Will Dodgers Re-Sign Albert Pujols? Why He Could Go Back to Cardinals & Proof He was a Great Signing

Many questioned why the Dodgers signed Albert Pujols after he was released by the Angels back in May. But months later, it’s clear that adding the 3-time NL MVP was a good signing by LA. We dive into the numbers to prove that Pujols has done everything the Dodgers had hoped he would and then some. Next, we discuss if bringing Pujols back next year makes sense for the Dodgers and it hinges on whether MLB will implement the universal designated hitter in the National League.

  1. His presence has been great for the chemistry of the clubhouse. Class guy and great role model for kids. He’s like another coach on the bench.

  2. Why would Pujols go to St. Louis? Isn’t Molina retiring? He won’t know anyone on the team.

  3. Literally the dumbest video Ive ever seen. His WAR is -.05. The only reason the dodgers signed him is because they could pay him the league average. He’ll be another year older next year, and won’t sign for league minimum.

    The video you’re showing was a seeing eye grounder. Which is pretty much all Pujols hit’s these days.

    And the whole “club house effect” is bullshit. They won the World Series last year. The club house was fine.

    Lastly, showing the dodgers record pre and post Pujols, when he’s barely played, is hilarious.

    But, thanks for the laughs.

  4. A “great signing”. Well, I guess it was “great” compared to like signing Billy Mckinney, or Yoshi Tsutsugo, or Nate Jones, or James Sherfy, or Shane Greene, or Cole Hamels, or Trevor Baurer!

    But hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut, eventually.

  5. Almost no chance Pujols retires after 2021. He’s within 19 hits of 10th place all time and 21 homers short of 700 – not to mention the fact that he’s playing with a winning team and, clearly, enjoying himself enormously. No idea where he’ll play – just that he will.
