Yup... it's real, Cardinal fans
He's an Angel.
Albert Pujols belongs to another team.
For some reason it just seems real when spring training starts, more so than any press conference.
It looks odd.
I remember when Pedro left the Red Sox for the Mets, I never quite accepted it until I saw him in Spring Training.
I can't imagine what a 15 year old Cardinal fan who probably has no memory of a St. Louis team WITHOUT Albert must be feeling.
Take the solace that I had when I saw Pedro wearing an odd uniform:
The last time he played for MY team, he was winning a World Championship. (Both in St. Louis!)
And three seasons later, a Pedro-less Red Sox team won ANOTHER title.
So yeah, it sucks. But it isn't the end.
I covered that in my video.
