(Following up my post from earlier in the year.)
On May 29th, Albert Pujols saw his line for the year sit at
.257 BA, .326 OBP, .395 SLG, .722 OPS
Epicly awful for a man with a career line of
.330 BA, .424 OBP, .621 SLG, 1.045 OPS
at the time. Now it's September 16th. Albert Pujols just went 4 for 4 against the Phillies. His line for the year is now:
.301 BA, .372 OBP, .549 SLG, .921 OPS
This is simply stunning. After an brutally awful April & May (which likely included a hidden injury) Albert Pujols has performed well enough to get his batting average back up above .300 and have an OPS over .900. It's an incredible year by normal human standards, definitely subpar for Albert Pujols standards, but Albert Pujols' legend continues to grow.
