If Pujol's back up a AAA who hit's .234 with 12 homers, it might inflate his WAR a bit.
    That is not how WAR works at all.

    If Pujols was using, it's pretty crazy the amount of consistency he had, the plate discipline he had at a very young age, and the rate in which he improved at literally everything.

    He is one of the most difficult guys to say he used. Because his career has basically no spikes, no outliers, and he consistently would had to have gotten away with something that didn't affect his performance in times when he couldn't use.

    The only times his production has dropped at all in his career is based on one single thing. His patience at the plate.

    No to mention, the fact the guy has great power with a low K rate. That's extremely odd and rare.


    I would be as surprised to find out Pujols used PED's as I would if I heard the same of Griffey. Neither fit the criteria very well.

    Considering he went to American high school and college and isn't from a country that we have had age issues. I think this is very unlikely as well.

    That's not to say that I don't think there's a chance he used PED's. But come on now.
    So you were trolling? Good to know

    But the first post was a joke, because I think this thread is absurd. He is still great.
    Do you think there's a chance he used PEDS or do you actually believe he did?

    Or are you trolling like Sexicano and Jeffy pointed out?

    I'll stick with the trolling..

    Pujols is older, and has played with a lot of injuries throughout his career. That can take a cumulative effect and slow you down a lot. I think his plate discipline has worn down a bit, he went from being very patient to being somewhat impatient. I expect him to still have good numbers for 5 more years.

    I don't think he juiced. I would be surprised to learn he did.

    post-padding is one or two words, or incomplete sentences with the intent of simply raising your post count.

    Those are full sentences in response to earlier posts and spread out over several minutes. It would possibly be easier to just quote them all into one post though.

    Moved on to the next one once he got paid. That plus he's not the same player.

    He is still one of the best 10 players in baseball.

    Hell, I'm not naive enough to say Griffey was clean and he was my favorite player.

    So, I guess for once, we kind of agree.
