Found May 14, 2012 on Cardinals Diaspora:
Well that was a pisser of a series... It’s too early for HMW’s ‘Cardinals Crapmas’, but I think we have an early contender for one of the 12 days. Why are they selling these in May? What audience are they trying to appeal to? So many questions about this outfit… Tyler Greene, we said it before and we’ll say it again: It’s time to move on. His 0-9 over the weekend dropped his batting average into Albert Pujols territory and that’s just not going to cut it on this team… Anyone else stumble upon the EPL game between Manchester City and QPR? If you didn’t, you missed one the best sports endings in the history of soccer. Check it out: LINK HERE… I think I’d be much more disgusted by the mom breastfeeding her kid at 3 years old if she wasn’t good looking. I don’t know what that means exactly, but the moment I start to get outraged I remember I don’t know when the right age to stop breastfeeding is and that this particular mom whipping out a breast in public isn’t a bad thing for

Struggling Greene enjoys "great day"

ST. LOUIS There haven't been too many days like this for Tyler Greene. Only two all season, in fact. Stuck in a prolonged slump that has caused some restless fans in Cardinal Nation to wonder whether or not he would ever show his potential in St. Louis, Greene quieted the masses. At least for a day. Greene went 3-for-3 with a single, double, triple, walk and scored a run to...

Scioscia is going to ride it out with Pujols

The Angels have tried very little to shake first baseman Albert Pujols out of his season-long slump, choosing instead to largely sit back in hope -- and amazement -- that he will somehow figure things out and return to the level of production he had for 11 seasons with the Cardinals. Manager Mike Scioscia did give Pujols a "mental day off" during the Angels' last...

White Sox-Angels Preview

With one of his best showings at the plate this season, Albert Pujols took another step toward ending his early season struggles. The high-priced first baseman, though, will have to continue that work and try to rediscover his power with a new hitting coach when the Los Angeles Angels begin a two-game set against the visiting Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. Pujols is 8 for...

Angels fire hitting coach Mickey Hatcher

The Los Angeles Angels fired hitting coach Mickey Hatcher on Tuesday after Albert Pujols and many of his teammates got off to dismal offensive start this season. Hatcher's dismissal was announced about 90 minutes after the Angels had 12 hits in a 4-0 victory over Oakland. A day earlier, Los Angeles lost 5-0 to the Athletics - its major league-worst eighth shutout loss already...

Angels Shake Things Up…A Bit.

Was Mickey Hatcher encouraging Albert Pujols to spend 2012 doing the best Wilson Valdez impression he could? The Angels fired their long-standing hitting coach last night in an attempt to revive an offense that is on pace to set a record for futility in at least one category. It’s an understandable move in some ways; it won’t hurt to change things up even if Hatcher can hardly...

Santana, Pujols help Angels rebound past A's

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Ervin Santana struck out nine during 7 2-3 innings of four-hit ball, Albert Pujols drove in two runs with infield singles, and the Los Angeles Angels rebounded from yet another shutout loss with a 4-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night. Mike Trout went 3 for 4 with a homer and three runs scored for the Angels, who finally produced enough...

Preseason concerns about St. Louis Cardinals offense prove to be unfounded

Heading into the 2012 season, the St. Louis Cardinals had lost the best hitter in the game during the past decade. Albert Pujols left the comforts of St. Louis to chase big money, and many thought the Cardinals’ offensive production would leave with him. Instead, the opposite has been true. Going into play Saturday, the Cardinals were leading the National League in hits, homeruns...

Angels 4, Athletics 0

Angels shaky, but they're not shaking

Perhaps you heard: El Hombre is El Stinko. A month and a half into his first year playing for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Albert Pujols might as well be Mario Mendoza. The 240 million man has so far hit only one home run as he nears 150 at-bats. He's batting below .200 and slugging below .300. Among the not-so-illustrious names with better 2012 power numbers than Pujols...

American League Quarter Pole Awards

The American League has had some crazy things happen this season. The struggles of Albert Pujols, the Angels, and Red Sox might be the biggest stories overall, but some very interesting and positive stories accompany that.
