Re: MLB: FUCK A'S
Pujols is definitely the more reliable hitter, but the length of that contract is horrifying. More so for a team in the Angels that already have a "natural DH" in Trumbo. Making Pujols into the nearly-everyday DH is the obvious long-term solution even if his value is obviously monstrously diluted from that move (hell, they've already almost gone there this season), but if I were an Angels fan I'd be fearful every time a ball was hit in the vicinity of Trumbo. Although it looks like he's a better defender so far this season than he's been in the past (may very well just be small sample size wonkiness, though).
