Q: What's the extent of Albert Pujols' injury situation, particularly his elbow?
A: Obviously, right when the season ended, he took some time off. Then during one of his workouts he felt some discomfort. I think both our doctors and other professionals felt that, as long as he did his due diligence and maintained his pregame preparation, he should be OK.
Q: What are the expectations of Pujols now?
A: One of the things that�s a way to look at our club positively is we never really had anybody have a career year last year.
When you look at it in terms of what we can expect of players, a guy like Pujols, if he trends back to where he was in past years, that�s obviously a big plus for us. But even the year he had, he still had a great year. I think there are lot of guys out there that have some potential for some upside, and that�s what makes it exciting for us.http://www.news-leader.com/apps/pbcs.dl ... 002/SPORTS
