Brett Lawrie did not say Albert Pujols called KC ‘bush league’

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Angel Stadium Brett Lawrie didn’t say Albert Pujols called the Royals “bush league.” That was an erroneous interpretation of Lawrie’s comments following the Royals’ suspensions on Tuesday. Two media outlets, including The Chronicle, thought Lawrie said that Pujols had told him the Royals do “bush-league stuff,” when in fact by that point, Lawrie was discussing himself – he was saying that’s how the Royals behave, rather than Pujols, two distinct sentences rather than one. Here is what Lawrie said: “I talked to Albert Pujols at...

Force is Weak in Angels Loss to Sith Oakland

The sequels better be better than tonight. Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 3 Athletics 6 On a night that the ineptitude of the Angels marketing division alienated every fan who did not type JEDI along the ticketmaster ordering path, the product on the field quashed the enthusiasm of everyone else. Matt Shoemaker had no feel for his pitches and it showed. Meanwhile the Angels battled early with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols each going 2 for 2 in their first two plate appearances. Both starting pitchers were gone before the end of the fourth but Oakland had a 5-3 lead and managed to put out the...

Watch the first homer of Albert Pujols's career

On Wednesday Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim first baseman/designated hitter and former St. Louis Cardinals great Albert Pujols whacked his 521st career home run.

Thursday Halolinks: Albert Pujols hits HR 521 in win

Albert Pujols joined some elite players with his 521st career home run. It always seems like I'm apologizing about something while writing these Halolinks posts.  If it's not having enough time to do a good job due to remodeling, or internet outages, or skill, something always seems to get in the way of a top-notch post.  However, today's apology has nothing to do with Halolinks.  Nope, I've spread my ineptness to other parts of this site.  I received an email from Rev asking if I could do any of the postgame write-ups while he was in Texas (yes, Rev is in the heart of enemy...
