Obviously, for some players, there is something about changing leagues in Major League Baseball. Amazingly, big bopper Albert Pujols has yet to hit a home run for the Anaheim Angels. This from a guy who has never hit fewer than 32 homers in his previous 11 MLB seasons. He has four (4) runs batted in. He's hitting .216. Not exactly what the Anaheim Angels expected when they signed him to a big-bucks free-agent contract of 10 years (silly signing, he'll be 42 in 10 years, as many pointed out upon his signing and so far such critics have been proved right; Pujols, great as he's been, is on the downslope of his career).
But ZERO home runs in 22 games as of this writing? Wow.
And a hopeful analysis.
We'll obviously see how it goes. It's early. Really early. But at the moment, the Angels are basement-dwellers in the American League West Division with a 7-15 won-lost record. His former team, the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, at 14-8, lead the National League Central by three games.
Right now, you'd have to say Albert misses the National League more than the Cardinals miss him.
