Could the Los Angeles Angels trade Albert Pujols away for literally nothing in return? (I’m assuming that all of this contract is guaranteed).

I’m pretty sure the answer is no, which I suppose means that in the strange world of baseball economics Pujols is now less than worthless. (MPowell points out in comments that in the wonderful world of the efficient market, Pujols’ contract *should* be “worthless” in this sense on the day he signs it. A more useful version of this question would be something like “how much of his contract would the LAA have to eat to get another team to take it off their hands today?)
