Albert Pujols is hitless (in large part due to the mastery of China-manian Bruce Chen) as an Angel and the St. Louis Cardinals are undefeated without their former MVP slugger. 

This is the worst possible start to the season for those that are envious of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball franchise (see Cub fans), and the best possible outcome for goober* Cardinal enthusiast that thought "them, there Cardinals don't need that selfish, overpaid, greedy,  past his prime Pujols."

It will get better for Pujols.  The China-manian** pitching phenom Bruce Chen will continue to amaze, the Cardinals will eventually lose a game, and the Cubs will continue to be the only team or individual referred to as a disaster.

Now, that's a winner.

Until Next Time,
