It didn’t take Albert Pujols long to address yesterday’s contract deadline, even though he’d basically begged the media to leave him alone on the subject.

Pujols today said, “what do I want? I want to be a cardinal forever.”

Apparently Pujols didn’t want that enough to accept the Cardinals’ offer that reportedly would have paid him about $20 million a year — a slap in the face — but he doesn’t seem at all eager to leave St. Louis.
