Albert Pujols Contract Deadline Passes
Another contract extension failed to get resolved with Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Wednesday deadline was not met and his agent commented on the situation, saying that talks between the home-run first baseman and the Cardinals ended Wednesday without any kind of satisfying resolution.
This means that Pujols will not be talking about a new contract until the very end of this season. His agent stated that although both parties wanted to be able to wrap things up and reach a resolution, the talks did not yield any progress whatsoever.
The Cardinals lost a precious window of time to sign a deal with the home-run star that has yielded so many wins for the team in the past.
General Manager John Mozeliak would not talk about the discussions regarding Pujol’s contract, nor would Bill DeWitt Jr. who is the Chairman for the team.
It appears as though despite their best efforts, the star player and the Cardinals were not able to reach a resolution by the end of Wednesday which was the deadline for contract talks.
Mozeliak added that they felt good about the deal that was put on the table, but Pujols simply did not accept due to the fact that the offer did not meet his own requirements.
