Some Angel fans just seem a little pissed....http://www.angelswin.com/forum/forums/t ... 44&start=1
My excitment about Pujols is gone. Flat out, the guy kinda sucks so far as an Angel
Carlos Gonzalez got more RBI's in one innin than Pujols has all year
Kinda sucks so far? Kinda?
He has been horrible in the month of April.
Don't get me wrong, I know he will get better, but he has been PATHETIC this month.
At least he fits in with his sucky team mates.
Imagine if he hits like 11 homers all year. Seriously, just imagine it. The entire fanbase would have an aneurysm thinking about the next 9 years.
Yeah I'm not excited about pujols anymore. You just gotta hope at some point he starts hitting. This whole team has no life, down 4 in the 9th and they all sit in the dugout with their hands on their heads.
this is exactly the thread i was look for.. &^@% YOU Pujols! please retire you lying bastard... you know you are 37 - 38 .....
Is Arte paying him a quarter of a billion dollars for his personality?
I think it hurts even more with Matt Kemp just crushing it up the road and stealing all the thunder from us. Thats what gets to me most. It should be us dominating and the Dogs struggling.
"The Pujols kinda sucks hard."
I'd be shocked if he's in the lineup tomorrow night.
Yeah, I'm over all the "we got Pujols" BS!
We got Pujols for the next 9 years, 5 months.
Plus 10 years after that as a team representative.
The good news: it really is still early in the grand scheme of things. If he hits .314 over his next 500 AB, he can still end up at .300 for the year.
(Hey, I'm just looking for anything right now...)
&^@% Albert Pujols. I'm sure he's eventually going to turn it around and I'll start loving him again, but we finally get an "elite hitter" at the cost of the second largest contract in sports history, and he's putting up worse numbers than Wells at a time when we need him the most.
I miss mo vaughn.
El Hombre seems to be El Garbage...
Now...I was the world's largest AP fan (apologies to Cardinalgirl) and I thought there may be a period of adjustment, I never thought it would be what it has. Having watched him for 11 years...very closely, I am befuddled as to what is wrong.
- Why is he trying to pull every pitch? He never did this while with the Birds on the Bat
- Why is he getting into so many pitcher's counts? Seems every AB he's 0-1 or 0-2
- Why is he expanding his strike zone? In his heyday, he had the best eyes of anyone...he wouldnt take garbage and would mash hitters counts
- Where is his power??
On the bright side...with his not hitting at least he isnt hitting a GIDP to the SS.
Why would anyone think it's just a slump when he's faced garbage pitchers most of us on this forum could hit in like 80% of these games. How many quality pitchers have the Angele seen thru these games? Like 4? The whole team is making junk pitchers look like Cy Young winners.
What really hurts is that Matt Carpenter, the rookie first baseman who replaced him in St. Louis, has 14 RBI already.
