    Should Pujols wait another season to retire if doesn't reach 700 HR's this season?

    Pujols is 11 homers shy to get to 700 career home runs. Pujols said he will still retire if he is short to 700.

    What's your guy's opinion?

    I would return next season, make a small deal with my contract, reach to 700 and then retire.

    But Pujols has September to catch up so I'm hoping he gets to 700.

    probably will return, if he hits 3-5 more this season, would be hard for him not to return

    i would return if i was him as long as i was able to. he also needs the playing time to be able to get the homeruns needed.

    shame he did not have even 1 better season with the angels and he would be there already.

    700 is a huge accomplishment. too good to pass up in my opinion.

    Pujols rookie cards aren't worth shit yet. When he retires they will start to skyrocket though most likely. Maybe not a bad investment to pick up a few on Ebay right now.

    Topps traded Gold rookie card is about $150 right now in good condition.

    Why walk away when they will still pay you millions to keep playing? What else are you going to do with your life that will make you that much money for the job you love to play?

    You retire you get stuck at home 24/7 getting fat with your bratty kids and a nagging wife.

    I think Tom Brady had a taste of that and ran back to the game.

    He hits 700... you'll hear his name brought up in the Steroid Scandal.... I'm sure he'll love that.

    I really wouldn't want to hear this the rest of my life.... it would haunt him everywhere he goes.
