Happy birthday, Albert Pujols!

Albert Pujols (April 2012)

Today’s photo comes from one of the first games Pujols played for the Angels. The Cardinals really got the best of Albert. The Angels were fools for thinking he would be as good for them. He only played one more season for the Cardinals as he did the Angels, but he hit more than twice as many home runs for the Cardinals. His on-base percentage was 109 points higher for the Cardinals! His average WAR with the Cardinals was 7 and it was only 1 for the Angels. The Cardinals paid him just over $100M and the Angels? $240M. Ouch! Sometimes you don’t get what you pay for.
