Its a complete hack job by Wright Thompson taking things that were quoted in a laughing and joking context and making them out to be scathing attacks.
KC Star article wrote:“He said I wasn’t going to make the big leagues,” Pujols said, laughing, in the Cardinals clubhouse. “That’s why he got fired.”
Why did he get fired, if it wasn't for making Pujols upset?
“We made some decisions to go into a different direction in our scouting,” said Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty. “We rearranged some of our scouts, we let a few go, we hired a few ones, and Dave was a casualty of that restructure of our scouting. There were some scouts who were less productive than others.”
