Time to Trade for Albert?

Sure, he's out for 4-6 weeks, but NH has to be thinking, "That Overpaid guy isn't working out so hot and the blog mob is still on my case because I didn't trade for Lars F^^^ing Anderson. Where can I get a 1B to end the season on an upward trend?"  And it could make sense because...

...nothing puts fannies in the seats, and money in the Nuttings' pockets, for eventual use in upgrading the amenities at their private lodge in Seven Springs, like home runs flying out of PNC park.  "Pitch for show, hit homers for dough," or something like that. Wouldn't it be nice if some of those homers flying out were hit by the home team? 

   The great thing is that this is the kind of trade that could help us keep near .500 this year and Big Albert hitting grand slam home runs driving home Tabata, Cutch, and Walker would "wow" the home crowd so thoroughly that no one would worry about are record next year, or the year after, or the year after that - and when ever Pujols came to town in a Phillies or Cardinals or Cubs uniform, or we saw him on TV in a Yankees or Red Sox uniform, we could say, "for one brief, shining, glorious fall, Albert Pujols was a Pittsburgh Pirate."

   I think we could get this done with Allie (who still has prospect potential but has been middling at best at State College), Overbay (we'd eat his salary and make the trade now, giving the Cardinals a 1B), Sanchez, Rudy Owens and any two Zachs currently in our farm system (any spelling; the Cardinals pitching coach is a genius who can get the most out of these guys), and lifetime passes to Seven Springs for all Cardinals owners, management, and their heirs, in perpetuity.   

  So, did I miss any cliche about making a trade?  More importantly, is a pitchfork-wielding, torch-waving mob searching for Trogluddite's lair in the near future?
