When the preliminary counts came in for the NL first basemen, Albert Pujols was the leading the pack by a-freakin’-lot. However, that was all based on mindless following and an absurd continuation of the expectations of the past rather than an understanding of the present.
All that is a long-winded way to say that Pujols is having a truly shitty May. Let’s compare the true All Star, Joey Votto, to “Prince” Albert for this month so far:
That’s right: Pujols’ SLG is .384 in the month of May. Is that All Star caliber? Is it??
Let your voice be heard, and let it be heard to say that actual performance is more important than a big name. Vote Votto!
