Pujols 40/20?

Postby MaudDib » Fri May 01, 2009 11:01 pm

I know it is only one month but Pujols with 4 SB. That is crazy. I know he had 16 back in 05 but no one thought he would repeat that number. Now he is on pace for close to 50 HR and 20 SB. Anyone think he can do this?

He stole 2 in one game against the Mets the other night. He seems to only go when he's dead certain he's going to make it. I think we see 13 - 16 or so from him on the season.

I expect 13-17 from him as well, but it look's like he is capable of 20-25. He could surprise us, but unlikely

As someone who is a big Cardinal's fan and watched Pujols play on many occasions, this man is not a great baserunner. I love his work ethic, he's a favorite player of mine, but he needs to stop trying to steal second.

He's 49/26 on his career, and this is mostly due to a 2005 when no one paid attention to him (16/2).

I think the 40 number is very realistic however. He did that for 4 straight years and has tailed off the last 2. This isn't to say he was declining, just the HR's slipped. 45/10 would be my bet on the year.
...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
