Here's The Newspaper Ad Albert Pujols Took Out To Thank St. Louis FansS

It's become almost expected for itinerant athletes to go the newspaper ad route when leaving town, and at this point free agency might be the only thing keeping print media alive. Pujols took out a full-page ad on C10 of today's Post-Dispatch fondly reminiscing on his time in St. Louis, but the typical PR boilerplate rings a little hollow for some. Still, Pujols didn't have to do anything, and Cardinal fans have been remarkably realistic about this whole situation so far, so we don't expect St. Louis to burn to the ground. Yet.
