I don't buy that. He didn't have protection last year either. Rolen was hurt and not himself and Edmonds had post concussion syndrome. Don't worry about Pujols.

Absolutely. This is a legitimate thread.

It's not a serious question or maybe a better way to say it is "it's not a question that deserves to be taken seriously".

Seeking an explanation at this point in the season for a player's performance is simply silly. Two weeks means nothing. There is simply not sufficient information to draw ANY valid conclusion about why a player has performed the way he has.

So, be patient, and wait.
Stop over analyzing things and wait.
Stop seeking meaningless explanations and wait.

Seriously.

Just stop.

That's a serious answer to a question that doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.

Albert Pujols, Cardinals: He was the first pick in 99.99992 percent of all non-keeper, non-auction drafts. As such, you probably have as much chance of prying him out of the clammy hands of his current owner as you do of participating in space travel. Nonetheless, here's my case for dealing Prince Albert away: He lacks lineup protection, with Scott Rolen struggling with back spasms and Jim Edmonds looking dizzy, to put it charitably. Additionally, unless David Eckstein and Chris Duncan morph into on-base machines, Pu won't have as many RBI opportunities as he did in years past.

I ain't sayin' he'll dip much below .320/35/110, but there are several first basemen (Teixeira, Morneau, Lee) and first-base-eligible guys (Berkman, Sheffield) who could approach that same plateau. If someone in your league will give you one of them along with a few other trinkets for Pu, pounce.


Yeah, this was essentially my point. I agree that it is way too early to worry, and he will likely bust out in a big way at any moment, but I just see the Cardinals lineup as particularly inept this year.

Lineup excuse is so lame. It is better than last year for sure.
