I will openly admit that Albert Pujols deserved this spot. So I’ll give him a little love right here: 3 yak yaks in one game in the World Series is amazing. Albert, I know you did steroids, but you are the best hitter of my generation. Done.
For those of you who drafted Arian Foster and had to put up with his hamstring, you were rewarded handsomely this weekend. I think it’s safe to say Foster is back, and he’s going to be paying your bills for the rest of the season.

Read it and weep…. 115 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. 119 receiving yards and another touchdown. That brings his fantasy point total to a whopping 43ish points depending on your format. It also puts him in some rare company. The take home message from this article is that the World Series this season is being owned by Fantasy Football. Lastly, I just need to say it… Dude you’re the face o...

With Albert Pujols on an absolute tear, how much should the Rangers intentionally walk him? Cliff Corcoran explores this issue as he breaks down tonight's critical Game 4 in Arlington.
Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals followed up their greatest World Series performance with one of their meekest.
I am no fan of the intentional walk. Not only is it usually poor strategy (there are very few situations when it is even a good play to give Albert Pujols a free pass), but I also tend to agree with those who think that the intentional walk is contrary to the “spirit of the game.” There are some interesting suggestions out there on how it might be “banned” — for example...
Albert Pujols' pending free-agency isn't the only franchise-changing negotiation awaiting the St. Louis Cardinals once the World Series concludes.

I wrote an article earlier (http://maxfrankel.com/?p=1547) this year that basically praised Mr. Pujols (I think its a shame to call him anything else when you see what he can do to a baseball) forputting the pressure behind him, overcoming mere forearm breaks and...
