Either this was under the table talk of "get me some help or I am out of here" or he is pretty certain to resign with the Cardinals. I also wouldn't be surprised if he takes a discount knowing that the more he gets paid the less help he gets.
I prefer to think of it as taking away leverage from Boras.
With all due respect to Matt, Albert respects Matt and would love to have him as a teammate and hopes he gets his money, but Matt’s situation must be seen as independent of Albert’s,” said Pujols’ lead agent, Dan Lozano, of Beverly Hills Sports Council.
Boras can't beat the drum anymore that Pujols might not come back if Holliday isn't signed.
