Pujols Signing Rumors & The Friday Links

It’s Friday!

Albert Pujols is finally signing with the Cardinals and making sure that history remembers one of its best as a redbird for life!!

Wait, what?

How can you have a celebratory press conference marking one of the biggest contracts in the history of the sport with the media relations team taking an extended weekend?


So, wait, JC isn’t right about this?

I think we all knew this was a publicity stunt from the gun. Why? Well, Corcoran claiming from the start that this wasn’t a media stunt is exhibit A. (See him blast “bloggers in their moms’ basement who keep telling him it’s a media stunt: LINK HERE) Or the fact that JC works IN the media where it serves his best interests to have people listening to his radio show or watching his online videos.

He mentions how crazy it is to pick up 1200 followers in a single day multiple times. People who don’t care about Twitter followers wouldn’t look at their Twitter followers and draw correlations between Tweets and new followers.

Then again, that makes too much sense.

No, Albert will still be a free agent come Saturday and JC will tell people that sometimes stories like this aren’t exactly right.

But let this be a lesson to all – One scoop does a trusted source not make. He got lucky with the TLR story and shoved his chips all in. After all, what did he have to lose? People are talking about JC Corcoran again in St. Louis.

In the end, that’s all he really cared about.
