Albert Pujols freed by the Angels
Bomb in the MLB: Los Angeles Angels will release Albert Pujols, according to information from Mark Feinsand.
The first baseman is in the final year of his 10-year, $ 253 million contract. He will get paid for the rest of his contract, which is around $ 20 million.
The problem with Pujols is the fact that he was no longer delivering the goods. Since his arrival in Los Angeles – and especially for several years – he was a more than average player.
Having him out of line was arguably awkward for the Angels.
According to some sources, he would have been sorry not to play yesterday. It would have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.
The decision (to leave it out) would not have come from Joe Maddon, but from the management.
What you have to understand is that the first goal is occupied by the excellent Jared Walsh and the position of DH, by the incredible Shohei Ohtani. There was no room for him.
The fact remains that the guy is heading straight to the Hall of Fame when he can. He was so exceptional
It remains to be seen whether he will retire (which he was supposed to do at the end of the year, according to some rumors) or whether he will want to end the campaign elsewhere in a bench role.
