Video: Albert Pujols Throws His Glove at Fellow Angel Erick Aybar

| by Alex Groberman

In theory, the Angels beating the Twins 6-2 on Wednesday night should have been reason enough for everyone to go home happy. Even the completely awful Albert Pujols didn’t suck in the effort – ultimately going 2-for-5 with two RBIs. Unfortunately, the Angels (who are 14-18 now) couldn’t even get the postgame celebration right. During the customary high-five, handshake thing that these guys do tend to do, Pujols and Erick Aybar had something of a tiff.

For whatever reason, rather than slapping Pujols’ hand, Aybar opted to tap him on the elbow. Pujols didn’t respond kindly to that, and threw his glove in a fit of rage (alright not rage, but definitely annoyance):

Some are saying that Pujols reacted like he did because Aybar tapped him on the elbow that he had work done on a few years back. Could be. Either way, nothing epitomizes the sort of year that the Angels have had thus far as well as that amazingly stupid exchange does.
