Commissioner Bud Selig, visiting with reporters before the start
of Game 7 of the World Series, touched on several topics Friday,
not the least of which was Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols'
BEST OF MAXIM
It seems like MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is finally giving in, albeit slightly.
For years, the thought of instant replay in baseball remained just a thought, as Selig and his cronies stressed “human error” as part of the game.
Fair or Foul?
Umpires had been making good and bad calls since the game’s inception, so why did the current administration need to change anything?
This time, it really was Albert Pujols' final at-bat of the season, and perhaps as a Cardinal. The flashbulbs popped furiously in appreciation of the three-time NL MVP, who struck out in the seventh inning of Game 7. One last send-off. Now, it's time to start talking. After 11 seasons with the team that drafted him, Pujols is a free agent for the first time.
Bud Selig may not be so quick to give his college buddy a deal but the city of San Jose has no such problem.
San Jose is finally ready to sell about five acres of prime downtown real estate to the Oakland Athletics for what both the team and the city hope will eventually turn into a new baseball stadium.
The problem is, Major League Baseball is yet to rule on removing San Jose...
It’s been reported by multiple media outlets for weeks that the Marlins figure to play a role in the impending free agency of Albert Pujols. It is likely the Marlins do in fact check in Pujols and even present an offer but at the end of the day — the chances of the future Hall [...]
Albert Pujols tried to give away nothing during the celebration, tried to stay in the moment. But what a moment it was.
Last Saturday night, Albert Pujols treated us to an unparalleled display of power. His 5-for-6 performance, which included three home runs, six RBI, and 14 total bases, produced a RE24 of 5.808, the highest in World Series history.
To help pass the time until tomorrow night’s game, I thought that it would be interesting to examine the best Game Six offensive performances in World...
ST. LOUIS — Whether he's crushing three homers in a World Series game or deflecting questions about his impending free agency, Albert Pujols can seem downright robotic. His reputation as a destroyer of baseballs and bids for interesting quotes is well earned.
It was interesting, then, to see Pujols drop his usual persona around the ballpark to being one of the main mischief...
ST. LOUIS - Let's get this out of the way first: Bud Selig and Major League Baseball absolutely did the correct...
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig expects he will have to decide what compensation the Boston Red Sox should receive for allowing general manager Theo Epstein to leave and join the Chicago Cubs.
Braves general manager Frank Wren will not be grabbing the spotlight by pursuing Albert Pujols, Jose Reyes or any of this offseason's other high-profile free agents, but he is plenty motivated to improve upon a difficult ending to the 2011 season.
The Cardinals' Albert Pujols heads the list of baseball players on the market this off-season, with the Yankees' C. C. Sabathia and the Mets' Jose Reyes the other top names.
