Also, I'm skeptical of the Marlins sinking in that kind of money to take on a contract like that, new stadium or not.
NYY don't make much sense. They have Tex lined up for years. NYM would be interesting as they have the resources. They do have Ike Davis, but I'm sure they would happily unload him if it meant getting Pujols.
Personally, I think Albert stays and he's just trying to increase awareness and urgency to his contract situation since the offseason for the Cards is almost here and he wants his option year to be bought out for more $$$. Fine by me!
Well, I'm sure Houston & Miami having lower tax rates (both on a state & local level) probably helps. Players get taxed for every city they play in. Playing half your games in either of those two cities probably cuts down a large portion of taxes.
