Albert Pujols, he’s the best player in baseball, he has been for some time now. He’s also the best first basemen in baseball, and to Cardinal Nation and the city of St.Louis, he’s like Superman. But Now, Superman is out for at least 4-6 weeks with what the doctors say is a non-displaced fracture of his left forearm. Even though Albert has not been getting the same numbers he usually does this year, this still hurts bad. Anytime your team loses your best player it’s gonna hurt you in some way. For the Cardinals it’s going to hurt us a lot offensively, losing Albert is gonna leave a huge hole in our lineup. The good news however is we still have a duo that has been hitting great so far this season. That duo of course is Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman. Those 2 guys are the main reason I believe that losing Albert will not hurt us standings wise, our pitching while it’s been far from perfect has not been horrible either, and we’ve other guys who can also come up big offensively, guys like Colby Rasmus, Jon Jay, Ryan Theriot has been getting on base a lot, even Skip Shumaker like he showed the world yesterday can come up big. So yes, losing Albert will hurt us, but I still think we should be taken seriously in the NL Central, and once Albert does come back and he’s fully healthy again, Watch out Baseball.
That’s all for now, I’ll be going to the Cardinals-Orioles game on June 28th and I cannot wait to see the Cards in person again!!! I’ll be sure to blog about it sometime next week, until then feel free to comment and thank you so much for reading
