Albert Pujols‘ legendary career is in the home stretch.
After hitting home run No. 700 on Friday in Los Angeles, there’s little left for Pujols to accomplish, but one last ring as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals would certainly be a plus, especially with Yadier Molina also on his way out, and potentially Adam Wainwright as well.
Obviously, Pujols has received a solid farewell tour from opposing teams, with each providing him with a little gift.
But Derrick Goold had a special story about Pujols and Yadier Molina in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, featuring columns and photos commemorating these two legends’ epic careers.

Cards Writer Honors Pujols
Pujols has been through it all with the Cardinals.
He was there when some of the greatest to ever wear the Birds on the Bat came up to the big leagues, including Wainwright and Molina.
He’s been a part of so many historic moments in Cardinals history.
Now, there’s a special little story about him and his friendship with Yadier Molina in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Cards fan base will certainly miss Pujols, but are fortunate to have had a chance to see him play out his final season in Cardinal Red.
When he initially left St. Louis, there were Cardinals fans hoping and praying that he would one day return for one last ride.
Not only did he return, but he went on a tear and created even more memorable moments with the Cardinals that fans got to experience.
Everybody around baseball has taken the time to honor Pujols and what he has meant to the game.
His place in history is solidified by those who got to see him up close and all the great moments that he was a part of.NEXT: The Cardinals Are On The Brink Of Another Banner
