The Albert Pujols Trade Nightmare List: The Yes-Trade Clause

New, 10 comments

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:

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.

But I can blame Derrick Goold. I don't want to see this! I don't want to think about this! Take it away!
