Why is Hamilton not seeing the love Pujols got?

It's amazing how differently the 2012 free agent market is playing out than it did in 2011. Last year at this time the Albert Pujols feedy frenzy was near its explosive end. Pujols waived off a reported $275-million, 10-year bid from the Marlins and a $220 million offer from the Cardinals to take a $240 million deal with the Angels.
