Albert Pujols SIgns 10-Year, $250 Million Deal With Angels

Albert Pujols is headed to the American League after agreeing to a 10-year, $250 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels early this morning.  Included in the deal is a full no-trade clause, meaning the Angels are essentially stuck with the 32-year old for the entire deal, one that will keep Pujols in California until his early 40's.

The Cleveland Indians were never in the bidding for Pujols, but that doesn't mean you can't check him out at Progressive Field this season.  The Angels will be making two trips to Cleveland, the first coming in a 3-game series from April 27-29.

The Angels will make their second visit the the North Coast from July 2-4, playing a game on Independence Day. The Indians will visit the Angels in Anaheim just once, from August 13-15.

Many had thought Pujuols would be returning to the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals after talks with the Miami Marlins broke down, but St. Louis had little desire to match the Angels in years or dollars.
