Reason #7,432 Why You Don't Sign 10-Year Contracts

Done
Albert Pujols, in year two (!) of a deal that will make past Los Angeles Angels Of Outer Rancho Cucomonga death deals look like nothing, DL'd for the year. His OPS was all of 767, so it's not like this is going to be a bitter loss for the Angeles to take... but dear heaven, do the Angels need for an NBA/NHL style amnesty experience to kick in right about now.

Oh, and Albert is 34 now, already coming off his worst year, and at an age and size where injury rehab is not, well, a given.

Eight more years, $212 million more coming. This is going to make Vernon Wells, CJ Wilson, Josh Hamilton and Gary Mathews Jr. look positively peachy.

Oh, and one final thing...

Does St. Louis ever, even once, make a personnel mistake?
