Albert Pujols, Cardinals move deadline for a deal to Wednesday

By Cindy Boren

Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to move their deadline for a contract extension from Tuesday to noon Wednesday because Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial is being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday at the White House.

"Tomorrow is a very big day for Stan Musial," Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak said via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It wouldn't make any sense to have a large distraction on that special day given the amount of respect we have for that man. It only made sense to make sure that we didn't have a whole lot of things going on given the events tomorrow in Washington."

Previously, the deadline for a deal for Pujols, who can become a free agent after the season, was Tuesday night.

Comments

This reader feels Albert Pujols name let alone contract negotiations should not even be an issue mentioned whenever it comes to an article surrounding the great Stan Musial.
This reader feels Albert Pujols is worthless to his team and team mates as long as he continues to support this self centered attitude he has.
The Cards need to let Albert Pujols and his self centered attitude go, and in turn spend there money on other more deserving athletes.
