pujols fan club

• Albert Pujols hit his 22nd homerun today... this starts my official count down, just 52 more until someone legitimate holds the season HR record. Pujols also leads the majors with 53 RBI, oh and he's hitting .317 as well.

• The Mets took 2 of 3 from the Yankees over the weekend. Only a bullpen collapse in the second game kept them from a sweep. Coincidentally it also cost Pedro a win in a game that he pitched 7 scoreless innings.

• Somehow the Rangers have managed to stay tied for the lead in the AL West even after losing 6 of their last 10 games… that tells you all you need to know about the West.

• How are the Detroit Tigers the best team in MLB? It’s called pitching and timely hitting; two things the Rangers have never been able to master. Wouldn’t it be nice to still have this guy in the Rangers rotation? He's tied for the major league lead for wins.

• Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro emerged from over six hours of surgery and was able to stand on Sunday, a day after the colt broke his right rear leg in three places at the Preakness. Read more about his amazing surgery here. In a sport that really could have used some positive media attention like a potential Triple Crown winner, read here about a possible way to make the sport safer for the horse.
