    Pujols shush-thing?

    I look forward to scouring the Cards fan sites tonight during the game to see what they're saying about BPhil's homerun antics. "Act like you've been there..." blah blah blah.

    In the meantime and on a related note, can someone who watched last night's game on TV help me understand what the Pujols shush/finger kiss thing was when he crossed home plate? He seemingly looked at the fans in the diamond seats and did it. Might be a weird sign of affection for his wife or family there or something? Or it might be... something else.

    I'm not a pot-stirrer by nature. So I tend to believe this just is something he does or something innocuous. But if not... well... let's just say Dave Duncan should be warming up his vocal cords in the late innings tonight.
    I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.

    The only thing that would have made Phillips' home run "trot" (lol) better would have been if he gave Pujols the finger as he rounded first.

    I'm sick of people saying he's so perfect. He stands there longer than anyone and shows up the opposing pitcher when he goes deep. Oh but he's "Sir Albert" so it'll just go ignored. His act is old and transparent IMO.

    Oh, and he sure does heal fast. Just sayin'.

    Funny how he magically returns from a month and a half injury in just 2 weeks.. ive said it once and ive said it before.. he is a user of performance enhansing drugs and he has the guru of ped's as a hitting coach. He is the face of the league and nothing and I mean nothing will happen to him because MLB doesn't want to loose anymore fanbase especially since NMB and NFL have taking hits with their lockouts.

    I was at the game, and the place sure did get quiet after that home run. Now I know why.

    I don't think it's anything so diabolical. It is very Tony though. Give just enough info to not lie, per se, but clearly hold back facts that paint the entire picture so that you alone can have the whole story. They did it with the rain in May and they did it with Pujols injury.

    I have to ask.... do PED's make bones heal faster? I honestly don't know, but I had never heard of it until you suggested it. I know it aids in the recovery of softer parts of our body, but Pujols broke a bone.

    But to be honest, I have zero problem with guys standing there watching their HR. If you don't want them to do it, don't serve it up. Simple as that IMO. Adults shouldn't be having their feelings hurt because someone wants to watch their HR.

    I don't either, but you and your teammates can't get pissy when another team does it. I think I remember Pujols saying something about Carlos Lee doing it as a Brewer, and we know about Garcia and Carpenter's antics.

    This post pretty much nails the Cardinals from top to bottom. They can not handle losing.

    I'd love nothing more than to have a Red pose like Pujols did on on both the homer, and the one Heisey brought back in.....against Carpenter tonight.

    HGH is said to promote bone regeneration. I will try to locate the link, but I read at one time that a study concluded it helped regeneration by as much as 20% of normal healing.

    It would make sense, as normal recurring HGH in the body helps with energy, bone healing, muscle formation, aids the organs, etc.

    I would love for a ball to be thrown and hit Pujols on the bum tonight. I don't see that happening, but it would be great.

    That does make some sense now that you said it. If you find the link I would love to read it. If not, it isn't a big deal.

    I believe the fact that he healed in amazing time is suspicious enough that the Commissioner should step in and investigate it. There is no rationale reason for it, nor is there any reason that his elbow, which was going to cause him to miss significant time due to surgery a few years ago, has magically healed.
