Albert Pujols, Angels Agree To 10-Year Contract, According To Report

At last, the Albert Pujols sweepstakes is over, according to Tim Brown at Yahoo:

Source: Pujols will sign with Angels for 10 years for between $250 and $260 million. Full no-trade. Pujols decided Thursday morning.

And according to Buster Olney as well:

Pujols to the angels, done, sources say

As Brown stated, it will include a full no-trade clause and, at $250 to $260 million, will have an average annual value of between $25 and $26 million. It won’t quite make Pujols the highest-paid player in MLB history; Alex Rodriguez’s current contract, which also runs for 10 years, has an AAV of $27.5 million. A-Rod’s first 10-year deal, which he signed with the Rangers, had an AAV of $25.2 million; this deal might come close to that.

There has been no official announcement of this deal yet, just the tweets, but obviously we will have much more here at Baseball Nation later.

Edit: The final deal will be worth $254 million, according to Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal.
