I'm not entirely sure what prompted it, but on Twitter this morning Derrick Goold reminds us of the list of teams to which Albert Pujols would accept a trade. The good thing: The Florida Marlins are on the list, and of all the teams that will never, ever, even for a moment pay for Albert Pujols, the Marlins are the penny-pinchingest. The rest:â†µ
dgoold On the list Pujols submitted in November, per reporting by @JoeStrauss in spring training, were Marlins, Houston, Angels and Dodgers.â†µ
Kind of a motley collection of teams—apparently Pujols likes Los Angeles, almost-Los Angeles, and hitting in Minute Maid, for which I can't really blame him. If Craig Biggio could learn, at 35, to flip 20 baseballs a year over that left field fence, I don't know why Albert Pujols wouldn't be pushing 60 there.â†µ
But I can blame Derrick Goold. I don't want to see this! I don't want to think about this! Take it away!
