Albert Pujols is overpaid, but he’s also an awesome human being

They’re his employees, not Albert’s. It’s ridiculous that after losing millions himself this season, Albert is covering a significant portion of money that Arte is too cheap to take care of himself. 

Maybe if Albert offered to give some money to Arte they’d be playing right now.

If a player has to be overpaid, I’m glad when it’s someone like Albert who actually uses it to help people. 

Also, f Arte.

A lot of players have stepped up to pay the small time employees that the billionaire owners won’t.

I'm so over Arte.

Just sell the team and go away.

 

Hey everyone, ease off of Arte.  He needs yacht fuel. Seriously, Pujols lost half a season's salary, one of the higher amounts on his contract mind you, and is paying the employees and he's worth maybe 1/10 of Arte.  David Price is also paying every Dodgers minor leaguer 1k.  Not a good look for owners.

when was the last "good look" for owners? fair question, i'm sure there's something, but nothing comes to mind.

 

When he Arte agreed to pay Pujols a quarter of a billion dollars.

that's not in the spirit of what i asked. i'm not asking if the owners are cheap, blah, blah, blah. i don't find that conversation very interesting. i was just looking for an act that wasn't solely for profit, which the pujols signing was as well.
