Albert Pujols tells the Brewers: “no champagne for you just yet”

A ten game lead is a big freakin’ lead this time of the year. Even if the Cardinals were to sweep the Brewers in the present series and do so again when they meet in St. Louis next week, Milwaukee would still have a pretty good lead in the division.

But ya gotta start somewhere, right?

It’s still going on — indeed, it’s only in the third inning —  but right now the Cardinals lead the Brewers 6-0 in the concluding game of their three-game series in Milwaukee.  Albert Pujols has hit two home runs in his first two at bats, one of which was a moon shot out to where Bernie Brewer’s slide is, the second a grand slam.

I’m still skeptical that the Cards have the giddyup to catch the Brewers. But sometimes things happen that make you hmmmmmm.

    Have you learned nothing from the Red Sox and Yankees?

    pujols is a jackass. pretending to give a fan the ball after the 3rd out and taking it back is a completely classless move.

    maybe if ron roenicke removes his head from his ass and plays taylor green over mcgehee then we can get more production in the lineup.

      Moron: There were TWO outs…count em’…TWO outs. He could NOT give the guy the ball because again…there were TWO outs. Further, with the way this billigerantly drunk ass “fan” has been harassing him all year when the Cardinals are in town (to the point of getting thrown out of HIS OWN STADIUM)…I would have done the same thing had there been three outs. But again…there were TWO outs. Now your schizophrenic Centerfielder…when he did the SAME THING in St. Louis…there were three outs. But your biased ass doesn’t want to discuss that huh?

    Furcal has lead off two games in a row with a homerun. Anyone have the numbers on that? New record? Tied?

    Frucal? Furcal? Anyone? Furcal?

      He’s got his OPS all the way to .594! Another couple home runs and it will be merely really terrible instead of embarrassingly god awful!

    Did Pujols actually say that? That would be great. Since the Reds-Cardinals rivalry has fizzled this year, it would be great to replace it with something meaningful.

    Six runs aren’t enough when all the umpires are out to get Tony La Russa.

    • bravesman1983 - Sep 1, 2011 at 5:24 PM

      Just ask Tony La Russa.

    That’d be 8-3 now….Gallardo sucks against the cards, I shoulda benched his ass! C’est la vie…Brett Lawrie is still my hero

    We’re on track to set a record for most comments without mentioning a certain subject. Have we found the kryptonite? Is there nothing here they can latch onto?

    It seems that Pujols’ impending free-agency has been forgotten after his slow start. This is the biggest free-agent-to-be since A-Rod circa 2000.

    Man, Pujols is a MONSTER.

    By the end of the year, he’ll have over 100 RBIs and will be batting over .300 after his slow start and injury.

    The dude’s inhuman. Just amazing.

    did no one get the c+c music factory reference?

    He’s no Ryan Howard, that’s for sure.

      That was just for bcopus, wasn’t it

    • stlouis1baseball - Sep 2, 2011 at 9:29 AM

      Hahahah! I would have to agree. He is definately no Ryan Howard (thankfully).
