If this WAS Pujols' last game... you can not blame him
Pujols is probably going to return... The Cardinals could finally become a National Brand.
But it also makes sense if he says "I've done EVERYTHING I can possibly do in St. Louis. Maybe I need a new challenge."
The new owner of the Dodgers would want to show the fan base that they spend money on the team instead of on their homes. (And I assume they won't blame victims when they get beaten in their poorly lit and lightly secured parking lots.)
Bringing in Albert Pujols makes all the short term sense in the world for the Dodgers.
If he goes to Chavez Ravine, then I not only don't want to hear CARDINALS fans boo him but I also want to hear nobody in all of baseball boo him.
If he wants to get top dollar, he has done everything he could have possibly done in St. Louis.
