Albert Pujols is healthy. He is fully recovered from the plantar fasciitis and knee woes that derailed his 2013 season. For the season, he is batting .290 with nine homers and 21 RBI over his first 101 at-bats. While it’s great to see one of my all-time favorite hitters flourish again, the numbers tell me he is ready for some regression, particularly in the power department.

Thomas Sherrill, from Pomona, CA, reportedly wouldn’t turn down something else from the Angels, however.
The Detroit Tigers just extended Miguel Cabrera for an obscene $248 million over eight years. Combine this extension with the two years and $44 million left on his current deal, plus two vesting options for an additional 11th and 12th year at $30 million apiece, and you get a 12-year, $352 million contract.
“I know people are tired of athletes saying they are innocent, asking for the public to believe in them, only to have their sins exposed later down the road. But I am not one of those athletes, and I will not stand to have my name and my family’s name, dragged through the mud.” Pfff, ok, ya, right, ok…
Clark, the former National League slugger, says that Pujols’ former personal trainer told him a decade ago that Pujols used steroids. The trainer today denied it.
When the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Angels face off tonight, Albert Pujols is going to be seeing some of his former teammates and coaches for the first time in two years, and something tells me that they don’t miss him as much as you might think.
With all the talk of PEDs dominating the baseball landscape right now, you may be looking for an escape from it all. To many the conversation has grown tiresome, and it seems like there is no escaping the dialogue that has swallowed the sports media whole. Fantasy sports is your answer.
Albert Pujols took a lot of money and jumped ship for the Los Angeles Angeles this past offseason. The Los Angeles Angels did not make the playoffs. The Saint Louis Cardinals, his former team, are currently playing in Game 3 of the ALCS and are three wins away from the World Series. This probably makes Albert Pujols sad.
There must have been something in the air last night, because this is the second strange baseball-related ejection that we’ve come across today. See what happened here after the jump.
