Found December 14, 2011 on The Sports Bank:
The biggest story of this past sports weekend was the Milwaukee Brewers’ Ryan Braun testing positive for performance enhancing drugs.  The NL MVP vehemently denies he took the PEDs but he already seems convicted in the court of public opinion. Given what MLB was from 1994-2009 you can understand why new speculation about steroid use is at an all-time high. That said, users at the sports site conducted a poll results and the results follow. I made my commentary in parentheses. User Poll:  Which pro athlete will test positive for P.E.Ds next? (1)     Tiger Woods:  22% (I just don’t see it. Golf and steroids? You gotta be kidding me) (2)     Albert Pujols:  22% (This has to be the favorite, it’s reasonable to be skeptical of anyone in baseball, especially those with the biggest numbers) (3)     Sydney Crosby:  8% (How much does he have left now with the concussion issues? Will he be able to play much longer without serious long term consequences? This seems like ki...

Diedre Pujols Says St. Louis Fans Were "Deceived By The Numbers"

Albert Pujols has been a member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for a full five days now, but the fallout left behind because of his departure from the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis Cardinals organization continues.

Poor, poor Albert: La Russa says Pujols ‘in pain’ over decision

You probably don't have to go too far in St. Louis these days to find a person who believes that Albert Pujols' heart was two sizes too small when he signed his mega contract with the Los Angeles Angels. But to hear Tony La Russa tell it, the complete opposite might actually be true. In fact, if you listen to Pujols' old skipper, it sounds like the star is increasingly...

Reds have Gained by Doing Nothing

Scroll through the off-season transactions list on the MLB website and you won't likely find the Reds on there much, if at all. As a matter of fact, the team has been about as active lately as a box of lava rocks. But despite their unwillingness to pull the trigger on any sort of deal, they still continue to win without making a single move. How so you ask? Let me give you five...

Prince Fielder, 27, is entering his prime. He had the better 2011 regular season. Scott Boras can argue that Fielder will outperform Pujols over the next decade and is therefore entitled to a larger contract. Frankly...

Since failing to resign Albert Pujols to a long term contract extension, the St. Louis Cardinals have been quite active in filling key holes in the team's roster.  The Cardinals brought back shortstop Rafael Furcal and resigned Skip Schumaker, who is expected to fill more of a reserve role for the Cardinals in 2012. An interesting member of the leftover roster from last season...
