Albert Pujols released...

I read the article and have come to the conclusion that Albert, Pedro and David are the ones who should be paying tremendous respect to the game and the fans for providing them and their families with life-altering wealth doing something that the vast majority of people would pay to do.

Not to get too dramatic here, but I agree.

EVERYBODY knows pujols has been done for years now... and theyve known for years how bad his contract hurt this org. 

And the org kept playing him, as a starter, well past his expiration date.

It was Pujols, afterall, who said years ago he'd quit if he didnt have it anymore....

Pretty sure Pujols remembers how bad Calhoun was his last few years here. And agreed it was time to move on.

And Calhoun has been far better the last 4 years than him. And can run and field the ball, too

I agree with the screw AP, but no last minute presser is going to change the fact that Arod spent his entire life pretending he wasnt a douchebag.

I won't disagree but even a douchebag like A-Rod knew to make his last moment not acting like a douchebag. Pujols went out as a douche.

David Ortiz in his 40s wasn’t treated like Pujols.

Yes David, you are correct.  But do you maybe think that hitting.315/.401/.620 with 38 homers and 127 rbi at 40 years old had a little something to do with it versus absolutely sucking and hurting your team?

David, we will give you a few minutes to think about your answer smart guy.

He tried to force their hand by insisting he's not a bench player. 

The team then unceremoniously dropped him. 

That’s what I’m not clear on now.  It sounds like they were gonna dump him anyways for being sucky.

my guess is that they told him he wasn't gonna play much and he said 'i'm albert pujols' and they said 'cool.  you can be him somewhere else'.

But that isn’t what Maddon said.  We may not be hearing the entire story but Maddon’s blurb made it sound like they just finally decided to drop him.  

If Albert accepted a back up role, ready to ride out his final season and they just said fuck it, he’s worthless anyways, then I side with Albert and think it was a classless move.  I no longer think this is what occurred.

If Albert did not accept a bench role and demanded to start or be released than obviously it’s all on him.  I had gotten to the point that this was what likely happened but the clarity of the drama was muddied.

At this point I’m going to stop giving a crap either way.  Maybe I’ll spank it and crash.  Goodnight.

Eh, I am for shitting on AP whenever its applicable, but what did he do wrong the first play (the first roughly 45 seconds?)

It was a tough throw, he had to loft it over the baserunner's head, since they were on the same path.

Yeah, iglesias is making some bad throws in most of those, too. Albert should have dug them out, perhaps. But still bad throws.

Theres been a few pujols lowlight ones the past few weeks though.... im sure someone could make a video of them
