As the Principal noted in the 2014 baseball thread, Pujols hit home run number 500 tonight. I love bumping this thread up so we can look at what people said at the time he signed with the Angels.
As an aside, the Tigers loved big, fat Prince Fielder so much they traded him to Texas for Ian Kinsler.
I sort of assumed he'd underperform and be in a worse position in the city than he would have been had he signed a shorter contract in St. Louis. This milestone appears to have given him a bump, but I still reckon I'll be right (righter than Stingmark was, anyway) - and I'd rather have Matt Adams on 1B than Albert in 2014.
