07:13 AM ET 08.14 | At this point, the question becomes: Will former Cardinals star Albert Pujols follow through? Jack Clark has retained prominent St. Louis attorney Chet Pleban as legal counsel in the wake of [Pujols']threat to take legal action against him over his recent on-air accusatory comments, and vows to have an aggressive defense if a suit is filed. Clark, also a former Cardinals slugger, said at least twice this month on WGNU (920 AM) that Pujols' one-time trainer told him in 2000 that Pujols used steroids. ... [Clark released a statement through Pleban:] "I stand by my previous remarks regarding Pujols and will rigorously defend any lawsuit that he chooses to file. Litigation is an intense fact-finding process and I welcome the opportunity for a jury of 12 unbiased people to judge the credibility of my comments."

The more Pujols squirms, the more people are aware of his PED use. Let it go Angry Albert

Somehow "credibility" and "Jack Clark" don't belong in the same sentence, unless of course he's talking about someone ELSE'S credibility

Pujols is a fool if he goes down this road.

Yeah, he's been a huge disappointment in his post playing career. I have some good memories of his short time as a Cardinal player, but he is just a whiny publicity seeker now.

Indeed. It's a no win for him. The last thing he wants is to give someone a legitimate reason to start digging around.

None of these guys ever own up.

I am a fan of AP. So to me - if he is clean - he will not mind someone digging around. I think Jack at this point (and it's just an opinion) - is counting on AP backing down - hoping there is a skeleton in the closet. But if there is not. AP should continue.

Hey Albert! Two words for you....ROGER CLEMENS.

Pujols is on so many pain killers and inflammatory meds that it is not a good time to be thinking out loud right now....
