The Marlins, Cubs, Rangers and Angels were all reportedly interested in Pujols and of course the Cardinals wanted to bring him back to St. Louis.

Brown called into "The Dan Patrick Show" on Thursday and talked about the deal:

Are you wondering exactly how much Pujols will be making with this deal? CNBC's Darren Rovell crunched the numbers:

Now, you would think signing Pujols would be enough for the Angels, but FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that the team is also interested in pitcher C.J. Wilson.

Honda Road Ahead: Can Cubs slow down Nationals bats?

Honda Road Ahead: Can Cubs slow down Nationals bats?

CSN's David Kaplan and David DeJesus discuss the upcoming matchups in this edition of the Cubs Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland & NW Indiana Honda Dealers.

Maybe a four-game series with the N.L. East-leading Washington Nationals will help the Cubs take off. 

It did last year. 

The Cubs swept the Nats early last season, boosting themselves into first place in the National League - a position they wouldn't relinquish. More than a sweep, though, a positive series is vital for a team that continues to hover around .500. 

To do so, Joe Maddon's pitchers must somehow slow the Nationals offense, which has managed to push across more runs than any team in the majors. 

After D.C., the Cubs are off to Cincy for a three-game set with the Reds. 

Watch David Kaplan and David DeJesus preview the upcoming matchups in the video above.
