Pujols and Cardinals to resume Contract talks after Season

Albert Pujols' self imposed deadline to sign a new contract with the St. Louis Cardinals passed on Wednesday so they will wait until the end of the season to resume negotiations.
The three time MVP wants to have the richest contract in MLB history, which has caused tension between him and the Cardinals, who are trying to get the best value for him, according to ESPN.
The contract that Pujols wants is 10 years and $300 million, which would be the largest contract in league history, according to Sports Illustrated.
The 31 year old slugger is a nine time all-star and three time MVP. The 10 year contract would end when he is 42 years old, which is fairly old for baseball. The length is one of the things the Cardinals don't like about Pujols' preferred contract.
