      I got it right -

      It's Mr. Cinco

      Albert Pujols

      It was actually Sir Albert who inspired this entire project -- when a scout who had been following the Cardinals observed one day: "It's beyond me why anybody ever pitches to that first baseman."

      Pujols has finished in the top four in the NL in intentional walks three years in a row. But this year, as the offensive cast around him thins, he's tied for the league lead with Ryan Howard -- and is on a 46-intentional-walk pace.

      Just to put that in perspective, if he does get to 46, he'd be only the third player in history to get that many free journeys to first (joining only Bonds and Willie McCovey).

              Might want to ask Francona...apparently, if you don't walk him, he might hit a SINGLE.

                    I think we should just defer to the Brewers manager who walked Albert with the bases loaded and came out of it with a win.

                    C - sucker.

                      If you are talking scared of HRs only sure he doesn't belong there, if you are talking about a guy to just hit, he does belong there.
                      Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.

                        I don't see why Pujols is feared.

                        You walk him.

                        Next batter makes an out.

                        No problem.

                            I am afraid when Aaron Miles is batting.

                            We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

                              A guy on first shouldn't scare a manager. So a guy's on first, no biggie. You should be afraid of the guy who can change the score with any swing at any point in the game.
