Re: So...Pujols sure does suck right now
No way to prove anything, but I've always felt he was lying about his age. I don't think he was the product of anything more nefarious than that. He was simply doing what a lot ballplayers from the Dominican Republic have done for ages (heck, I lie about my age all the time).
It's catching up to him now. That's really the only logical explanation for his state of affairs. Can't say I really blame him, though.
