Pujols Slump


Recommended Posts

It's still early, but this is quite a slow start for Pujols...


By far his worst month in his entire career...



Albert Pujols went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's shutout loss to the Indians.

Since ending an 0-for-21 skid on Thursday, Pujols is just 2-for-12 with a pair of singles. Meanwhile, his season-beginning homer-less streak is now at 22 games, putting the Angels' $250 million man in danger of the first bomb-free month of his 12-year career (not counting March and October, of course). "It's still early," of course, but a .216/.266/.295 month for the game's best player is troubling after he set career lows in average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage last season.

Yeah, that's what I meant.


He's not going to be the same player he was during his prime years, but he didn't just suddenly forget how to hit.


His power will comeback at some point. Surprising he's not getting more hits considering he's hitting line drives 25% of the time so far this year.
