From Rotoworld:

Pujols left Tuesday's game in the bottom of the seventh inning with cramping in his left calf.

Spin: The Cards were holding onto a 6-2 lead at the time, so we'll see if this was a precaution, or if he happened to make his previous calf ailment worse. Pujols was 1-for-3 with a homer before being replaced by Joe Mather.

Considering the fact that I've already been reading on the cafe that he was "carried" off the field, that precaution speculation is down right comical...

Well, I'm a Pujols owner and quite concerned. My next best option in the infield is Brendan Harris (16-team mixed) so I'm wondering who would take up the time for him if he goes on the DL.
Will always help in return (leave a link to your question in response)

WGN is saying its just a strain....for now.

I would think we will have to wait until tomorrow to find out the true severity of the calf issue.

Best guess..7-10 days.

They need to DL him. That is the same calf that has been bothering him the last week or so. If they want him to finish strong then he needs to be rested.

This guy is a great FBB player but he is starting to get on my nerves. Seems any day now Im going to read some press release saying he is on the 60 DL or season ending surgery. Guess the only bright spot is this isnt his elbow we are all worried about.

I'm sure Pujols cares about what you think about him "getting on your nerves." Players get injured, it's part of the game.
