Pujols Angry Over All-Star Benching

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Albert Pujols was not happy about not getting to play in the All-Star game last night. While the AL used only 27 of its players and the NL used 28, it had to sting that it was his own manager, Tony LaRussa who left him on the bench. He and Texas SS Michael Young were the only postion players to not get in the game. Pujols said, "He (LaRussa) does whatever he wants. If I wasn't expecting to play, I wouldn't have come up here." LaRussa said he held the currently-cold slugger(he hasn't hit a home run in his last 74-at bats) in case the game went into extra innings. Using that logic, someone had to be held for late in the game but Pujols, by his own manager?

He's not on roids. I'd be mad too if the game was on the line and stupid La Russa wouldn't put him in because he wanted to use him in the "10th". Newsflash: You can't get to the tenth til you score some runs!!!!
