Albert Pujols went 1-4 in his Dodgers debut and knocked in what would turn out to be the game-winning RBI with his 2-out RBI single to score Mookie Betts in the bottom of the second inning. We break down Pujols’ Dodgers debut and react to the three-time MVPs post-game press conference.
Plus, we discuss why exactly the Dodgers, who will pay him in the neighborhood of $430,000, the prorated amount of the current $570,500 league minimum, ultimately decided to sign one of the game’s all-time greatest players in the twilight of his career.
Next, Albert Pujols addressed the rumors that he wouldn’t accept a bench role with the Angels. We discuss what happened with Pujols and the Angels and why it will fuel him with the Dodgers.
In day one with the Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles, Pujols said all the right things and did what he was brought in to do. But on the Anaheim front, is there a little bit of revisionist history for the future Hall of Famer and what he said with the Angels?
Also, how do you think Albert looked in blue? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
