty pissed. Basically all this means is that all that crap he was saying during the season and playoffs was "deuces, I'm outta here!".

The Angels will have a good offense next season.

But look at the roster. They're old.

Pujols, Bobby Abreu, Torii Hunter, Vernon Wells...these dudes are all old and regressing. And that's the core of the lineup. They do have that Trumbo kid who came up big last year. And Trout, who's supposed to be a beast. But, yeah.

I'm not all that worried about the Los Angeles Angels of Southern California/Anaheim.

Maybe the money was secondary. I think Albert just really likes Disneyland.

Both sentiments I kind of feel. The Fuck Pujols part, I mean. I just don't like it when franchise players leave. At all. There are exceptions (I want Zambrano gone like nobody's business), but I just hate to see someone like Pujols go, and it's one of the things I kind of hate about baseball. No one stays with their team their whole career anymore. They try to suck every last season they can out of themselves, and a lot of the time, they end up looking like greedy bastards.

You do not want Oswalt. He's got a bad back. That shit doesn't go away.

Very well. Replace Roy Oswalt with Yu Darvish or Edwin Jackson. I'm not complainin! I just want another pitcher to complete the rotation.

Oh yes, I hear you, I'm just warning you guys about his baggage. He threw out his back fixing his house after the tornadoes last year and missed a lot of time and lost velocity. He's already in his mid-30s and is one of those guys I could see just hanging it up out of the blue because he isn't a baseball lover.

The sad thing, though, is that of Pujols, Wells, Hunter, Abreu, Morales, Trumbo, Bourjos, and Trout, only 5 of them can play at a time. Which three do you bench? If one of them is Trout, the answer is incorrect.

Bench Wells and Trumbo and their sub-0.300 OBPs. Morales hasn't played in what, 18 months?

Cards' fans should be relieved. The Cards got Albert's best seasons and 2 World Series Championships at a relatively cheap price. The Halos are gonna be overpaying for a dude who is beat up and in the decline of his career.

While I would've loved to have him on my team batting in a lineup with Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, and Mike Stanton... it's a total dick move. I can't imagine any reason for wanting to leave St. Louis, which was so good to him.
