Angels Tuesday Lineup: Pujols "Back" at 1B

1-2 - Daniel Shirey

Her Majesty is back at First Base despite a recent bout with back spasms. That'll show 'em Albert.

Mike Scioscia has revealed his infinite wisdom in composing a pretty decent Anegls lineup and also his cowardice in the shadow of an aching Future Hall of Famer by sticking Her Majesty Pujols not only in the 3-spot of the lineup, but also grinding down what is left of his connective tissue by playing him in the field at 1B when the luxury of DH goes to young Cron.

Besides that drama this is far from the worst Halo lineup you will ever see and Hot Hot Hot Aybar is batting fifth, kind of hilarious and yet pretty deserved at the moment.

the visiting Minnesota Twins will face:

  1. Kole Calhoun
  2. Mike Trout
  3. Albert Pujols
  4. Josh Hamilton
  5. Erick Aybar
  6. Howie Kendrick
  7. C.J. Cron
  8. David Freese
  9. Hank Conger

Our starting pitcher is C.J. Wilson ...so since the DH bats for the Pitcher, is this the first combo of pitcher/Dh with the same "Initialed-Name" to ever "take/not take" the field in an MLB game?
