Cubs GM Hendry, Pujols say hug no big deal
Question of the Day
CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs general manager Jim Hendry brushed off the hubbub over a hug with Cardinals' star Albert Pujols before Tuesday night's series opener.
Pujols, the Cardinals' superstar first baseman, could be a prized free agent after the season. Hendry said the greeting had nothing to do with business and the two simply discussed their families.
"I have a good relationship with Albert," Hendry said. "We'd have that if he wasn't the best player in the world. I told you guys in spring training I wasn't going to be any different to him than I have been in the last eight or nine years. Great guy, great player."
Pujols told the St. Louis Post Dispatch the hug was much ado over nothing. It was just a greeting between two people who respect each other.
"He's on the other side. I'm on our side. I just think it's kind of ridiculous," he said.
The Cubs' current first baseman, Carlos Pena, is playing under a one-year, $10 million contract.
