That's a URL to an article that I recently read that left me beaming from ear to ear.

As a Cardinal fan, I think we sometimes take it for granted that Pujols is going to be batting third and playing first every single night. I know that with his contract coming up, we've all begun to realize just how scary it would be without our beloved Albert.

But when I read something like this, it really causes me to take a step back and think...

"This guy might be the greatest baseball player to ever play the game...EVER"

Forget Babe Ruth. Forget Ted Williams. Mickey Mantle. Stan Musial...

50 years from now, I'm going to be telling my grandkids that I got to see Albert Pujols rookie year. I got to watch him play...in person.

Hell, it almost makes me wanna go out right now and have a kid just so he gets a chance to witness this! (Don't tell the girlfriend I said that!)
