The Cubs only jumped into the Pujols thing - in my opinion - to see if they could drive up the price per year and pay the Cards back for interviewing Chicago legend Ryne Sandberg for their managerial job.

Agree.  I think, after what they've said, the Cardinals can't get into a bidding war for Fielder, as they're just replacing Albert with a slightly younger, slightly slower model. If they can get him for reasonable money though...
