Whats the deal with Pujols?

Filed under: Uncategorized — florencemachine @ 4:55 pm

I’ll preface this post by stressing that I know absolutely nothing about baseball and the MLB. All I know that Pujols is one of the best players in the league and a three-time MVP winner.

However, I was reading in the papers that Pujols turned down an 8 year 200 million contract, with Pujols also set to be a part owner of the franchise when he retired. His contract demands are somewhere in the region of 10 year 300 million.

I’m quite frankly baffled. How greedy must these sports superstars be? Should these athletes, the best at what they do, really be paid such ridiculous amounts to play sport?
