Albert Pujols Will Veto Any Trade By Cardinals, According To Report

With the Albert Pujols contract deadline looming and contract talks ongoing between him and the Cardinals, the once-crazy idea of trading Pujols certainly must have come up in board rooms not only in St. Louis but also around the country. Plenty of teams would love to acquire his services, if only for one season.

If that’s the case, they’ll most likely have to wait another year because Pujols will not accept any trade going forward, according to sources.

This means there are only two possible results in the negotiations in the Pujols talks: Either he signs a contract extension with the Cardinals, or he will become a free agent this coming fall.

As a 10 and 5 guy, Pujols has the right to block any trade that his team tries to make. Of course, if the situation gets tenuous enough and the right situation pops up, you never know. But chances are this is one more sign the team and the player will work it out.

To follow along with the negotiations, stay tuned to this StoryStream, and keep an eye on Viva El Birdos.
