    Possibly: Pujols Back Friday

    From Rotoworld.com:

    Albert Pujols (oblique) took batting practice, fielded grounders and ran hard in the outfield Tuesday.

    It's possible that Pujols will be activated for Friday's game against the Tigers. "He's stepping up the program. Everything so far, he's feeling good," manager Tony La Russa said. "He'll keep stepping it up until he's game-ready. But there is a conditioning factor now, too. It's not just getting his legs in shape and his arm in shape, there is a lot to get ready."

    Got to hope the Reds can turn things around...

    ESPN is running a ticker at the bottom of the screen that LaRussa is thinking of activating him Monday.

    And now it looks like Edmonds might be down with a concussion.

    Albert HGH Pujols is back in the lineup tonight.

    That stuff works really well.

    If I were the Cards I wouldn't rush him back this quick. Give him another couple of weeks - maybe till the All Star Break - and make sure he is 100%. It's not like anyone is breathing down their necks.

    Shouldn't this throw up some red flags that he is back in the lineup this fast after his injury?
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    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.

    the reason a lot of people think he is on HGH is because of his trainer. You can't deny that is kinda fishy.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
