Is that what the Cardinals are attempting to do? Planning for life without Albert? Part of me believes that is the current philosophy of the Front Office. Let’s examine.
Berkman singing is for one year but he is insurance of we cut AP loose.
Now they have been linked to kicking the tires of Michael Young. Whoa, this is $16M per year we are talking about. We snagged him and the current total salary is rooftop like. How can we do that and keep Albert Pujols? We can’t.
So they look at Young for what other reason? Somebody explain how and why the Cardinals would do that.
Let’s face it that Young, Holliday and Berkman could be formidable if needed.
disclaimer- I am not advocating cutting strings with Albert Pujols but I am wondering if they are working on Plan B, or is it Plan C, maybe D…who knows.
