With slugger Albert Pujols yet to be signed, will a future Hall of Famer sign a new deal in the near term?
We’ve seen some big names make new deals in free agency since the MLB lockup ended, but people are still waiting to see what happens with Albert Pujols. Despite being 42 years old, Pujols is still not ready to retire and is looking for a new home.
In the end, however, Pujols did not receive many rumors and expectations that he would not agree to a new contract any time soon. So when can there be a decision along the way?
Cardinals fans are still hoping for a reunion with Albert Pujols
With Pujols still there, people across St. Louis is hoping that the World Series champion will return home to return the Cardinals. There have been reports of Dominican Republic interest from the club in making that happen, but again, nothing is imminent here for the Pujols.
On top of that, FanSided baseball insider Robert Murray doesn’t believe that St. Louis will be signing Pujols, as the team passed that opportunity last year and they are poised to give some of their top leads more action during this campaign.
“When Pujols became a free agent during the regular season, the Cardinals showed little interest in a reunion.” Murray wrote in a recent post. “They like their in-house picks and, of course, have Paul Goldschmidt at the first base. Universal DH makes for a much more sensible fit, but the team has been adamant in giving their young picks like Lars Nootbaar, Nolan Gorman and Juan Yepez a chance for meaningful bats in the game. this season. “
According to Murray, it seems that Pujols’ original DR word is not entirely accurate. With less than two weeks until Opening Day, teams will need to act urgently if they want the Pujols to bomb them. At the same time, it seems that the clubs, including the Cardinals, are also rushing here.
