In what world does this make sense?

by Blaidd Drwg

It appears the Phillies have had internal discussions about making a trade offer of Ryan Howard for Albert Pujols. The Cardinals would be insane to take that deal – Howard is older than Pujols, he is not nearly as good as a defender, not even close to being in the same league as a hitter and can’t really hit lefties all that well. They are both FA’s after the 2011 season and I can’t imagine there will be more than about a 6 or 7 million per annum difference in their contracts. Besides, would you really want to take the chance on the guy who’s body type does not age well and will probably be a DH in 3-4 years anyway?

    You’re assuming Pujols really is as old as he says he is. I agree though, the Cardinals would have to be laughing after they hung up the phone on that call.
