It's not a serious question or maybe a better way to say it is "it's not a question that deserves to be taken seriously".

Seeking an explanation at this point in the season for a player's performance is simply silly. Two weeks means nothing. There is simply not sufficient information to draw ANY valid conclusion about why a player has performed the way he has.

So, be patient, and wait.
Stop over analyzing things and wait.
Stop seeking meaningless explanations and wait.

Seriously.

Just stop.

That's a serious answer to a question that doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.


Yea I know two weeks mean nothing.I am just sayin I could use his production. It is early, I know. I am currently in 4th place in a 14 team league. What place I am in means absolutely nothing. Let me say that before I get bashed. Its just that I just dont want to get down to far in the hitting categories.That is why I am asking. I also have Sheffield on my team and he is in a slump also.I will be in great shape once they start doing their thing but I would like them to start hitting sooner than later.with that being said what do you think his final stat line will be?

If you are so unhappy then move him for something you want. Very simple.

"What's up with Albert" is perhaps a reasonable question after 2 weeks.

But clueless Joe has been posting this since day 2! And no matter how many people have told him it'll all be ok, he won't stop. It's driving us mad, I tell you! Mad!! :-S

And seriously man, if you're not happy with Pujols, trade him. What do you want us to do? Call him and tell him to start hitting the ball?

I think it's logical to assume that he is in a slump (decrease, decline, or recession in hitting), can also be described as a cold streak. It often happens to MLB hitters, even ones that transcend the statistics of your average hitter. I think it's also logical to assume that he will not bat .154 for the entire season, and that once he cathes fire (begins a "hot streak"), he'll be pretty hard to stop.

I think that just about covers it, the thread can be locked. ;-7

his problem is he has zero protection in the line up. Nothing.
Rolen is hitting under .200, Edmonds is hitting like .230
He is also extending his strike zone and pushing to do something.
It happened for a while last year too, and he ended up pulling everything to 3B.
just my opinion

He is getting pitched around and walked often

How is the line up better this year?

Eck
Duncan (only hald the time)
Pujols
Rolen (hitting under .200)
Preston Wilson/Scott Spezio (need I say more?)
Edmonds (barley over .200, no rbi, no HR)
Molina
Kennedy
Pitcher

Jaun is hurt, half the time we have WIlson and Taguchi out there. Neither should be starting much less both.
Duncan is the only guy showing any power right now and he sits against lefties (mostly so far)

I tend to agree here, and apparently so does the guy who wrote that article that was quoted. The no protection argument is pretty basic and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that St. Louis needs Rolen/Edmonds to turn it around or else Pujols will not be properly protected. Whether or not it effects his production over the course of the season remains to be seen, but I don't think the lineup (right now, anyway) will afford him many RBI opportunities.

His lineup is getting no protection. Albert is hitting .176.

Um, no. I don't blame people for using this argument, it just tells me they aren't Cardinal fans. Nothing wrong with that, I don't expect everyone to be a fan of my team.

Anyway, Pujols had MUCH... MUCH worse production at other points in his career. There have been many times when Edmonds and Rolen were injured at the same time and Pujols has hit extremely well. He's just that good. He's so good in fact, that 2 weeks of stats here at the beginning of the season mean nothing and he'll be fine.

I agree with a couple posters in this thread. This isn't a serious fantasy baseball question. It's a very poor fantasy baseball question. A very fundamental point to learn in FB. Stick with your stud hitters. They come around, with the exception of Adrian Beltre. Pujols, like all other slumping superstars, will start hitting well. Most likely when the temperature spikes above 60 degrees.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
