It’s time to party like it’s 1999, people. Yahoo’s Tim Brown is the bearer of glad tidings.
Albert Pujols, the heart and hammer of the St. Louis Cardinals for more than a decade, will leave St. Louis and sign with the Los Angeles Angels, a person with knowledge of the deal told Yahoo! Sports.
Latecomers to the Pujols derby, the Angels will pay Pujols $250 million to $260 million over 10 years, a devastating turn for the Cardinals and a departure from past organizational philosophies for Arte Moreno’s Angels.
After a month-long search for wealth and happiness, most notably in Miami, Pujols will not return to the only organization he’s known.
