From Albert's wife, we now have the math.

The Angels offered $254 million for 10 years, none of it deferred.

The Cardinal offered $210 for 10, with $30 million deferred.

Sounds like, in the next 10 years, a $77 million home-town discount.

Almost $8 million per year.

Apparently, the Cardinals' first offer was $130 million for five years.

"When you have somebody say 'We want you to be a Cardinal for life' and only offer you a five-year deal," his wife told a St. Louis radio station, "it kind of confused us."

As well it should have.

And perhaps was designed to?

Diminishing range? Really? Would seem to me increasing range to his right. (Of course, if we don't know how many assists he had to other than the pitcher, we don't know if he's gained confidence/skill in his throwing.)

I have no idea if this means what he says it does, but it's an interesting fact:

Buster Olney: "And here's a subtle number that some evaluators took note of: Pujols' number of assists, which have grown steadily: 97 ('05), 110 ('06), 124 ('07), 135 ('08), 185 ('09), 157 ('10), 177 ('11). Those numbers are being read as a sign of his diminishing range at first base, as he relies more and more on the pitcher to cover first base rather than taking the ball to the bag himself."

Okay, I agree. He'll be fine as long as his body holds up.

Miguel Cabrera and Adrian Gonzalez have both done fine in the AL. They're more recent examples.

And, in a couple years we're taking Joey Votto too.

Frank Robinson was able to handle the AL. Nothing's changed.
