Pujols looks 65 to me. Oh wait, that's how many RBI he has already.
For what its worth, I am one of those who think he is considerably older than he claims to be. And not just because he "looks" older, but because he has shown an incredibly mature power-and-skills set that is virtually unheard of at ANY age, let along at 22 or 23. I guess he could be a freak of nature, but when it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, etc.
It is easier than people think to fake birth documents in "third world" countries like the DR -- especially when it comes to athletes that excel at a young age and start to follow the "path" to going pro at an early age, as I understand Pujols did. These guys -- and their parents -- are not dumb and know how to game the system (and the system doesn't really care much that its being gamed).
Case in point: Here in NY, there was a scandal a few years back over little league star Danny Almonte, who turned out to be two years older than he claimed to be, which gave him a tremendous advantage. And we know that Alphonzo Soriano's age was bumped two years after 9-11 when it was discovered that he was older than claimed.
Not that I blame any of these guys. What would you do if pro baseball was a ticket to wealth and prosperity, and all you had to do was change one number on your birth docs? Damn, I spent my teenage years lying about my age to get into 21-and-over bars and clubs and to date 21-year-old chicks.
Hell, its probably not too difficult to fake birth documents here in the USA. All you really need to do is kick the year of birth back a few years. Its just one number.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
