Mr. Puljols only wants job security. That's all anybody else wants. Ask the boys in the front office if they're crazy? Sign him already!

The question I have is WHY has the front office waited so long and let this thing get down to the wire? Why didn't they wholeheartedly attempt to come to agreement with Pujols back in November?

However, I do understand the front office's reluctance to sign Pujols to a 10 year contract. I think Albert should maybe come down a few years on his contract. Who wants to pay a guy $30 a year when, by the time he is 40, may be hitting .266 with 22 homers and 73 RBI's?
