Let’s All Try to Pretend Albert Doesn’t Have 19 Homers
Albert smoked his 19th homer last night, setting a record by becoming the fastest player to reach 19 homers at this point in the season, which, let’s all keep in mind, is very early in the season. It’s hard not to think about the steroid-rumor-tinged home run records Pujols might be able to smash this year, and by smashing, restore our collective faith in the game. But I am trying my best not to think about it. Sure, I would love to see 80 homers out of the guy, but I don’t want him to have to carry that pressure for 4 and half months. Just as Albert makes it look easy, we should go easy on him and just enjoy this ride. That being said, I’d sure love to see him hit #20 today!
