The Albert Pujols home run watch remains lost and empty, much like the portly first baseman’s plate approach. As of today, he’s batting .202 with no home runs, obviously, and five RBI to go along with a saggy boob of an OPS, which currently sits alone in the dark at .524. Last night, Al B. Sure was 0-for-3 in a 5-0 loss to the Blue Jays. Of course he was.
The Angels remain in last place all by their lonesome with a record of 10-16, and find themselves 7.5 games back of the loaded Rangers. On the bright side, Jered Weaver threw a no-hitter a few nights ago, stealing the spotlight away from Pujols’ awful season for approximately 11 minutes. So there’s that.
