    Pujols possibly implicated in steroid scandal

    If this is true, I will be so, so sad. Obviously an unsubstantiated rumor at this point, but some names were drawn from the Jason Grimsley report, and one of them was Chris Mihlfeld, Pujols's personal trainer since before he was even drafted.

    Yes, you should get all your sports information from deadspin.com like me.

    edit: I meant to put this in Reds Live. Could somebody please move it?

    Idle speculation. I knew as soon as the Grimsley story hit, Pujols would be thrown out there. I don't buy it.

    It probably deserves it's own discussion, I suppose, but as names leak out, there are going to be plenty of seperate discussions.

    Technically, not Pujols' name in the Grimsley affidavit, but supposedly that of his trainer. Of couse, given the Bonds/trainer link, people will make their own conclusions again...

    Man, requests to move this thread, then delete it. Somebody is being bossy today. :

    I think the topic can handle it's own discussion, otherwise it might get lost in the other Grimsley stuff.

    Re: Pujols possibly implicated in steroid scandal

    It wouldn't surprise me at all. I've always thought Pujols did one of two things: some type of steroid or lied about his age. The reason being because I have never, ever seen a 21-year old with such a physcially mature body as Pujols. Look at Dunn and Kearns when they first came up - they were skinnier, but naturally their body filled out. I just don't see that in Pujols. He has the same body as he did when he came in the league.

    I hope they bust Albert. I never have liked the guy.

    Tomorrow I'll start a new one and ask you to merge them.

    Re: Pujols possibly implicated in steroid scandal

    From the discussion underway at sportsfrog's board, one of the people there googled Mihlfeld's name (Pujols trainer/friend) and found a blog entry from Mihlfeld's sister describing just how close her brother and Pujols are...she called them "soul brothers"...

    I did some specualing when Pujols went on the DL that it was a covert MLB discipline operation. Whatever that means.

    Cardinals have a long history of steriods abuse. And Tony Larussa also has managed a lot of players who have dabbled in same.

    I thought it was funny a few weeks back when Pujols defended Bonds and said he did nothing wrong. Now maybe Barry can defend Albert?

    I don't know about that, but I started speculating when Albert came out and said that he was twice cut by major league teams at a tryout in the Dominican Republic. He also admitted that he was a chubby kid at the time, now look at him. Nothing but rock solid muscle. Either this guy is a young Arnold Schwarzenegger or he did the Bonds "workout" treatment.

    This as ginned up on an internet search on Mihlfeld's name as done by one of the posters at sportsfrog:

    We wanted to personally invite you to the grand opening of Millhouse AEP and baseball for Dec 30th 05 At 5 to 7 pm. Albert Pujols will be signing free autograph for those who sign up for any type of instruction. I will attach a flyer and general information about our background and location please take the time to read and let us know if you can attend. We also have more important dates to announce Mike Sweeney from the K.C. Royals will be there on Jan 14th 06 to do a camp with Chris Mihlfeld. Also Albert Pujols will be back in early Feb for a hitting clinic, and Jason Grimsley will be there at the end of January for pitching clinics. We will keep you informed on upcoming events. Thanks again for your time and please pass this along to anyone who might be interested.

    LeBron James takes the cake for the most physically developed human being for their age ever. Pujols is a solid 2nd though.

    I don't think that Pujols did roids or hgh but at the same time I wouldnt be shocked if it turned out he did. I would love to see Grande have to try to defend "Sir" Albert.
