    I heard on the radio coming in that it's a done deal. The Cards will let the noon deadline pass and the Ricketts family will commit to him. It could be the missing piece to puzzle.

    Here is the team:

    Line-up:
    Castro SS r
    Fukudome CF l
    Pujols RF l - Pujols is very Athletic and fast for his size, he has a cannon for an arm and has played well in the OF
    ARam 3B r
    Pena 1B l
    Soriano LF r
    Soto C r
    Dewitt 2B l

    Rotation:
    Garza R - This kid is going to be a monster stud! Great pick up.
    Zambrano R - I am hopelessly optimissitic, but I think Pujols will have a positive influence on Z and Z will turn it around and be an ace like pitcher again
    Cashner R - Every great team has a break out youngster Cashner will be it for us.
    Dempster R - Not a bad 4th starter!
    Silva R - Was great in the last half of season

    Pen:
    Closer - Marmol: Unhittable when throwing strikes
    Set Up - Wood R and Marshall L - That is as good of a set-up tandem as you will get in ML
    R:
    Mateo
    Wells - Long-Relief

    L:
    Maine
    Grabow

    I am excited about the Cubs again!

    They can't even negotiate with him until after this season is over unless there is a trade and it hinders on him signing an extension.

    Cubs haven't won in 100 years...

    This won't make any difference

    The BoSox hadn't won in a long time either.

    103 years to be exact! But they have only been letting me down for 26 years (I didn't start watching them until I was 8)!

    Pujols is quickly migrating towards douche status in my book.

    I just read that he turned down 8 years $200 million from the Cards.

    For a contract that expires when he's 39 he's not worth THAT money let alone a contract that surpasses the AROD deal in dollars and years.

    Any team that gives him THAT deal is going to be choking on the second half of the contract.

    Just ask the Yankees. The AROD deal was a huge mistake. Such a contract for Pujols would be no different.
