Above: the last time Albert Pujols made a speech in Washington, DC...it was at a Glenn Beck rally.
And after watching what Albert Pujols did on Saturday night (ignoring his no-show on Sunday and/or the rest of the 2011 playoffs), could you blame your fellow Nationals fans for joining the "Throw big bags of Ted Lerner's cash at Albert Pujols" camp? We're right there with you. Almost. So what if chances are slim and none?
This much we know: we'll go out on a limb and say that the Albert Pujols' press conference announcing his next contract will not be held at the Lincoln Memorial this winter; there's a chance Tony LaRussa will be in attendance, but Glenn Beck will not be there.
It probably won't be at Nationals Park, either...but one can always dream.
