The details of Albert Pujols' contract with the Angels were revealed this week and they include some interesting perks:
* Four season tickets for the life of his contract (that's the 10-year, $240 million contract, of course)
* A hotel suite on road trips
* A luxury suite at the ballpark for the Pujols Foundation, his charitable group, for 10 home games a year
* The right to buy a luxury suite between first base and third base for all home games
Los Angeles' offer to Pujols surpassed St. Louis' offer by more than $40 million. Pujols played his first 11 seasons with the Cardinals.
The Angels' deal was so complicated that it includes three separate agreements: His playing contract, a marketing deal and an agreement to enter a 10-year, personal-services agreement following the playing contract's expiration or Pujols' retirement, whichever is later. That will pay $1 million annually, but because it is contingent on Pujols actually working for the team, it is not considered guaranteed money for the purposes of baseball's luxury tax.
