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.
