Pujols to consider Cardinals' contract extension

BY foxsports • October 15, 2009

Slugger Albert Pujols says the St. Louis Cardinals are interested in extending his contract during the winter, but that he is not in a rush to make a decision. He told a Dominican radio station on Wednesday that he still has a year left on his contract for 2010 and a club option for 2011 and that he will leave the rest in God's hands. Pujols signed a seven-year contract in 2003 worth $100 million, but says money is not a priority for his next contract. He says he prefers to play for a competitive team that can advance to the postseason. The 29-year-old hit .327 with 47 home runs and 135 RBIs this season for the Cardinals and is tipped to be named the National League's most valuable player.
