07:19 AM ET 07.29 | While his average has hovered around .250 much of the season, Albert Pujols had been particularly productive this past week -- which may be his last for a while. [Pujols] has been told he is likely to miss the remainder of the season because of a painful condition in his left foot, according to sources. The news comes as a potentially devastating development for the underachieving Los Angeles Angels. Pujols is on the disabled list because of a partially torn ligament in the foot, which might ultimately relieve the discomfort of the chronic condition -- plantar fasciitis -- but would require as much as two months recovery time, some of that in a walking boot. In the unlikely event surgery is required, recovery time is about six months.

The laughs don't get any harder for Texas and St Louis by passing on their dead beats. The Angels are looking extremely foolish right now. They deserve it

Do you think now that Deidre Pujols might owe an apology to the Cardinal management and fans for bad mouthing them for not signing the franchise away to her boy Albert ?

Angels are going to be hurting for a long time because of two humongous long term contracts.

Hopefully it finally changes the game as far as long-term, ridiculous contracts are concerned. Youda thunk the A-Rod deal would have served as a stern warning.

I doubt it. There's always some team willing to get stupid and that's all it takes to perpetuate these signings.

Next up for a long-term, ridiculous contract? Robbie Cano, dontcha know.

And then there's Big Papi, a player who has always juiced and goes postal.

Well, at least Anaheim didn't back load Pujols' contract.
