Albert Pujols on the Cardinals front office: “they know what they did”

Albert Pujols spends a lot of this interview with Jon Paul Morosi talking about his contentment in life and stuff, and how he has great relations with folks from his Cardinals days, but he still apparently holds some grudges against the Cardinals front office about how they handled things when he left town:

“I think the only thing I’m bitter about is the way the front office handled it a little bit. I think they should have handled it a little better. I’m bitter about that. They tried to make me look like I was a bad guy. But that’s OK. I’m a big boy. Besides that, I also understand there’s nothing I can do. Even if I could take it back, I’m happy where I am right now. My goal is to focus and concentrate on what I need to do to help this ballclub win.”

So what, exactly, did the Cardinals’ front office do?

“It’s something I don’t want to talk about,” he said. “They know what they did. I don’t need to talk about that.”

Oh. Good. Because it would be bad if you mentioned something about that.

    I think if my new employer paid me several hundred million dollars, I’d be pretty quick to forget about whatever my old employer did to slight me.

    By “they know what they did”, Albert means “they cut ties with a guy who was about to fall off the cliff injury-wise, managed to remain an elite team, and saddled the Angels with an albatross for 10 years”.
