Pending free agency of Albert Pujols will be major story for Cardinals

The Albert Pujols contract saga has dominated the Cardinals offseason and will be a major story throughout the season.  This despite Albert's insistence that he will not negotiate during the season:
"I won't re-open them during the season. Look at this. This is going to be a distraction all year. Come on, man. It's not rocket science. ... It's a zoo. I don't think my teammates deserve that. I have too much respect for my team."
There are plenty of Yankee and Red Sox haters that say he will go to one of these A.L. East juggernauts, and others theorists have him heading to the Cubs or the Angels, but the Dominican Baseball Guy predicts he will resign with the Cardinals in the end.  They need him and Albert just strikes as the kind of person that is happy playing in a mid-size market, especially Saint Louis where he has a major charity foundation and many other ties.

We will all see at the end of the season, but he will surely put up another MVP-worthy performance this season.  Albert is from Santo Domingo, DR.
