This whole not having Albert Pujols retire with the St. Louis Cardinals thing keeps getting easier and easier. It was announced on Thursday that former Cardinal killer Carlos Beltran signed with St. Louis on Thursday with the signing being announced sometime after the holidays.
A free agent outfielder who most recently played for the San Francisco Giants after being traded from the New York Mets last year, Beltran hit a combined .300 for the two teams with 22 home runs and 84 RBIs in 142 games.
