I can't understand why people are pitching to this man, especially with the ineffectiveness of Edmonds and Rolen's brittleness in that cardinal lineup. Went deep for his 18th in the first inning against the Rox this afternoon.

Hawk is right about the ball being juiced. Pujols just reached out, flicked the bat with one hand and jacked that ball out. Unreal.

I think this guy is awesome for the game, compared to what Bonds is going through.......He is simply a great player, and I'm glad he is not in the AL central

Damn if he can stay healthy and keep this pace, we won't need to worry about Bonds being in the top 2 of all-time home run hitters.

ditto for A-Rod.

Must be the same reason why pitchers kept pitching to Sammy Sosa when he was hitting all those homeruns instead of pitching around him to get to the weaker lineup.

The new Busch is more homer-friendly, but still...I have Pujols and Ortiz as my two big sticks in the HR derby I'm in.

If there is anyone other than Pujols out there that can potentially break Aaron's (or Bonds :(: ) career HR record, let me know. He could be the best I've ever seen.

I have your answer. Because hes in the Bogus NATIONAL LEAGUE, home of really dumb baseball. They dont believe in pitching inside, brushing back hitters, or pitching around people. Did you notice when Thome went on a rampage, people started making adjustments to him and he didnt homer for a while, but now Thome has adjusted to the adjustments and hes powering the ball again.

Arod has as good a chance as Pujols. He's 30 and has 435 Home runs. He's averaged over 45 home runs a year for the last 8 years, so if he keeps up the pace, he'll reach it in 7-8 years. However, if he drops off production as he gets older, and he plays past 40, he can still reach it pretty easily.

Pujols has 219 HRs, but he's only 26 right now. If you look at their careers, him and ARod actually have pretty similar home run numbers, with Pujols' being a little bit higher, but Arod starting a year younger.

Pujols(age) Arod(age)
37 (21) 36 (20)
34 (22) 23
43 (23) 42
46 (24) 42
41 (25) 41
18 (26) 52

Soriano hit a 492 foot homer. Come on. Don't tell me he's "wirey"...

There have been many other ridiculous homers too so far. Something's gotta be going on.

In other words, something's juiced, and it's not the baseballs. :cool:
