Pujols blast more than egg on my face

What can I really say other than I’m happy to eat crow once again.  Albert Pujols put himself in an elite class tonight, becoming only the third player in the history of MLB, along with Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth, to hit 3 HR’s in one World Series game.

Many will say this was my worst nightmare, which couldn’t be further from the truth.  I want the Cardinals to win, and I wanted Albert Pujols to start playing like a player that wants to be the highest paid player in the game.  I took some nasty shots at Albert, and I’m happy to eat crow for all of them.  I’ll have more on game 3 tomorrow and lump it in with game 4 thoughts before the game, but for now all I can say is three cheers for “The Machine”.  Pujols first home run of the game was the biggest of his career, stopping the Rangers who continued to make it look like they were never going to stop coming back.  They did after Albert sent the biggest HR of his career 423 feet to left field.
