Joe Posnanski: The Real Albert Pujols

There have been a glut of articles recently written about Albert Pujols. Some (many) have been crap. Posnanski has written, in my opinion, one of the better pieces. "Every baseball fan, it seems, has a theory on why Albert Pujols left St. Louis for Los Angeles — riches, fame, bright lights, a feeling of disrespect, whatever. I suspect that none of those reasons is exactly wrong … and none of them are exactly right, either. Nobody but Albert Pujols really knows what has driven him to become the greatest baseball player in the world. And I suspect that he couldn’t ever really explain it to us, even if he wanted to."
