Albert Pujols for Ryan Howard? Let's just say the MVP sluggers don't plan to pack their bags anytime soon.
Bet 2010 World Series Odds
Talk of a megatrade kept baseball buzzing Monday following an ESPN report the Philadelphia Phillies were thinking about asking the St. Louis Cardinals if they'd like to swap star first basemen.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. denied his team had discussed a trade and used ``lies'' and ``ridiculous'' and ``irresponsible'' to describe the report, which ESPN based on unidentified sources.
Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said he hasn't spoken to Pujols about the rumors and doesn't plan to unless the player brings it up.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Cardinals 13/1 to win the 2010 World Series and the Phillies 6/1.
