At some point we need some kind of barometer to decide that a guy either used PEDs or didn't use PEDs.

This is my simple barometer, and I believe it would make things a lot easier on everyone:

You fail a test, you used, and I don't care what your excuse is. You admit to having used - even once - you used, and your accomplishments are thereby tainted. (And, yes, I'm looking at you, Andy Pettitte, and particularly your extremely unusual 2005).

Beyond that, it's all idle speculation, similar to the parlor game of trying to guess which celebrities have ever smoked pot, coked up, or shot up. It's entertaining, makes for a fun drinking game, but doesn't prove a thing beyond what we want it or don't want it to prove.

Not good.

Willie Mays has said he would have used PEDs.

But what are the odds the guy hasn't/doesn't use PEDs?

I guess because Williams and Thomas walked more...?

Ted Williams isn't a comp?

I bet it's their shared HR/SO that makes DiMaggio such a high comp.

(I'm also surprised Frank Thomas isn't in those lists.)

Last year he had a 190 OPS+ and many said it was his greatest season at the plate or atleast since 2003 when he had more ABs and similar rate stats. This year, so far, he has exceeded both of those seasons.

One of the coolest things about Albert is his comps by Age. From his rookie year through 2007 was Joe DiMaggio. After 2008 it was Jimmie Foxx. That's of course because Mr. Coffee missed his age 28-30 seasons due to WWII. Now, at least we have someone to model those years off.

The rest of his current top 10 after XX are:
Hank Aaron
Frank Robinson
Lou Gehrig
Ken Griffey Jr.
Mickey Mantle
Joe DiMaggio
Juan Gonzalez
Mel Ott and
Hal Trosky

The list reminds me that Griffey was tremendous through age 31, when he started getting hurt with regularity. Juan Gonzalez came up young and was a great power hitter for many years - he really didn't excel outside of power even when he hit for high average. Trosky had his career cut short due to WWII also. He really wasn't anything like Pujols in terms of overall production.

Saw 13 pitches last night and the first eight of them were intentional balls.

The next five were strikes.

In the fourth, now down 5-zip, Verlander came right at Albert and struck him out on three pitches.

In the sixth, with the score now 10-1 and Albert leading off, Ryan Perry tried to do the same.

Strike (foul).

After the next pitch the score was 11-1.
