I would like to dedicate this first post to the Texas Rangers, who will win their first World Series Championship in Game 6 tonight.
A thought, however, about Mr. Pujols. I think if I were pitching to him, I would close my eyes, spin around a few times on the mound, and wet my pants (all in an effort to distract him), and then with my eyes still closed, I would throw the ball as hard as I could and see if I could get him to swing at a pitch thrown into center field, the left field stands, etc.
It might work. When I did this in college I found that it cut down on the number of home runs allowed.
