Happy birthday to the oldest Halo, Albert Pujols

Happy birthday to the oldest Halo, Albert Pujols

I’ve been feeling old lately. When I turned 36 last September, I was a few months into some nagging gym injuries that doctors assure me is just normal wear and tear, which must have seemed liked well-mannered reassurance coming from their end, but served as the opposite. Wear and tear? That happens? Then there was the winter beard I grew these past few months; it was as bushy and burly as ever, only now, to my dismay, it was also littered with gray hairs. The hair on my head is also trying to go gray on me, too, to be honest. Although, due to the cul-de-sac situation I’ve had going on...

Converting Matt Thaiss to a third baseman just makes sense

Converting Matt Thaiss to a third baseman just makes sense

Between first base and DH, Thaiss is blocked at the big league level by C.J. Cron and Albert Pujols. With their first round pick of the 2016 draft, the Angels selected Matt Thaiss with the 16th overall pick, to the universal dismay of Angels fans everywhere. The Angels had just drafted Taylor Ward with their 2015 first round pick the year before, and sorely needed to “hit” on draft picks in order to boost both the minor league system and the major league product. Drafting another catcher in the first round did absolutely nothing to quell fears that the Angels are “throwing” away the...

2017 could finally be the year C.J. Cron emerges as the slugger we’d all hoped for

2017 could finally be the year C.J. Cron emerges as the slugger we’d all hoped for

Back in 2012, the Angels (at the behest of owner Arte Moreno) signed a guy named Albert Pujols to a staggering deal that would see Pujols collecting upwards of $30 million in the year 2021. In the years since, we’ve been treated to an aging and ailing former-MVP who struggles mightily to reach those lofty stats of his prime, but can still hit some dingers. At the time of the signing, you’d think that the Halos had one thing in mind: a powerful slugging machine who can take care of 1B duties for the foreseeable future. Since then, however, Pujols’ feet have given out, and he’s fresh...

The people behind some of Albert Pujols’s biggest home runs

The people behind some of Albert Pujols’s biggest home runs

As in literally right behind him. Absence makes the heart grow fonder but I’m certain I didn’t Albert Pujols enough. Watching one of the greatest baseball players of all-time in the right clothing is a true and rare luxury and in that respect I miss prime Albert Pujols every day. So, Albert, if I took you for granted, I’m sorry. I will say one thing though: I never failed to appreciate how much opponents feared him. I had a roommate in the early aughts who cheered for another NL Central squad and I recall him saying in a panic when Pujols stepped up to the plate, “My god, that guy...
