After missing nearly 3 weeks, Albert Pujols homered in his second game back, hitting number 26 on the year... ah, if not for a strained oblique muscle, what could have been? Pujols could still easily get to 60, but 70+ seems out of reach even for him.
The Rangers are a 1/2 game behind the A's in the West after beating the Rockies 8-6 at Coors Field last night thanks to back to back jacks by Teixeira and Blalock in the top of the 7th.
The amazing Mets have a commanding 11 game lead in the NL East and the second best record in the majors behind the Detroit Tigers... hard to believe, I know, but the Tigers are best team in baseball right now. Wouldn't it be nice to have this guy in the Rangers rotation right now?
