I’ve been watching a lot of good baseball lately.
This Fall Classic has been filled with some heroics and managed like a chess game. To me, this has been Happy Baseball for there are no blue or red pinstripes to be seen. Could it get any better? Well, maybe it can with the Metropolitans, but beggars can’t be choosers. I’ll take the Rangers and the Cards any day.
But there is one thing I’m hoping for, one thing I’m really counting on…..I hope that Albert Pujols is for real. I hope that it doesn’t come out that he was on the juice or hitting the HGH all this time. The other night, when he launched those three bombs, all I kept thinking was, here’s a guy that’s for real. Totally 100%. He might be the last legit slugger we ever see that actually looks like a slugger.
I tip my hat and pen to him, he is frightening at the plate in every sense of the word.
