Yeah I did.... not happy with that performance! Plus him not signing before the season started has made alot of people uneasy about this year. If we have a bad year, he may leave, if we have a good year his value will go up. So it's up in the air. For those of you who don't know it, Albert Pujols is a devote Christian. Very strong in his faith and he and his wife and children are all great people. I'm just hoping the whole money issue doesn't make his mind up fully. Obviously the Cards can't offer him what the yanks and sox and dodgers can (among others) but we offer him what many baseball announcers and fans say is the best fans in the country. I mean it... I watch other games all the time and when a player doesn't perform well the crowd will boo them (especially the yanks and sox) but not the Cards. We have more respect for our players and show it to them by backing them up... now I'm not saying we're the only organization that does this... but one of the best.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
