Can't argue that!

He also is being cheered on by Not The Best Fans In Baseball.

I assume you mean Yankee fans. What is wrong with Yankee fans? We're like any other fan. We root for a team that has competed in the post season 57 times, won 40 AL championships and 27 World Series. If we're entitled and arrogant fans I think we earned it.

I guess we are not really like any other fan.

With advances in analytics, super high speed cameras, and pitching academies, the position is even more important.

I'd argue that the pitching coach is more important than the manager, especially with the 3 batter rule, DH, etc. 

The rule changes essentially gutted Craigtember.

I think having a leaky bullpen messed with Craigtember more than anything. I'm too lazy to look it up, but I'd bet they have lost more games from leading positions after the 6th inning this year than the 2018, 2019 and 2021 combined.

No need for teal with the truth my fellow Yankee fan!

...and don't forget placing a runner on 2nd base after the 9th inning.

I don't have a dog in the ongoing Cubs - Cards debate, but I do note that this guy is in the Cards' organization. Doh!

Pretty typical of the Cardinals.  Between the draft dodgers, roiders and straight up cheaters, it’s a disgraceful organization from the top down

They need a complete overhaul of the pen next year. There are only a couple guys worth keeping.

Yes. They clearly hit those home runs. You have a point there.

No he didn’t according to the people who actually run the Tour.

Bonds et. al. hit those HRs according to MLB.

But Lance did participate in 7 tours de France where no one else got first.

Stating facts means I’m a pedant?  MLB recognizes that 73 is the single season record for HRs in a season. The Tour does not recognize any Lance championships.

It’s not hard.

Congrats to Albert Pujols.  With a little effort and a lot of skinless chicken, you too  can hit 700 HRs.

Pujols had 4 home runs to start July, and did not homer the entire month of June.  His 5th home run was July 10th. He was hitting .189 on July 4th.

Now for a better than a month he’s one of the best power hitters in the game. 

Sure.  Hooray Alberta.

Another aggravated Cubs fan who just realized it will be 102 more years before the next Cubs World Championship. A Championship that maybe his elderly grandchildren, God willing, might see?

Ya'll need to enjoy it. Period. Watch an organization that treats its fans right! That tries to put a team on the field that may not win everyday, but is built to compete.

Albert has been a special ballplayer to us. Yeah, we sure wished we'd kept him in 2011, but the cost of doing so would have broke the bank and inevitably cost the Cardinals in other areas. We're just delighted he's back and wearing the uniform of the birds on bat.

Steriods/PEDs? Hardly? Grit and determination -- and maybe some good coaching? Probably!!!!!

Winning: It's the Cardinal way!!!!!!!

Yes. The 13th round draft pick who was coming up through the Cardinals’ system as Mark McGuire was in the bigs is now at 700 home runs through “grit and determination…and maybe some good coaching.” Lol.

Pujols hasn't hit more than 30 HRs in a season in 7 years, since his mid 30s.  He hit just over 1 HR a month for the first 5 month of the season.  Then at age 42, he has hit 14 in a month and a half in 120 ABs and its just grit and determination?  Anyone who thinks it seems peculiar is just a jealous (insert team name) hater?  OKKKK.

In the last 40 years, the Cardinals have 1 more WS than the Cubs.  3 teams have won more in that time frame.  7 have won as many rings, including vaunted franchises like the Marlins and Royals. Unfortunately they don't treat their fans properly.  Crowing about titles that happened before color TV and bringing up a Cubs WS drought that was broken barely 5 years ago is as lame as early 20s Yankees fans who can barely remember the 2009 WS screaming about "27 RINGS!!!"

Congratulations to arguably the best hitter of his generation on a monumental accomplishment.
