After the breaking news that the Los Angeles Angels have released Albert Pujols, the St. Louis Cardinals shouldn’t waste a second to bring the club legend back to the team.
Seemingly out of nowhere, the Los Angeles Angels made the big decision to part ways with future Hall of Fame slugger Albert Pujols, according to MLB insider Mark Feinsand. In this final year of his massive 10-year contract, Pujols has struggled at the plate, hitting .198.
However, now that you are a free agent once again, you better believe that multiple teams will be ready to add their services. That said, the St. Louis Cardinals need to honk the horn asap and get him back to Busch Stadium, where he belongs.
Albert Pujols to close his career with the St. Louis Cardinals would be sensational
Pujols spent the first 11 years of his incredible career in St. Louis, establishing himself as one of the best hitters in the game. During his time with the Cardinals, Pujols was named the National League MVP three times and played in the All-Star Game in nine seasons.
He also hit 445 home runs for the club, while adding 1,329 RBIs. His last season with the organization was in 2011, the same year that St. Louis won the World Series. Pujols also won it all with the team in 2006.
For his career, the 6-foot-3, 235-pound fighter has 667 mind-blowing home runs to his name. That records at No. 5 on the all-time chart. Pujols still has a lot left in the tank and will want to join a contender in closing his career in the right way. Not only does a meeting with the Cardinals make sense, it would be really special to watch.
