    The Greatest Athletes to Wear Each Number: No. 99 to No. 00

    You know a superstar athlete has become a legend when his name has become synonymous with his jersey number, and there’s a banner with that number on it hanging in the rafters of every stadium of every team he ever played for. Ninety-nine? That’s Gretzky. Ten? Pele, of course. Forty-two? Jackie Robinson. Twenty-three? Jordan. Duh. […]

    9 Sports Stars Who Came Out Of Nowhere

    Pro sports teams are always on the hunt for “the next big thing,” the guy who might put a team on his back and carry them to multiple championships. That’s why we make such a big deal about scouting and prospects and draft lotteries and draft picks. But of course, things don’t always go as […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/1/11 — Albert Pujols

    When the Cards entered their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, it appeared as though the Brewers had the NL Central locked up.  That no longer appears to be the case, thanks to a sweep by the Cards. On Tuesday it was pitcher Jake Westbrook providing the unexpected run support with a go-ahead […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    With the official “best player in baseball” set to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season, people started to worry when Albert Pujols got off to an excruciatingly slow start back in April and May. More recently, however, the Cardinals first baseman has started to look more like himself. Last night […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/29/10 — Albert Pujols

    Albert Pujols is one of the best players in the league and some would say one of the best players of all-time.  It would be a tough thing to argue against, as Pujols has consistently hit his way to the top of the leaderboards and kept his team competitive even when all has seemed lost. […]

    Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    The list of jerks throughout pro sports is a lengthy one, and too often we read about them instead of the good guys in sports.

    When it comes to hitting home runs, Albert Pujols has somewhat struggled thus far this season, at least by his standards.  Coming into yesterday afternoon’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals first baseman had only managed to hit nine out of the park through the first two months, but a big game against the Chicago Cubs […]

    Picture Of The Day: Albert POO-holes

    That’s how you say his name, folks. POO-holes. Make fun of a guy that is the best player in all of baseball and whacked two homers in his first game of the season? Sure, why not? It’s funny because it’s pronounced POO-holes. He’s an 8-time all-star and three-time MVP? Awesome. You know how to say […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/5/10 – Albert Pujols

    It didn’t take Albert Pujols long to pick up where he left off last season.  In fact, it was only his second swing of the season yesterday when he launched his first home run into deep left center field.  Last year’s NL MVP got off to a great start in his first at-bat, but he […]
