I have four leagues where he will be up for bid this year. What's the bid here?

Seems like Milwaukee would make some sense with their hole at 1st base.

It wasn't obvious then that decline would come, or when, but everyone but Arte Moreno knew it would come at some point. I've been in plenty of parks when Pujols was working the stands before games, he's a great player and great promoter. He may have even paid off for Moreno. But obviously in Roto Dollars it was a bad deal.

In the fall of 2010 you had this debate?

I would have taken the position, "Are you kidding me?"

DFA seems a little cold, even with the nice note from Moreno. What a terrible contract.

At First Pitch in 2010 Nick Minnix and I had a cage fight presentation about whether Pujols was past his prime. I had the "not quite yet" side and nailed it. But Nick's arguments look better over the years.
