Sad but true: outside of Coker, Dulaney, and myself no one gives a shit about baseball at Weekly World Headquarters because we're a bunch of commies who think sports is the opiate of the American masses.

So what's this we hear about some Mexican named Pujols causing a big fuss about joining your Anaheim Angels of Anaheim? That has the Orange County Register treating his arrival with 24-hour news coverage as if he's the Second Coming of Reagan?

When I told the Weekling that we should send a photographer for a slideshow, one actually asked when "Starting Day" was--HILARIOUS!

Anyhoo,the pride of the Dominican Republic and clean-living athletes--Tebow before Tebow--Albert Pujols had a great spring training in Arizona, not only NOT getting arrested by Arpayaso's goons but batting .383 and launching more than a few bombs to strike fear into the American League. Barring any Mo Vaughn-esque catastrophes, Pujols should bring out the best in the vets (Torii Hunter), the established homegrown cats (Weaver, Kendrick), and the rooks like Trumbo and that other guy from OC who's name I can't remember...CJ Wilson? Make sure to tip your scalper extra tonight when you desperately try to get in at 7 p.m.--see you there!

I'm surprised gus took his eyes off of Alberts crotch long enough to evaluate his play.

...almost forgot, AC Green set the standard for clean living for an athlete in this region, I do not remember him genuflecting though

Give credit where credit is due, Orel Hershiser tebowed when Albert was 8 years old and Tebow was 1 year old.

He's Catalan, just like Blessed Father Serra and the Portola fellow that founded this state.

Seriously though, who can sit through the 2.5-3 hours of boredom that is baseball?

Apparently Dulany doesn't care about baseball either since he's a Doyer fan...

I will admit that baseball in So-cal is always more exciting when both teams are playing well... But I say that purely because of the buzz and energy it generates otherwise when it comes to the inferior NL I prefer the Gigantes! Then the Padres and those kick ass camo uni's they wear!
