The St. Louis Cardinals picked a bad time to lose 99% of their lineup. They are currently tied for first place in the NL Central with the Milwaukee Brewers and have now lost one of the best hitters in baseball.
That’s right, Albert Pujols is going bye-bye with a fractured forearm. The team is saying that he’ll miss the next 4-6 weeks, but we know how the Cardinals get down, don’t we? They tend to be a little rosy when it comes to injuries, so it’s possible that he can be out even longer.
Pujols collided with a runner at first on Sunday and had to leave the game. We’re sure that Cardinals fans are thrilled.
Lance Berkman, who has been pretty damn good so far this year, will probably take over at first base, with John Jay then taking his place in the outfield.
