Something To Think About...

On top of whatever general discord is afflicting us a fanbase for the upcoming 2009 season, I was thinking about something that doesn't need to be addressed quite yet but will creep up on us soon enough.

El Hombre's contract is guaranteed through 2010 with a $16 million club option for 2011. If the club picks that option up, I can only imagine how unhappy Albert might be... which brings me to this question:

How much money will it take to lock up Albert when his contract comes up? His current deal was made when the market was decidedly less expensive. I would assume that the Teixeira contract might be used as just a starting point. Are we talking ARod-type numbers? 10 years, $275 million?

Personally, I think the Cards should do whatever it takes to make sure he is a Cardinal for life. What say you?
