Cardinals' Albert Pujols Says He Still Plans to Retire After Season in the midst of 700-HR Chase

Albert Pujols is drawing nearer to the 700-grand slam achievement, yet the St. 

Louis Cardinals veteran doesn't want to return for another season in the event that he misses the mark.

The 42-year-old sits four short of Alex Rodriguez for fourth in significant association history.

In the event that he can pass A-Rod, the subsequent stage would be turning into the fourth player ever with 700 grand slams, joining Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714).

"This is all there is to it for me. This is my last run," he said.

The slugger repeated his aim to resign on Saturday, not with standing a fast kid about his new achievement.

"On the off chance that I can't hit 70 homers, I'm not returning," Pujols said. "No, I've had enough.

I'm happy I made the declaration this was all there was to it when I marked. Truly, I wouldn't modify anything."

For those counting at home, the Cardinals have 43 ordinary season games remaining.
