The only reason why Tex and CC got such big contracts was because the Yankees needed them, and needed them badly.
Getting Pujols would be nice for any of these teams, but they all can win the World Series without him.
And that's just Pujols. Howard and Fielder are not a "value" upgrade for any of these teams. The teams can fill their rolls with players who provide much better value per dollar than Howard and Fielder can.
I'm just saying it's going to be interesting. I think these players will have to settle for a lot less than they are anticipating.
