#7 in early play tonight. Somebody has remembered how to hit now that he doesn't have Mickey Hatcher ruining his swing anymore. 6 in 11 games since Hatcher's dismissal unless he hits more tonight.

I saw him in a Midwest league game and he looked like a man playing with a bunch of kids. I saw ARod too playing in that league and he looked every bit the 18 yr. old. I didn't know there questions about Albert's age.

Probably just a coincidence; but since Trout hit his 1st HR Pujols has a .273/.321/.519 line and a K% of under 10% with a .234 BABIP.

Entering Memorial Day weekend ZiPs projects Pujols to finish .268/.339/.476 with 30 HR. Not bad numbers for mere mortal man. Terrible for Pujols.

But, that's a rest of season projection of .287/.368/.524 which is not outrageous coming off last season's figures and his first 7 weeks of this season.

While I have heard some discussion about it, I am surprised more people haven't mentioned the age question. Pujols' age has always been debated in some circles, and when you look at his annual progression since 2008, it is a pretty consistent decline. Now, nobody expected this year's numbers (or should expect moving forward), but if per chance he is really 35 instead of 32, it puts things into a very different light, especially considering his 10 year contract, which looks like an albatross of epic proportions should this slide not be reversed.

Be that as it may, let history record that entering the Memorial Day weekend, Albert Pujols' slash stats are .227/.273/.373.

His tater yesterday was to right center on an 0-2 pitch. That's the swing he should be taking on every pitch, but I'm not sure even now he's learned the lesson.

My theory is that Albert Pujol's mojo somehow got lost when Albert moved to California, and ended up in Bryan LaHair for a month or so. Woke up one morning and realized it was in the wrong body, and headed back its rightful owner.

And over the last 10 games, the mojo-less LaHair has responded by batting .069 with 1 HR and 1 RBI...

5 HR in the 10 games since Mickey Hatcher was removed.

Crushed one off Vargas in the first. No doubter. I think he's turning his HRs around and with a good week will have 10 and nobody will notice he had a horrible first month. But, it will take longer for his BAvg to catch up. K/BB is the stat that looks totally out of place.

A HR for the second day in a row without Mickey Hatcher. Coincidence yes. Correlation yes. Causation not too likely. But, I'm sure Angels sports radio will be all over it. I said it in jest yesterday, but today it's a trend.
