Pujols: First Triple Crown in 39 Years?

Postby broomulack » Sat Apr 29, 2006 10:40 am

From the "isn't that obvious" department, Pujols is tracking to be the first triple crown winner since Yaz in 1967. I think he's going to do it - what do you all think?

This just in: the guy is amazing.

If I had to bet on someone doing it, it would be him. That said, it's April still, if he's leading all three in mid-August, I'll start to consider it. I think average might be the one that will be hardest to win.
I think the worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades...or a game of fake heart attack.

I think I'll agree with a comment that was attributed to Frank Robinson on the Cardinals TV broadcast last night.

You can't start thinking or talking about anyone winning the triple crown until September 1st. Keep in mind, it's not even May 1 yet.

This from a former Triple Crown winner.

I think average is going to be the easiest for him this year. RBI's will be the toughest. He's not going to get pitched to with men on base...it's just not going to happen.

And dammit, I just violated my own post by discussing this :-P

Gentlemen, I'm not a newbie like so many on the board appear to be. I'm not basing my prediction solely on this April, but on his career thus far. If I was predicting something of this magnitude soley on April, I'd have listed Lance Berkman as having a shot too. He's got no shot at all. Pujols will be up there in all three categories with a legitimate shot to do it, which is more than you can say for just about anyone else.

Agreed, it's early, but let's have little fun with the question rather than pointing out the obvious.

We can't have fun with this question because we're still in freaking APRIL!

I agree...I think this is a great thread to start on August 1, if he's still in the running.

You guys are like old women with no senses of humor - the question is, and remains, DO YOU THINK PUJOLS IS CAPABLE OF HITTING FOR A TRIPLE CROWN???????

You're probably the same guys that get on people for posing a borderline trade question in the wrong forum.

Lighten up. The board is here for this type of discussion.

Ok, my answer then is no...actually it's hell no.

And I never gripe about people posting in the wrong forum.
