Pujols: "1-run Sac Flies are for Little Girly Men"

Despite a great catch by the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez, Albert Pujols managed to drive in two runs on one sacrifice fly this afternoon in St. Louis. Pujols is hitting .333/.455/.682 for an OPS+ of 197 (!) so far on the season, and remains on pace for 50+ homers, 35+ doubles, 130+ walks (against less than 60 SO), ~180 hits, ~130 runs, ~150 RBIs, nearly 400 TB, and—perhaps most astonishing of all—20 stolen bases.

Those readers (do we even have readers?) who remember my Pujols post from April 28th will note that he remains on pretty much the same comically absurd pace six weeks further into the season.

Tune in next week when Pujols will hit a home run while playing defense.

  1. The Cards only two runs of the game. They lost 7-2. Pujols only came up with runners on one other time and they gave him an intentional walk.
