Let's talk about Pujols....

The best player in MLB for the last decade (and only 30).

Just hit his 400th home-run, 3rd youngest to that point. I hope he ends up breaking records. He may be on pace to be best pure hitter ever.

10 straight years with 32+ homers, 100+ RBI, and no lower than a .314 average in all of those years. ROTY award, 3 MVP's, 1 World Series Ring, 1 Gold Glove, 9 All-Star games, 1 batting championship, 1 HR championship.

He also hardly misses games, I think he's played like 143+ games each season.

And he's still with his original team. He's just a class act of a player and athlete.

Please excuse me while I am still a bit skeptical.......

Not his fault, just the way it is. He is the best player in baseball though. Guy is a monster. Hope nothing negative ever clouds how good he is.

He seems more worthy of that record than any of the others that have done it or come close so far...

If only I had the mind of a 7 year old, I would have notice that sooner. ;)

He is amazing.

And I share JR's opinion on his medicine cabinet.

Some of the people he has been associated with, trainers and sports medicine people, have been associated with the PED crowd.

Guilt by association, which is unfair, but there it is.

Only baseball player I 100% believe did not take roids is David Eckstein, although I firmly believe that he was popping amphetamines while they were allowed just like everyone else so there goes that.

They say 2010 is the year of the pitcher but in reality it is the year without amphetamines. Amazing what those little pills will do.

    • Those generally aren't set until August or so. No way of really telling the games that will be worth being nationally televised beyond the basic rivalries that are big draws anyway (Pens vs Caps, for example) until after all the roster moves get settled and coverage of practices and preseason games start giving everybody an idea of where teams are talent wise. I expect us to get at least a few NBC games, because our division has too many big draws for us to get completely shut out of national games.
    • By the by, Einstein, Brexit alone caused 338m in debt for Manchester United. A 27.5% increase in one fiscal quarter. See, if you can muster enough brain cells, you'd know the weakened pound plays a factor. No billionaire is gonna change the economy. So your insane theory about EPL money being a game changer for attracting all the elite stars and prospects fails... tremendously. Especially since the top producer in your league is fugged 2-3 years from now.  You better hope Brexit doesn't collapse either. Your precious billionaires would press that escape button ASAP leaving the EPL in horrible shape even with the TV money.  Those 'broke ass' Real and Barca fans won't have to worry about that. :)  
    •     Very white culture music.   Does @Bronn still have a small mancrush on Casey Abrams? (I still lowkey have a crush on Haley Reinhardt.)
