The Huffington Post recently caught up with the St. Louis Cardinals, going all-access inside the clubhouse and in the dugout during their series with the Mets.
We caught up with future Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa to discuss the state of the team -- and specifically, the state of Albert Pujols' contract negotiations.
Speaking of Pujols, we also caught up with the three-time NL MVP and free agent-to-be, who seldom does one-on-one interviews. Pujols talked about his love for La Russa and just how much it's meant playing for him over the course of his 11-year big league career. But did he hint at his contract or not?
WATCH below for Part II of our series with Mark McGwire and All-Star Lance Berkman.
