Albert is an Angel, however if you ask many fans of the World Champion Cardinals, the devil made him do it. The devil on his shoulder was the king's ransom the Angels gave him to leave the greatest baseball city in America. He is quoted as saying it was never the money! Hmmm....... Sorry I am not buying it.
One thing for sure, I am looking forward to taking my family to Roger Dean Stadium this spring for Cardinals baseball without the overhang of, will Albert sign, what will we do if he doesn't, blah, blah, blah. The overhang last year was apparent daily and I for one am glad it is over. Best of luck to you Albert. Time to move on for us. We will take our 11th World Series Championship along with all the players that want to play for the St Louis Cardinals and work towards number 12 in 2012!
