Albert Pujols and the Cardinals have “resumed” contract negotiations, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Strauss reports that general manager John Mozeliak and agent Dan Lozano agreed last month “to keep talks confidential,” but quotes “several sources familiar with the process” as saying the talks have a “positive” tone.

Pujols will become a free agent after this year and has indicated he won’t negotiate once the season starts, so Strauss writes that “the Cardinals are attaching significantly more urgency to negotiating a potential record extension” compared to their unsuccessful talks last winter.

    Wait a minute. His agent is Lozano, not Boras!

    What’s the conversation likely to go like?

    “Jayson Werth got 18/yr, Crawford got 20/yr…what do you think I want? Let’s start at 30 and work our way up.”
