I would've given Pujols a 10 year deal 3 years ago. Now, not so much.

He can only blame himself for not asking for a restructured/extended deal earlier on. To think he is going to get 10 years when he is already in his 30s is not likely to happen. I love Pujols as a player and a man off the field but I can't stand the hardheadedness that he is showing now. Even if they gave him 200 million plus now he would still make over 300 million in the life of his career off of baseball. Pretty good for someone that said he would give professional baseball one year and if it didn't work out move on and do something else.

So do I. Not so fondly. I want to pull out the rest of what's left of my hair every time I hear that damn song. I'll have to settle for seeing 1 Orioles title in my lifetime.

Keep your man-love to yourself. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

I had actually forgotten about that annoying song, and I was definitely rooting for the O's in that series. Eddie Murray was a HOFer, of course, but Ken Singleton was awesome that series, and I was a big Palmer fan. Who else was on that team? Lee May, Mark Belanger, Paul Blair, Rick Dempsey, Mike Flanagan, Tippy and the other Martinez, Full Pack Stanhouse. I remember the Pirates better because I was a Cubs fan: Stargell, Foli, Madlock, Parker, Moreno (?), LF Robinson, Tekulve-Romo-lefty reliever. Hmm, maybe they're both a little fuzzy right now.

EDIT: Denny Martinez

Heh, well born of necessity. One guy in the Sports Forum accused me of stripping, and lord knows I've been labeled a tranny-lover enough times in the past month or so. I'm a live-and-let-live kinda guy, but I have my limits.

Buying some Phillies tickets today. It's too bad I have a 20% chance of seeing Joe Blanton and not Lee, Halladay, Hamels, or Oswalt.

I think they are ready to let him test the waters next winter and see what a few other clubs will offer him.
Can Pujols play left field?

Individual tickets aren't for sale yet, are they? We supposedly have an early start because of being IronPigs season ticket holders. But there isn't jack left. I refuse to sit in the upper decks. I'd rather do Standing Room Only.

It was for people on the emailing list. One day only today. Select individual game tix. Almost all the games that aren't a special game of some sort.

I got tix for game 2 in the first level in the outfield.

Closing due to the end of the offseason.

You can continue any Pujols or other issue discussions in the Spring Training Thread. Thanks.
