The St. Louis Cardinals have won six of their past eight games, but they’ve done it with only three RBIs from Albert Pujols. King Albert is not in a slump, exactly. Teams are just not pitching to him. If teams are able to avoid pitching to Pujols, they will. If I were facing the Cardinals’ lineup, he wouldn’t get anything to hit. Even with men on first and second, I’d consider third base open and still probably pitch around him. That’s how good a hitter he is. He has put up some sterling statistics in his career, but without much protection in the lineup, even future Hall of Famers’ numbers can start to suffer. His on-base percentage is still sky high. Before Tuesday, he had been walked twice in each of the last four games. That had been the longest streak since Barry Bonds. He is starting to receive the Bonds/Mark McGwire treatment and his RBI totals are down this year. -ESPN

Albert is not very controversial.. Maybe after he gets caught juicing like barry he will be.-TO
