Found July 28, 2013 on The Outside Corner:
Angels first baseman may not play again this year after he was placed on the disabled list on Sunday with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. Pujols has been dealing with the injury for awhile, but aggravated it while running to first base on Friday against the A's. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that Pujols would be out for "a significant amount of time". Cole Kalhoun was called up from AAA Salt Lake to replace Pujols on the Angels' roster. Pujols' second year in Anaheim was going much worse than this first. The 33-year old was hitting .258/.330/.437 in 99 games with 17 homers. Him and Josh Hamilton haven't been the one-two punch in the middle of the Angels lineup like they imagined this year, as Hamilton has struggled even more than Pujols in his first season with his new club. Hamilton is hitting .221/.275/.409 this year with 15 homers. The Angels are in an ugly position with Pujols going forth, because his ten year contract wa...

Reason #7,432 Why You Don't Sign 10-Year Contracts

Done Albert Pujols, in year two (!) of a deal that will make past Los Angeles Angels Of Outer Rancho Cucomonga death deals look like nothing, DL'd for the year. His OPS was all of 767, so it's not like this is going to be a bitter loss for the Angeles to take... but dear heaven, do the Angels need for an NBA/NHL style amnesty experience to kick in right about now.Oh, and...

Now It's Getting Sad

It came.  A single link late Saturday night, with no comment. Right there in the e-mail box from Mountain Fresh (LINK HERE). He didn't have to say anything and I didn't have to respond. It was sad.

Good Luck Rebuilding

By Jason Sinner, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  I keep seeing tons of internet chatter from Angels fans about selling off the teams spare parts to make them better......eventually. Yet a bad loss tonight and many are still pissed even with little doubt about the outcome of this season.  On top of that, we traded a 38yo middle relief lefty specialist about to become a FA...
