Once upon a time Albert Pujols was worth every penny and the Angels made that clear in 2012 when they signed the then 32-year old to a ten-year, $240 million contract that would last until 2021. When his contract will finally be finished, the slugger will be past the age of 40. It’s a nice contract for Albert, but the Angels missed Pujols’ prime, and now his contract, which still has five more seasons after 2017, is seen as one of the biggest failures. The Machine may have hit home run no. 600 this season, but his numbers aren’t what they used to be. He’s batting .241/.287/.393 as of the start of the second half of the season.
