Pujols' contract with Angels contains perks



Guess $240 million wasn’t quite enough for Albert Pujols. In addition to his salary, the Los Angeles Angels are giving the slugger four season tickets to home games over the next decade.

He and the Angels still need to work out the location of the seats, which are his to enjoy for the duration of his contract. After that, if he still wants them, he has to pay.

Those details were contained in the terms of his deal that was filed Thursday with Major League Baseball and the players’ association.

Cabrera took a deal that spares him jail time. Charges of resisting an officer without violence and having an open container in a vehicle were dropped. The first baseman was arrested in Fort Pierce in February after refusing to take a field sobriety test.


RAMIREZ: Manny Ramirez intends to work out for teams later this month in an attempt to return to the major leagues, a source told ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney. It is not yet known which teams are interested in Ramirez.

Ramirez retired last April after he was hit with a 100-game ban for a second violation of baseball’s drug policy. He was reinstated from baseball’s voluntary retirement list last month after he agreed to serve a 50-game ban rather than the 100-game ban for repeat offenders. His suspension will begin as soon as he signs with any team.
