    Comments on Pujols To Angels For $250 Million

    1. MJ Recanati
      December 8th, 2011 | 11:48 am

      Amazing how owners never learn from their own, or others’, mistakes.

      Also amazing is that the Angels just dropped $327.5M on Pujols and CJ Wilson and the Marlins spent $191M on Reyes, Heath Bell and Buehrle just a few weeks after owners were trying to negotiate a CBA that would provide them with cost certainty. Hilariously transparent, those owners.
