Pujols looks like he's aged 5 years in the past 2. His reflexes to my eye are noticably slower. Tonight is the first time I've really watched him though. He looks slightly ill, deflated. I think something is up.

He's being weighed down by his wallet.

Thus far I've seen no reason to think he's going to start pitching well soon.
He's still getting swinging strikes but his velocity is down 2mph. I'm not liking it.

But he's just as physically intimidating...I think it's just very obvious looking at the guy swing that his swing is flawed right now mechanically...it is not the same tempo, weight distribution & transfer..and he's pressing his ass off to go along with it

Don't look now but Broxton is most likely about to blow this save..

Closer thread is getting extra work this year..unreal

Edit: NVM..Marky Mark DP'd him

they had something on Pujols on PTI I think it was earlier this week. I can't remember exactly what was said but the guy they were talking to in 5 good minutes said something like Pujols was being overly cautious on pitches inside and then when the pitch is outside he swings and can't reach it or he can't drive it when he does make contact.

Multiple sources confirming Rivera has a torn ACL. :~( I hate the Yankees as much as anyone and this is the worst baseball news I've heard all year. What a horrible way for a legend like Mo to end his career. Maybe he'll come back for one last year because of how this happened?
