Pujols' Elbow

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3249192
This should be interesting to watch. But I don't think if the Cards do lose him it will really matter because I don't see them going anywhere.

Albert Pujols-1B-Cardinals Mar. 6 - 1:29 pm et

According to Cardinals team doctor George Paletta, Albert Pujols has a "high grade" tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, as well as bone spurs, inflammation and arthritis in the joint -- all of which have likely developed as a reaction to the ligament tear.

Sounds about right. Paletta said the ligament's condition has not appreciably worsened since it was first injured in 2003, but the surrounding issues have become somewhat more pronounced over that time. Still, neither Paletta nor Dr. James Andrews recommended surgery over the winter. Pujols will likely need Tommy John surgery at some point, but it's not going to happen until the ligament blows out or the surrounding issues make playing too difficult. As things stand now, there's little reason to think the elbow will be more of an issue than it was last year or the year before.

Do Cardinals managment really think they have a chance this year without Carpenter ( an ace when healthy) & an avg. pitcher on the mend in Mulder & close to major surgery candidate in Pujols? They should just talk him into having the surgery & go into rebuilding mode for this year.

Let guys like Ankiel,Ryan,Ludwick,Barton & Rasmus play full time & get the major league experience that could be helpful for them in 09'. Izturis,Kennedy & Miles are the type of players who should have to beat out the kids instead of visa-versa.

It's been getting worse and worse over time.......imagine what his numbers would have been like if he had a healthy elbow.
