The Dumbest Article Ever Written By a Cubs Fan/STL Post Dispatch Writer

This has to be the most ridiculous article i've ever read.

Bill McClellan Is a writer for the post dispatch, he doesn't write often about sports (mostly because he's no st louis sports fan) and often writes about some breaking news stories, economy, politics, etc.  And some of his articles i've read have been pretty decent reads.  But his article on the subject of trading Pujols is utterly mad.

I can see some people eyeing that if there is a chance pujols goes to free agency and goes somewhere for the money, St. Louis probably wouldn't be the #1 money place, so why not trade him for money saving prospects instead of losing him to free agency.  But this isn't just a franchise player we're talking about.  It's Albert Pujols, easily the best player of the last decade and one of the greatest baseball players of all time.  The last thing the cardinals front office wants is the worst public relations move ever made in franchise history by moving pujols.

The article is laughable as Mcclellan writes about pujols' numbers going down as he's having a "down year" but-every-other-player-wishes-he-has-pujols'-numbers, and believes a straight up trade of PUJOLS FOR ZAMBRANO is well worth the trade.

Does McClellan not know about Zambrano?  Does he not know what's happened with his numbers in his last 3 years of pitching?  Does he not know about Zambrano being a CANCER to that clubhouse and being put on the restricted list by the Cubs?

To belittle Pujols' numbers, suggesting he's going downhill, say he's a bit of a hot head and not even mention Zambrano's clubhouse actions and then say Pujols should be traded to the CUBS is utterly disgraceful to any cardinals fan, and anyone who reads the St. Louis Post Dispatch
