And they say the Yankees are ruining baseball...
and it also now makes sense why negotiations with Pujols last off season broke off when the Marlins would not include a no trade clause - he and his agent were pretty aware of what leaving the no trade out could have meant and likely would have meant had he signed there

Also, Tigers sign Tori Hunter for 2 years
