The Cardinals have yet to make an offer to Pujols. Does this mean anything?

Well, they haven’t made a “concrete offer,” anyway. That according to Tim Brown of Yahoo!, who sets the scene a week from the start of Spring Training and the promised cutoff of negotiations.

As Brown notes, Pujols has issued a virtual fatwah on negotiations through the media.  The Cardinals have said a bit more here and there. But this news — no offer made — doesn’t exactly help the Cardinals in the court of public opinion, so I question whether that would have come from them. It might help Pujols though. Probably would, actually, if fans get mad because they think the team isn’t making a hard push to lock up the best player most of them have ever cheered for.

Makes me wonder if Pujols — or his agent —  has changed tactics and is starting to leak a bit.  And if so, does that mean that the conversations between the sides have gotten rough?

    If the Pujols leaves and lands with the Cubs, will this curse the Cards so that they never win a W.S. for the next 70+ years AND bring an end to the Cubs curse?

    I can’t imagine talks ever go well when someone is asking for 300 mil (allegedly)

    With the $$$ involved, the Cardinals are no doubt wanting to confirm that Pujols is in the best shape of his life before making a concrete offer.
