Pujols' slow start

Postby reynolds80 » Tue May 08, 2007 3:22 pm

Albert Pujols

Career OPS: 1.040

2007 OPS, night games: .622 in 57 at bats
2007 OPS, day games: 1.030 in 55 at bats

Grasping at straws here for an explanation... When will he heat up?

It's probably a combination of bad luck and a minor injury issue (I've heard whispers that the oblique problem that's hurt him the last few years is back). You can't trade him and you can't bench him so just ride it out.

If anyone in a league with me is concerned about Pujols, I'll take him off your hands and even give you something of value in return. ;-D

This is probably thread number 12 on the year and your not going to get any different responses then the previous 11.

Please trade him to me or quit complaining.

It's weird. So far this season in the daytime, he's vintage Pujols. At night he's Neifi Perez.

Probably just a coincidence.

So Card fans are whispering about his oblique? Any truth to this and could he wind up on the DL?

What if I just want to discuss a baseball player with other baseball fans in real time? Or if I already read all 11 threads via the search function but just wasn't satisfied with the content?

That Alfred Pujols is washed up. Don't concern yourself with that hack anymore - his best playing days are behind him and he will never produce at a high level ever again.

Then bump up the most recent of those 11 threads instead of starting yet another one. :-b ;-D


EDIT: Here's the most recent one:

Last post was Sunday. This is Tuesday. 2 days. Not like this is a topic that hasn't been discussed in weeks or months. ;-)
