    I'm rooting for Albert Pujols!

    Pujols has put up the best April ever in the history of Major League Baseball, and he's doing it cleanly (I believe this, and I've seen nor heard anything that would contradict it).

    In 1998, at the end of April, McGwire had 11 homeruns.

    In 2001, Barry Bonds had 11 homeruns at the end of April.

    I know it is early, but with 14 homeruns, Pujols is on a record breaking pace, and I'd love to see him do it, if for no other reason than to clear my memory of steroid induced records.

    I know that he plays on a division rival, and I hope he hits 74 homeruns or more in many a losing game But I really, really want to see him take this record.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    He plays for "them" so obviously no.

    I rooted for Mark McGwire back in '98. I didn't care that he played for the Cardinals, I love baseball, and I thought the homerun chase was great. I'll tell you a little secret, I actually own a McGwire Cardinals' jersey. Not that I wear it, especially not now.

    I can't think of anything that would be better for the sport in 2006, short of the Reds winning it all, than to see Barry Bonds' 73 homerun season become irrelevant.

    At least I know that MattyMo will agree with me.

    In '98, the Reds were never in the race and the Cards weren't either. This year is different. I'll root for him to forget how great he is and come back down to earth.

    The thought of rooting for Albert Pujols has about the same piquancy as the idea of my cat performing a strip tease.

    Perhaps if he weren't developing a Sosa-like self-appreciation after each home run I'd be more sympathetic.

    Not if, say, he goes 9 for 9 tomorrow with 9 homeruns, that's just one game. :

    I like Barry, even with steriods, better than any Cards player past,present or future. That kinda sums it up.
