As one would expect, Albert Pujols didn’t immediately have much to say about whether Friday’s Game 7 victory was his last game as a Cardinal:
You know what? I’m not even thinking about that. I’m thinking about, you know, we’re the world champions and I’m going to celebrate and whenever that time comes, you know, then we’ll deal with it. But right now, you know, I enjoy this. You never know when it’s going to be your last one so I’m going to enjoy this one like the same way that I did my first one. So thank you to all the fans for the support.
Pujols had a decidedly odd World Series. Apart from his five-hit, three-homer outburst in Game 3, he went 1-for-19 with no RBI. He did walk six times, though. In Game 7, he came around to score after both a walk and a HBP.
Pujols, of course, is a free agent for the first time this winter, and he could be in line for the third $200 million contract (and first not signed by Alex Rodriguez) in baseball history. The Rangers, Cubs, Nationals and Angels are a few of the teams that may weigh putting in a bid for the three-time NL MVP.
