Cardinals Sign Carlos Beltran

December 23, 2011

The Cardinals have signed outfielder Carlos Beltran to a two year-26 million dollar contract a decent deal.  Beltran fits well with the Cardinals and will play more like he did with the Mets in recent years than the Giants last season.  He is sort of a replacement for Albert Pujols, in a way and he will be the great three hitter and player the Cards need to stay in contention and he won’t decline much during the duration of the deal.  He will play a pretty good right field and will be an above average defender in the two years.  I can’t say how much I like this deal for both sides and Beltran should have a very good and strong ending to his career.  He can hit in the NL Central too and at times it could look like he’s hitting back in his prime and he could very well be an all-star and the teams best hitter.  Watch out for a big 2012, especially at home for Beltran and him to be a very good Cardinal.  If the Cards make the postseason watch out too, because with him, they have a ton of great postseason performers, Beltran being the best.  Beltran-Holliday-Berkman is a great 3-4-5.

New Line-up

  1. SS Rafael Furcal
  2. CF Jon Jay
  3. RF Carlos Beltran
  4. LF Matt Holliday
  5. 1B Lance Berkman
  6. 3B David Freese
  7. C Yadier Molina
  8. 2B Skip Schumaker

I like it, looks a lot better with Beltran and though not the best, up there.


Angels Sign Albert Pujols

December 12, 2011

The Angels have signed future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols to a ten-year, over 250 million dollar deal, sure he’s overpayed but he’s the best player in baseball since Barry Bonds(and no steroids!).  First, a reflection on his Cardinal career, considering last year was his worst and he missed out on 100 RBI on the season for the first team that he would have gotten easily barring a wrist injury, he has had a great Cardinal career and dare I say this but he’s pretty close to being as good as Stan Musial was in St. Louis and if you take Pujols 11 years and compare to Musial’s it’s a toss-up, plus he won two World Series, very successful and I think I’d take Pujols over Musial, though Musial I respect a ton and was one of the greatest hitters ever.  It’s a huge loss to the Cards and it will cost them at least 10 wins and a lot more, but they will survive and maybe they will surprise me.  Here’s how Pujols Angels career should play out, years 1-6 worth the money, years 7-8 Still great but overpayed, years 9-10 still good but way overpayed.  Pujols will have a big first year in LA, not his best ever and he may still have more to come but Pujols will have a good year and bolster the Angels line-up a ton.  The angels are probably a little better than the Rangers now too and Pujols should have a great rest of his career there.  He wills till win a few more MVPs and will be feared.  He will give them a lot fo production and there is no chance he will be a bust.  He’s the best player in the MLB so the impact for now will be off the charts but in 6-8 years the deal might be a bit heavy, but a lot of good to come for Pujols and he will just hit, hit, and hit some more.  His defense will be above average and this is a great fit.  The whole line-up looks a lot better.  Expect over a 115 HR in the first 3 years of the deal and over 375 in all of it, plus a .325-ish batting average and a ton of RBI, greats stats


Pujols Rumors

December 7, 2011

Albert Oujols is getting multiple 10 year-200 million dollar offers, worth for now but at the end overpaying, but he still has seven or eight top of the NL (or AL maybe) season left in him, so it may just be worth it

  • The Marlins have made the biggest push and if they could get Pujols, that would make them the best offense in the nL, if not MLB and Pujols can hit anywhere so there are really no concerns about him fitting anywhere but he could become a legend in Miami, not only for himself but the team and I see him doing very well and eht he always does if not better for Miami and he still has MVP seasons coming, Miami would get so much production
  • I like him the best as a Cardinal and he probably would be best off going back here or to Miami,b ut he’d be better off in St. Louis and just pick up where he left off and have an amazing career and become a legend as a Cardinal, and pass Musial as the greatest Cardinal all-time
  • I like the Cubs getting him a nd he could maybe do best here, at least as far as his power numbers
  • I like him anywhere but the Angels is one of my least favorite destinations out of all these clubs.
  • Bottom line is Pujols will be Pujols give or take a few adjustments to park and division factors which won’t affect his stats pretty much at all.  He will be a Hall Of Fame player anywhere, the team that gets him will be big winners.
