Albert Pujols > Gil Meche


Did Albert Pujols make like Babe Ruth an call his home run shot?

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the slugging first baseman of the St. Louis Cardinals did just that, predicting his grand slam homer.

After opening the third inning with a fly out, Pujols returned to the Cardinals clubhouse to review video. There he predicted to assistant hitting coach Mike Aldrete that his next at-bat would ricochet off the yet-to-open Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame behind the visitors bullpen in left field. “He didn’t say he might hit the Hall of Fame. He said he would hit the Hall of Fame,” Aldrete recalled.

Pujols returned in the fourth inning against Royals starting pitcher Gil Meche with the bases loaded and one out in a 4-4 game. Pujols and Meche reached a full count. By then Meche had shown Pujols every pitch in his repertoire except a change-up. When Meche finally threw the pitch, Pujols swatted it some 423 feet off a Hall of Fame window, according to the Post-Dispatch.

If this wasn’t Albert Pujols, I would say FSN.

But it is.

So I believe it 200%

I’m terrified for the Mets for the next three games.

For Sure Call Your Grand Slam
