08:51 AM ET 08.10 | Albert Pujols angrily denied Jack Clark's accusation that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his early days with the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Angels slugger said Friday night that he will take legal action against Clark and the radio station the former major leaguer works for. "It is irresponsible and reckless for Jack Clark to have falsely accused me of using PEDs," Pujols, who is on the disabled list and did not travel with the Angels to Cleveland, said in a statement. "My faith in Jesus Christ and my respect for this game are too important to me. I would never be able to look my wife or kids in the eye if I had done what this man is accusing me of. "I know people are tired of athletes saying they are innocent, asking for the public to believe in them, only to have their sins exposed later down the road. But I am not one of those athletes, and I will not stand to have my name and my family's name dragged through the mud. "I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU (920 AM). I am going to send a message that you cannot act in a reckless manner, like they have, and get away with it."

I don't think Clark or the station have enough money to make it worth your while. He's been fired over it; let it go.

Clark is all mouth and he misses his name in the paper. So had to do something to be notice again.

It Looks Like You Need PEDs, Bro.

Wonder if Al would have sued Clark if Clark had said Al is lying about his age?

Even if Clark was right. Makes no difference. He simply can't prove any of it

Agreed....

This kind of stuff, law suits, drag out. If I own the Angels I tell him to sit down and let it go, I am paying the guy too much money for distractions.
