WATCH: Albert Pujols pranks Bartolo Colon on mound after flying out
What happened to pitcher vs. batter protocol? That went out the window on Sunday as Albert Pujols untucked Bartolo Colon’s jersey after flying out to deep center field. Watch, as the Fellow Dominican Republic native Pujols tugs at the unsuspecting Colon’s uniform top (via MLB.com)
On a somewhat serious baseball note, I have a few questions:
1) What happened to Albert Pujols power? Two years ago, a high flat one like that would be 450 feet or more. Warning track power?
2) Is this a little too casual? You’re losing 6-0 and get (kinda) robbed on a ball at the wall and you’re fooling around like it’s the Cactus League?
3) Plus aren’t these division rivals? Would you see something like this in a Cards-Cubs, Giants-Dodgers, Yankees-Red Sox Game.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim seem to be a little too country club for me, and not enough Fight Club.
