A fan's proposal for a reasonable Pujols contract

Albert wants a contract comparable to to the one that made Alex Rodriguez the highest paid player in baseball history. The Cardinals want a deal that they can live with. Here it is: Albert gets $26 million a year for 10 years. For the first seven years $5 million per season is deferred without interest. For the last three years, $15 million is deferred without interest. Pujols gets $5 million per year upon his retirement for 16 years.
