You think he's on HGH since he recovered quickly? I just don't see that. Pujols probably isn't 100%, but he will play like he is. Pujols often plays with injuries that would bench most players. Just remember back to when he played LF, and had the problem with his arm and couldn't throw a baseball. He talked LaRussa into letting him play 1B so he wouldn't have to throw much. Then he had the problems with his foot that most players would not have played through. Before this injury, Pujols has never been on the DL. That isn't someone that is taking someone, that is a tough guy that wants toplay no mattter how bad he is hurting.
