As the Giants were wrapping up the NL West, thanks to Buster Posey’s 8th inning smash to left center, I read a stat on the MLB Network ticker that noted Albert Pujols had finished the season with a .312 average. Are you ready for this? That is a career-low (gasp!) for Phat Albert. Isn’t it sad to see a once magnificent, great player in such decline? St. Louis management may want to look into offers for their former superstar before they can’t get anything of value back.
Wait, what?!!?? A .312 average is a career low? Jesus, this guy is so fucking awesome. He’s only the only player in the history of Major League Baseball to record a .300-plus average, 30-plus homers, 100-plus RBIs, 30-plus doubles and 99 or more runs in all of his first ten seasons. Shiiiiiit!
Maybe with this downturn in production I can finally get ahold of him in one of my fantasy drafts next year.
