Albert Pujols: Baseball Job?

As of the first of May, 2012 Albert Pujols has not yet hit a homerun.  And the sports blogosphere has been going all chicken little due to the fact that Albert has been one of the most productive winners in the past decade of Major League Baseball.  Consider these stats:

  • 9-time MLB Allstar
  • 3-time  MVP (’05, ’08, ’09)
  • 2-time World Series Champion (’06, ’11)
  • 2001 Rookie of the Year
  • #37 in career homeruns
  • Selected as Greatest Baseball Player of 2000′s by ESPN.com
  • Leads all active players in career batting average (.328), slugging percentage (.617), and OPS (1.037).
