Pujols Wants Manny in St. Louis

According to this article, Albert Pujols passed on Manny's phone number to manager Tony La Russa, and would like him to sign with St. Louis. Pujols admits that the money may not be there, but he speaks with Manny every three days, and thinks that Manny should take a discount. Could you imagine the 3 & 4 combination of Pujols and Manny? The National League would have to concede and the Cardinals should just be deemed NL Champions. Now I know that there's the whole "It looks good on paper" argument, but this is perhaps the only duo that this argument doesn't work with. It will look good on paper, and on the field. It'll probably never happen, but its fun to think about...Well, perhaps not for the NL Central, but its fun for us in the AL East to think about.

The Cardinals are too cheap to sign Manny. He'll be a Dodger by the end of the week. My tarot card lady says so!

If only Manny was a sleek centerfielder with a heart of gold.

Yankee Magic, that is my dream lineup, but the Yankees seem done with their off season expenditures.

Jane, its funny but I kind of just want Manny to sign somewhere, anywhere. As long as he's still out there, hope remains for the power lineup Yankee Magic posted.

Scratch the hope I guess the according to MLBTRADERUMORS.COM the Yanks have been cut off. I guess thats what happens when you become drunk with high priced talent.

Manny is the greatest right-handed hitter in the last 20 years. The simple fact that no ones eagerly going to sign up is egregious. Pujols knows whats up, and the Cardinals would be NASTY if they signed him.

If only Manny's dreadlocks can fire laser beam to demolish every sigle potential home run ball swishing through the left-field sky...
