Pujols to miss at least three weeks

 

CINCINNATI -- The Cardinals will be without Albert Pujols for at last three weeks, and perhaps more.

The first baseman was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a strained left calf. Pujols originally sustained the injury on June 3 in Washington, but aggravated it Tuesday night breaking from the batter's box on a grounder.

 

As expected, Chris Duncan was called up from Triple-A Memphis and will start in Pujols' place at first base. Duncan will bat sixth, while Ryan Ludwick will take Pujols' spot at third in the order.

Not a good week for managers.

 

"After being swept in Milwaukee by the Brewers and losing five straight game, the Toronto Blue Jays have fired manager John Gibbons, coaches Marty Pevey, Ernie Whitt and Gary Denbo.

 

Cito Gaston has returned as the manager for the remainder of the season. Nick Leyva will coach at third base and Gene Tenace returns as the hitting coach - both coaches from the Blue Jays 1992 and 1993 World Series title era. Roving hitting instructor Dwayne Murphy will take over as the first base coach."

Not really a fan of inter-league play, I must admit the weekend series in Chicago has been exciting, but it seems to be the exception and not the rule....

Yes. They're winning because they have an awesome team. Plain, and simple. Theys eemed to have no problem winning with him when they tied for 1st over, almost amde thre world series, and outside of a horrible September last seaosn ahd a pretty good season.

 

They were eventually going to turn it around, anyways. *shrug*

 

It's what happens when you have guys like Reyes, Wright, and Beltran. (Reyes and Beltran who should be the ASG, btw).

Do you really care who is in the Allstar game? Or who wins it"

 

Personally I think they should get rid of Allstar games, pro bowls.....I used to like them when I was 10 but now :shrugz:

I do, as much as I care about anything. The best players should eb there. And, Beltranm and Reyes ar eamonsgt the best at their position. they belong there.

 

P.S. ON a negative Mets thing, the next time I read/hear someone claiming how great at defense Wright is; I'm gonna to imagine punching them a billion times 'cause he sucks in the field. Period. He makes one great play and now people think he's god's gift to fielding at 3rd base. L0L Pathetic.

Don't have a problem with the fan vote. Now, some of the selections by the players/coaches is what has me scratching my head...

Replace "Wright" with "Jeter" and "3rd base" with "shortstop" then I would agree.

Been watching the All star game, the only way to stomach meaningless baseball games is with massive amounts of beer.

Did my best to avoid the allstar game last night, but what do you know, got home and it's a tie game in extra inning's. So I watched it, I was hoping for a tie that would have been funny. Why don't they just give home field advantage to the team with the best record?
