Since ESPN only likes to kick guys when they’re down, we’ll go ahead and alert you that Albert Pujols is currently hotter than Megan Fox motorboating Salma Hayek’s tig ol’ bitties. Even this umpire can’t help but check out the slugger’s poop shoot.
It wasn’t too long ago that people were questioning his ability. In fact, the four-letter’s David Schoenfield wrote an article on how Pujols was no longer baseball’s best hitter after his horrific April. On June 4th, the Angels’ first baseman was hitting .236 with 8 home runs, 23 runs, and 30 RBI. Two months later, Pujols is hitting .288 with 23 home runs, 61 runs, and 74 RBI.
In fact, since the All-Star break nobody in baseball has more home runs or RBI or has a higher SLG % or OPS. I would say, David Schoenfield, that would make him baseball’s best hitter in that time frame. And his last five games have been absolutely retarded, or like that lazy-eyed turd Stuart Scott would say, we should “holla at a playa when you see him on the street.” Let’s dissect that for a second. Isn’t that how you get shot? Anyway, over his last five games Albert is 11 for 24 (.458) with 5 home runs, 8 runs, and 11 RBI.
Maybe with all of the attention on Albert’s stud teammate Mike Trout, he has been able to relax and just play the game that he has made his bitch for the last twelve years. Or maybe Albert Pujols is what most of us thought he was over the past 12 years and still is today. He’s the best hitter in the game…
