The HR derby didn't affect him one bit.  Three HR and two doubles last night in the doubleheader.

Good thing he's hitting homers because his BAPIP is very unlucky.

Every morning I wake up, look at my stats, and see a HR or two after I have gone to bed. Undoubtably, it's Albert.  His HR are catching up to his K's.  23 HR against 27 Ks.  Since the end of April he has 20 HR and 16 Ks.  June, he's been outrageous.  12 HR against only 4 Ks.  

I need to start staying up later when I don't have a pitcher going out West.

I just noticed to today he's leading the AL in home runs. I had no idea.

He's had an outstanding two weeks since I complained about his pitch recognition.  If he can only get his BABIP to .265 he'll have a hell of a season at this pace.  RBI and Runs lagging, but mostly due to low batting average, I would think.

Hit number 15 today in the first off Sabathia.

For those of us that invested in Pujols this year we are especially satisfied with the ROI so far. I am thinking the Angels will be wise and will continue to slot him in the DH more often than not. The AVG and SLG have been on a steady climb of late.

Oops. Just won the game when the Padres walked Trout in the bottom of the ninth to get to him.

Willie, of course, was still going strong at 35. You wonder if rumors about Albert's age weren't exaggerated.

Looks like Pujols is identifying breaking balls late and just taking them even when they are very hittable.  Seems very passive up there.  I never really watched him in STL.  I feel like one of those kids who saw Willie Mays on the Mets but never on the Giants.

One of the many serious boppers who are hitting below .200 after almost three weeks of the season. The question I'm wondering: were they also cold in spring training?

In Albert's case...

Spring training: .310/.338/.603 in 58 AB

Now: .177/.261/.355 in 62 AB

The combination of low K% (14) and terrible BABIP (.163) suggests a fair amount of bad luck.

The G/L/F (44/13/42) indicates he's not making solid contact.
