WAAAAAA! He plays first base!
Flexibility. Ideally you want to get your best 8 players on the field at the same time. Pujols came up with the ability to play 1b, 3b, lf, rf which enabled the Cards to bring him up and play him every day with McGwire at 1b.
WAAAAAAAA! He allegedly doesn't play good defense!
Got nothing here.
Dunn makes 15 million a year. Alonso wants 8 million total. A little bit of difference.
