A day after being activated — but seeing no playing time — Albert Pujols is back in the Cardinals’ lineup, batting third and playing first base.

Whatever we can say about his quick recovery, if I were the opposition, I’d certainly want to test just how recovered he is.  I certainly wouldn’t want to hit the guy or anything — we’re not savages here — but I’d probably feed him a steady diet of hard inside stuff to see just how strong that wrist is. And then he’d probably hit, like, three homers, but that’s why I’m not a pitching coach or a manager or whatever.

Anyway, welcome back El Hombre.

    He doesn’t feel pity, or remorse!

    And he will not stop…EVER…until he’s batting at least .320 with 40 home runs and 120 RBIs!

    Craig you need Photoshop skills, you should have had Pujols face super-imposed in one of those Terminator scenes where the machine is fixing its own hand.
