Well Albert Pujols shut ME up!
What can I say?
If you thought Albert post Game 2 acting bush league, then he showed today that he belongs in a HIGHER league.
Seriously... I am totally speechless on his performance.
He basically said "You want a comment from my previous game? How about THIS as a comment?"
5 for 6?
Putting his name along side Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson with single game World Series dominance?
Doing this on the biggest stage may have put a year or two on his contract too.
Folks, I wasn't crazy about his style after Game 2.
But holy CRAP did he deliver substance.
Lest we forget, the Rangers scored 7 runs and Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse only retired 9 batters... and it was a Cardinals blow out.
I think Cardinal fans would take that rather than a quote.
That WAS his quote.
Save for that extra inning meltdown by the Cardinals, we'd be looking at a St. Louis sweep tomorrow.
And yeah, Allen Craig was terrific the first three games... but after tonight, if the Cardinals win is there ANY doubt who the MVP should be?
I for one was hoping Albert would avoid the press tonight too... just to let his bat do the talking.
It was loud and clear tonight.
And all I could do is shut up!
