“You gotta get the tongue out! You know, that’s the secret. Then you start raking!” - Marco Scutaro, on imitating Albert Pujols

…oh my god?
Angels vs. Arizona Diamondbacks. June 15-17th, 2012.
I can haz group hug? :3
Is this for real?
My stomach just hit my knees. Albert. :/
I’m sorry, I keep seeing shit in my Angels tag that makes me want to punt puppies and I need to rant for a second.
Why do people keep assuming that anyone in the Angels organization expects Pujols to produce the same way in year 10 as in year 1? Seriously? Do you all think everyone related to the Angels is stupid? Arte isn’t this fucking moron like people keep trying to suggest. Neither is Dipoto, neither is Scioscia (usually).
The point is, you make the deal that’s going to get him here. If Pujols wants that much time/money, you give it to him. And, hopefully, he produces in a way you’d like for the first 4 or 5 years. Those last five years, you just kinda suck it up and let him be old and enjoy the fact that the first five were good.
I don’t expect him to be hitting 30 home runs a year when he’s 40. Hell, if he’s still hitting 30 home runs a year 4 years from now, I’ll consider the deal a win.
I’m not worried about the money. Pretty sure that $3 billion dollar TV contract the Angels are signing with Fox is gonna pay Pujols’ contract just fine.
What a nice man Albert Pujols is. He even arranged his home runs quite properly, without changing his facial expression or his swing mechanics.
It’s just a clean, three (three-run homer), two (two-run homer) one (solo shot). Three home runs. Neat and easy.
Old lady persona aside …
Do you fuckers now believe he’s the Robot Cyborg of the Christmas Past from the Christmas Future 25 years From Now? I mean … that’s factory efficient right there.
In fucking descending order! Like the motherfucker did it on purpose, which he probably did.
He just tied Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth’s record of 3 home runs in a World Series game.
Watch out, Mr. October.
