Pujols Seeking A-Rod Money?

Yesterday we learned that the Cardinals' brass planned to sit down with Albert Pujols' agent Dan Lozano and discuss an extension to keep the game's best player in St. Louis.

Today, SI's Jon Heyman tweets that the Cardinal slugger is thought to be looking for the type of contract that Alex Rodriguez received to stay in New York. A-Rod inked a 10-year, $275MM contract back in December of 2007 at the age of 32, so it would be no surprise to see Pujols, 31 in January, making similar demands.

Pujols boasts a career line of .331/.426/.624 with 408 home runs and three NL MVP awards to his name. He finished second in this year's voting to Joey Votto, his fourth runner-up finish.
