Pujols says he's 'hurting real bad'

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim slugger Albert Pujols is still dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and told reporters that it is "hurting real bad."

Albert Pujols Says His Foot Is ‘Hurting Real Bad’

  So there does appear to be a ***** in King Albert’s armor, afterall. Albert Pujols is nursing a nasty case of plantar fasciitis as his struggling Angels team tries to stay afloat in the early part of the season. Pujols revealed to Los Angeles Times reporter Bill Shaikin “I’m dying,” and then he added “I’m hurting real bad.” The 33-year-old first baseman is slated...

The resurgence of Jon Lester

Jon Lester has started this early 2013 season with three wins in four starts against no losses and currently sports a 1.73 ERA, an 0.885 WHIP and a 5.75 strikeout to walk ratio. He and Buchholz have provided the major push towards the Red Sox great start to the season. I wrote about what I have seen from Jon Lester so far this season in Big Leagues Magazine and the article appears...

Red Sox-Athletics Live: Jon Lester Can Keep Sterling Start Rolling Against Uneven A’s

8 a.m. ET: When a pitcher’s “worst start of the year” includes going five innings and giving up two earned runs while striking out seven, that’s a sign the pitcher is having a pretty good year. Such is the case for Jon Lester, who has not only bounced back from last season and reassumed the mantle of team ace but is also putting together one of his strongest stretches ever...

Mercyful Fate; Angels walk off on Tigers 4-3

In a game that looked like it was in the pooper early on the Angels managed to pull a hard, and I mean hard, fought victory. The Angels offense struggled through most of the game, failing to collect crucial hits in 7 of their 8 RISP opportunities. What really gets me excited is how the Angels battled against the such a heralded AL team, a team thought by many to play deep into the... Player of the Week: Mike Trout

With sluggers like Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton in the lineup, the biggest difference-maker for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim has been home-grown Mike Trout.

When Will Matt Kemp Go Deep?

Matt Kemp has had a tough time getting his bat going this season and it’s no surprise that he is attracting comparisons to Albert Pujols start last year. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 18 games (8-10) into 2013 and Kemp has yet to hit a single home run. Cause for concern? Well I decided to look back and compare Kemp’s start against what Pujols did for the first 18 games of 2012...
