Kinda like throwing a fan base and organization under the bus as a player, Albert? Hope you hit about .220 this year and the Angels don't even sniff the playoffs and the Cards celebrate #12
Honestly, I was fine with him leaving for the amt. of $ they gave him and had no hard feelings, but the way he's still sprouting off, really starting to dislike the guy
In reading that article, it really looks like that quote referenced the Miami Marlins, not the Cards. He didn't seem to have too many bad things to say about the Cardinals organization in that article, other than the fan reaction.
That's what I thought. Seems like a pretty straight forward article.
I don't know if I know someone who hates Albert for not staying. I think a lot of people were saddened to see him go, but understand why he went and why the Cardinals didn't make a large contract offer. To many it made perfect business sense for both sides to do what they chose to do. It sucks, but it made sense.
