    Pujols with the bases loaded

    I hate giving a Cardinal props but after hearing these stats on Mike & Mike this morning I am just amazed. This season with the bases loaded Pujols is 7 for 9 with 24 RBI. Of those 7 hits, 5 were grand slams. In the 9 AB's he only swung and missed on 2 pitches! Knowing those stats now, I think with the bases loaded I'd rather take my chances by walking him even if it means giving up the lead since there is a 78% chance he is going to give his team the lead if he's allowed to hit and a 56% chance that he could be driving in 4 runs.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Re: Pujols with the bases loaded

    At work tonight, I was thinking that walking him with the bases loaded might not hurt as badly as pitching to him.
    I had no idea how crazy the stats really were.

    I think I'd walk him. That's only one run to make up.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I was watching that game, first thing I said was "big mistake, it'll be gone". Sure enough.


    There is really only one valid reason to hate Michigan football, and that is the fact that we taught Notre Dame the game.

    Re: Pujols with the bases loaded

    I have great respect for Pujols. The dude can hit. He said this week, that he has been struggling and is human, just like everyone else. I wonder about that.

    Re: Pujols with the bases loaded

    walk him or pitch around him... rather walk in a run than give up what he usualy does...

    Egos. Walking a guy with the bases loaded emasculates the manager and the pitcher. Won't happen much even if it's the correct call.
